ACCUWEIGH is now distributing a series of vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) machines fitted with multi-head weighers, designed for food manufacturers.

Each system offers a compact footprint, measuring only 2.25 metres in height, saving space in the factory.

According to the company, the usual need for a working platform to access the multi-head weigher is eliminated with the multi-head weigher, which is fully-supported by strong metal legs integrated into the unit’s chassis. 

Constructed in stainless steel, Accuweigh’s AW-MVA series VFFS and multi-head weigher is available in configurations using either ten or fourteen weigh buckets.

Designed for small-to-medium size bags, the combination can weigh and package product into bags up to 190mm wide by 230mm long.

Both units use servo motors for lower power consumption, and a large full-colour touchscreen provides functionality for both machines, Salter says.
