Mettler-Toledo optimises checkweighing flexibility for manufacturers with the new C Series
Product inspection specialist, Mettler-Toledo Garvens, has launched the new dynamic C Series of checkweighers.
The scalable model range is designed to optimise flexibility on production and packaging lines, helping to ensure manufacturers around the world are equipped for the market demands of the future.
The new C Series comprises three main product lines.
The turnkey C31 StandardLine has been designed especially for packages weighing up to 6kg, with a throughput rate of 200 units per minute.
It can be combined with metal detection technology to provide checkweighing and foreign body detection in one compact system.
It also offers water-protected conveyor belts and stable guide rails.
The C33 PlusLine is capable of weighing packages between 7g and 7.5kg, at throughput rates of up to 300 units per minute.
In addition to offering optional features, such as encapsulated and highly-resistant conveyor belts for the weighing of sharp granules, the machine can be combined with one of three complementary advanced metal detection systems.
The C35 AdvancedLine covers a weighing range from 3g to 10kg and measures up to 600 units per minute. The system can be customised with a wide range of ejection, transport and conveyor belt options.
It can be integrated with metal detection, vision and x-ray inspection technology in a compact and space-saving combination system.
The C Series also boasts the C21 StandardLine and C23 PlusLine model variants for larger products, weighing between 80g and 80kg. Both are capable of throughput rates of up to 200 packs per minute.
All models in the C Series are capable of supporting protocols for Industry 4.0 environments.
This includes everything, from the RS-232 interface and Gareco, to fieldbus standards such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, PROFIBUS DP and DeviceNet and OPC DA/UA for seamless integration and highly automated data exchange.
All models also allow gapless real-time monitoring of all critical control points (CCPs) to guarantee end-to-end compliance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC) principles.
Meanwhile, the waterproof stainless steel housing and bevelled edges allow for quick and easy cleaning, ensuring compliance with ISO 14-159 hygiene standards and European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines.
