WeighPack Systems has introduced the PrimoLinear T-25 Twin Lane Net Weigher, a bulk weigh-filling machine designed for accurate and efficient bulk filling into bags, boxes, and containers.

Claiming to be the first machine of its kind to integrate an in-line metal detector between the filling process and weigh bucket, the machine isolates any loads containing metal and guides the product into an inspection bin. As such, no metal contaminants should reach the final package.

Three cascading pans – transfer, bulk, and dribble – are featured per lane. It also offers a PrimoLinear Windows-based operating system; a digital camera with online support via WiFi or ethernet; an open frame design for easy cleaning; and a tool-free adjustable conveyor to tailor the system to different container sizes.

“We are excited to introduce our new bulk weigh filling machine to the market,” says Justin Taraborelli, vice president at WeighPack Systems Inc. “This machine is the result of our commitment to providing our customers with the best packaging solutions. We are confident that it will help businesses increase their productivity and efficiency.”

Back in April, SIG sought to negate the need for pre-sterilized pouches when filling products like baby food or sauces – instead launching a new filling system for pre-made, spouted aseptic pouches for in-line pouch sterilization.

Paxiom has also revealed a turnkey bulk nut vacuum packaging system set to increase efficiency and simplify the peanut packaging process. WeighPack provides the high-precision net weigh filling system with a vibratory triple pan configuration and a bulk and dribble system; the peanuts are then filled and packed into 20-40lbs corrugated cases for robotic palletizing and shipment, keeping the whole process within one company.
