WIPOTEC Weighing Technology will introduce the next generation of its Modular Multilane System at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas this September.

The new MMS 2 is 50% smaller than the previous model, and features a modular, plug-in-and-out design that aims to “significantly enhance” the unit’s flexibility. 

The MMS 2 is suited to use on production lines in a variety of settings, including quality control scenarios for vial and syringe filling and other scenarios necessitating customized inspection.

WIPOTEC reports that its space-saving design allows lane modules to be arranged side by side, and eliminates the need for an additional cabinet – a key benefit for machine manufacturers.

Meanwhile, the MMS 2 offers IP65 protection for safeguarding components against dust, foreign materials, water and other environmental factors.

All weigh cells of types SL-M-FS, SW-M-FS and SX-M-FS series can be used with the MMS 2. Like all WIPOTEC weigh cells, the MMS 2 utilizes high-tech Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) technology, a differentiating engineering design that reportedly “guarantees” precise weighing results.

In addition, the MMS 2 can be combined with the company’s Active Vibration Compensation (AVC) technology in situations where weighing results and cycle rates may be adversely affected by surrounding vibrations or interference.

Also at Pack Expo, WIPOTEC-OCS will showcase its recently introduced HC-A-V Checkweigher, a quality control solution that aims to combine sophisticated checkweighing technology with premium visual inspection. Providing two functions in one compact frame, the unit is applicable for an array of consumer packaged goods, including food and beverage items.
