Launch of an individual head reject system

With the launch of the new S5R option (individual head reject system), MULTIPOND is introducing a new fully-automatic multihead weighing solution for single piece weigh counting, the weighing of a small number of pieces or alternatively small target weights. The S5R is the perfect solution for today´s complex ready meal industry.
Ready meal lines are becoming ever-more complicated with the inclusion of a multitude of different components. A meal might consist of one or two main component and several more expensive ingredients. At the moment, these other ingredients are often hand placed as the requirement could be for a single piece or a small number of pieces. MULTIPOND has with their new S5R option a fully-automatic weighing solution for this application.
The S5R option is available on a number of MULTIPOND multihead weighers from 16 heads to 36. The unit is based on a standard twin memory hopper weigher. The outer memory hopper is replaced by a second pivoting funnel which can either deposit product into a `good combination` or alternatively divert it to a reject position, as demonstrated in the photo. Using this solution there is no loss in weighing efficiency as rejects are evacuated on an individual head basis whilst the rest of the weigher can continue weighing resulting in no missed cycles.
The rejected product can be manually or automatically feed back into the system reducing wastage. The S5R can be fitted to a section of the weigher for mixture applications for some ingredients.
MULTIPOND is the sales and service division of the German based manufacturing company ATOMA which has been established since 1946. The first automatic weighing system for the packaging industry was launched in 1963.
Headquarters and manufacturing facilities are in Waldkraiburg, Germany, about 65km east of Munich. Beside the global network of sales and service representatives, there are four wholly owned sales and service subsidiaries in the UK, the Netherlands, France and the US.
