Sartorius Intec is endeavouring to set new standards for packaged food production lines with its new Flexus® checkweigher. The Flexus® with its wide range of configuration options meets practically every requirement. Much detail has been put into creating a wholly hygienic design. Product weight and integrity checking is an integral part of control in the production of packaged food. At the same time, companies are also subject to the strictest hygiene standards, and it is these requirements that the checkweigher Flexus® was designed to meet.
Aachen-based Sartorius Intec product manager, Stefanie Dahmen, who has been involved in the intensive development process right from the start, said: “Flexus® has been consistently developed according to the EHEDG hygienic design guidelines. We have minimised contact and horizontal surfaces and the open frame has no hollow part. Together with the increased floor clearance, this means that Flexus® guarantees easy inspection as well as quick and safe cleaning, thus saving our customers time and money.”
The focus was not only on hygienic design when Flexus® was being developed. “On the additional premise of flexibility, we were able to produce a hygienic, high-performance checkweigher that, much like a Swiss army knife, has a wide range of applications.
This makes Flexus® an investment with real potential,” said Stefanie.
The dynamic checkweigher handles quick transitioning between products thanks to a number of practical features. For example, additional modules can be attached to the sturdy construction’s upper frame without difficulty and the width of the conveyor belts can be easily altered. There is also a comprehensive selection of rejectors and a wide range of data interfaces for seamless integration into any IT landscape. Amongst all its flexibility the Flexus®, seems certain to become the new benchmark in checkweigher design.
“We’ve had a number of firm enquiries,” confirms Stefanie Dahmen, referring to the successful sales launch of the new checkweigher with hygienic design.
