After most of last year’s trade fairs were cancelled due to Covid, Minebea Intec will be appearing at a host of shows in the coming months, starting at PPMA (NEC, Birmingham, September 28-30).
The leading provider of weighing and inspection solutions will be unveiling a range of pioneering products and powerful software tools that increase the efficiency and output of production plants.
New labelling solutions portfolio: Four functions in one device
With the manual price labelling system WPL-S and the automatic variant WPL-A, Minebea Intec is opening up a new portfolio for applications in the weighing and labelling of products. Both offer the ideal complete package for customers in the food industry: weighing, price labelling, labelling and product traceability in just one device. However, it is not only new products that will be presented at the show – some of the manufacturer’s products have received a major upgrade.
Accurate high-speed weighing
In production, maximum output with high quality is one of the top priorities: high-speed weighing is therefore currently an exciting topic in the industry. Minebea Intec has given its checkweighers with EMFC technology a turbo upgrade and equipped them with a new load cell. The inspection solutions have received MID approval for belt speeds of up to 3 metres per second. This means that up to 600 products per minute can be accurately and reliably weighed. With the new load cells, the minimum weight has also been lowered: products of just 5 grams can be weighed accurately and reliably.
SPC@Enterprise software: for added efficiency
In addition to the optimal weighing solution, Minebea Intec also offers the right software to optimise efficiency and production capacities: Among other things, SPC@Enterprise, a software package for statistical process control and average weight control, will be presented at the trade fair.
SPC@Enterprise is currently available in version 4.0 and includes all the necessary options for prepacked goods and statistical process control, such as the collection of random samples as well as automatic checks throughout the entire process. By networking a wide range of devices and systems, the user has the option of statistically evaluating the collected data from the checkweighing of finished products as well as other measured values from the overall process, reacting with suitable measures and thus increasing the efficiency of his production.
Digital offer: Free of charge and available around the clock
In addition to physical trade fairs, the new Minebea Intec digital contact options remain. Interested parties will find a wide selection of free offers on the website. Minebea Intec offers two options for consultation and research on weighing and inspection solutions: interested parties can either book an appointment in the Virtual Showroom, where experts provide advise and answer questions. Alternatively, there are several online calculators to choose from which can be used to calculate the return on investment, for example. The webinars are the perfect compliment: in just 45 minutes, participants gain an insight into various issues relating to weighing and inspection solutions. Missed webinars can also be viewed afterwards at the participants convenience.
