Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK will again be demonstrating the world-beating capabilities of its leading inspection and automatic weighing machinery at this year’s PPMA Total show [www.ppmashow.co.uk] in October.
Yamato is exhibiting at PPMA Total Show 2019 at the NEC in Birmingham to demonstrate the vital role that automatic weighers and inspection systems play throughout the food packaging process.
Yamato will be showing customers how it can help ensure compliance with government and supermarket standards using state-of-the-art metal detection and X-ray technology.
Located on stand B50, Hall 5, the Yamato team will be showing visitors to the exhibition its innovative automatic inspection YX20 X-ray equipment. It is compliant with BRC, Tesco and M&S standards and features an advanced linear array with proven inspection algorithms.
An X-ray system adds another layer of important checks to your processing and packaging line. Coming in the processing line after metal detection and checkweighing, an X-ray machine provides an additional deep visual check in real time for foreign bodies in your packaged products and automated rejection.
Andrea Spencer, commercial operations manager or Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK, said:
“You have to appoint a Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) to ensure you comply with ionising radiations regulations: we can train them.”
This flexible system suits a variety of industry applications, helping to reduce waste and costs, improve efficiency, enhance food safety and ensure compliance.
Also on show will be Yamato’s C Frame System. It is a unique, innovative pneumatic frame that is easily manoeuvrable in small areas – allowing you to raise and lower multihead weighers into position on the production line. It is ideal where space is at a premium and where production lines are in close proximity. One system can be removed and cleaned while the others remain in production – minimising the impact of downtime and maintaining productivity.
A full range of Yamato weighing equipment will be on show including Omega multihead weighers, the Alpha Advance multihead machine, the Table Top Semi-automatic Dataweigh (TDSW) range and I-Series checkweighers.
Yamato will be demonstrating its total weighing and checking solutions and how they can be implemented in all parts of the packaging process in all the main food processing sectors – salads and fresh produce, IQF, snacks, nuts and confectionery.
The Omega multihead weighers will be showcasing Yamato’s capabilities in the salad industry and the frozen food sectors respectively. Its Alpha Advance machines will demonstrate their suitability for snack, confectionery and nuts packaging.
At the other end of the production process Yamato will be showing off its checkweighing solutions including metal detection and combi-check weighing with its TSDW, SDW, I Series combination machine and I Series machines.
Compliance with the industry package of food safety/fail safe operation features is crucial and Yamato will be demonstrating how it achieves this throughout the production process. It will also be showing how it is possible to respond quickly to the changing compliance landscape. Andrea said:
“We’re excited to be showcasing at the PPMA Total event again. Customers are interested in the processes and machinery that keep their lines running. This event gives us a valuable opportunity to engage with them and discuss how they can best achieve their objectives with Yamato’s checkweighers and range of weighing machines.”
