WK Multihead weigher

WK Multihead weighers are engineered to professional weighing of potatoes, onions and root vegetables (including carrots and root parsley).

The basic idea of the multihead weighers lies in a number of separate weighing devices (depending on the model 7, 9 or 12), which weigh out smaller batches. The machine automatically chooses the best fitting combination and produces one best-fitting batch. In a standard model of the machine all the elements which have contact with the weighed products are made of acid-resistant stainless steel. Remaining elements of the weigher are powder-coated.

The standard equipment of the weigher includes: unloading belt, receiving platform sensor and service platform with a ladder. Legible, user-friendly Mitsubishi display enables a fully intuitive operation of the machine.

The capacity of the weighers varies within the range of 3 – 16,5 t/h and it depends on the batch (1-25 kg). Optionally the weighers can be fitted with buffer containers, which increase the capacity.
