The speed and efficiency of Ishida multihead weighers at specialist crisp manufacturer Pipers Crisps have played a key role in the company’s continuing success.

The latest model to be installed at the company’s factory in Brigg, Lincolnshire is a 14-head CCW-R series model in a special “crisp” specification designed to handle product quickly and gently throughout the weighing process. This new packing line also includes an advanced Ishida DACS-G checkweigher with an exceptionally fast and accurate digital loadcell, for a final quality control check.

The R series multihead weigher incorporates Ishida’s proven R Series technology comprising its unique combination calculation software, 5-stage digital filter, anti-floor vibration and Ishida-made load cells that enable it to maintain excellent accuracy at high speeds. At Pipers, the weigher is achieving excellent accuracy to within 1% of target at speeds of 80 packs per minute for 40g bags and 28 packs per minute for the 150g size.

Pipers Crisps’ Production and Operations Manager Shaun Watson explains: “It’s essential that our packs are presented with an accurate and consistent weight – and this is what the Ishida weighers deliver. Equally important is customer service and again Ishida continues to demonstrate excellent commitment in this area.”
