Manage give-away with an effective weighing and packaging line
In each industrial food production company, give-away occurs. It can be generated, for example, as product residue in manufacturing equipment and piping, or as packaging stage weighing errors. Inaccuracies in weighing can impact production costs, especially in the case of more expensive food components such as fish and seafood.
One way of reducing waste in the food industry is to make the volume and the weight of the portions as optimal as possible. The most effective approach to achieve this is by automating the production line processes that involve dosing and packaging.
Precision in food production with dosing systems
Dosing is all about speed and precision. Automating dosing ensures consistent quality, and with robotics, you can add even more precision and versatility to the process. Collaborative robots, known as cobots, can be easily programmed to perform new tasks when needed. By combining robotics, dosing equipment, and manual tasks, you can automate individual functions as well as entire or partial processes.
The payback time for an individual dosing machine should be less than two years. Automatisation of dosing and packaging processes is easy to start with the most repetitive tasks. This also frees up labor, as in smaller production teams, it’s essential to have employees focus on more challenging tasks that are harder to automate. Proper production management with versatile dosing and packaging solutions, ensures production efficiency and a quick return on investment
Kometos dosing and package line selection features a multi-head weigher system from Multiweigh that helps reduce and minimize give-away in food production.
Multiweigh solutions include multihead weighers, distribution units, processing platforms, distribution equipment, packaging and closing machines, metal detectors and X-ray monitoring equipment.
With the Multiweigh multi-head weighing system, the doses are measured with the precision of hundredths and thus on completion, the customer receives the portion size promised on the label, but nothing extra as a gift.
Extensive solutions for the varying needs of the food industry
The Multiweigh weighing system has provided an excellent addition to Kometos’ Finntray dosing and packaging line solutions. It has enabled us to offer our customers comprehensive solutions for packaging lines where efficiency and precision are required.
Together with the Finncold thawing and freezing product line and Finnmodules production plants we can provide the food processing industry with extensive lines and solutions that cover every step of the production, from preparing products to packaging and defrosting.
