The fruit can be directly fed at the top of the weigher through an elevated conveying system or using the optional feeding elevator specially designed for the PEG14.
A vibrating plate spreads the product evenly across the 14 vibrating channels (fig.1) where it is gently transported on a softhair coating base to the weighing buckets.
The vibration can be varied to control the in-feed.
A sophisticated algorithm processes the weights stored in each weighing bucket and selects the optimum combination to reach the target weight.
The product is discharged from the weighing buckets via a 2 flap opening system on to a soft rolling brush (fig.2) – this absorbs the drop onto the twin exit belts.
The exit belts have been fitted with a soft-hair coated base allowing a fast but gentle transport to the connected bagging machines.
To increase production, a buffer situated immediately before the bagging machine stores the next available pack.
