Food & Beverage Packaging Scales

Food and beverage packaging scales are used on production lines to ensure the accuracy of mixtures and recipes, regulate the filling process and in shipping, receiving and inventory management. Southwestern Scale offers many solutions to the food processing and packaging market.

Highlighted below are two examples of checkweigher scales that food production companies can use to reduce the number of overweight packages and eliminate underweights.

I-Series Checkweigher Scale

The I-Series Checkweigher is a fully automated packaging and weighing system that weighs the empty container, inserts the contents, weighs the filled container, calculates the net weight, and relays it to the filler for more accurate feeding. The weighing value and operation history data is recorded and stored in a computer so it can be managed centrally and easily accessed for analysis or diagnostic purposes. Learn more about the I-Series Checkweigher scale.

Semi Automatic Combination Weigher (TSDW)

The TSDW is a combination scale for processing fixed weight food packages consistently at the correct weight. Since it is equipped with a belt conveyor system, it is ideal for packaging fragile products such as mushrooms, fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood and poultry. Learn more about the TSDW.
