McAllen, TX-based Fox Solutions, a leading fresh produce packing house equipment supplier, has introduced the industry to its newest NEWTEC 10-head weigher, the 4010XXB1 “Conweigher,” which was rolled out in Atlanta at the 2015 PMA Fresh Summit.
Rocking the very latest in conveyor belt technology, this high performance weigher provides packinghouses with optimal packaging efficiencies and the best tool-less cleaning and service.
The Conweigher’s efficiency comes from handling more bulk product, resulting in a higher output volume. Traditional weighers that deal with large product and portions use vibrating technology to move the product through the line, but the Conweigher’s conveyor belts result in a much faster production time.
The food grade belting and plastics can be quickly removed without tools for easy cleaning and sanitation, adding extensive food safety benefits.
Efficiencies are also found in the weigher’s capability to handle heavier items than previous generation machines, anything weighing 10 lbs. to 50 lbs. Because of its conveyor belt technology, the NEWTEC 4010XXB1 can pack 50-lb. equivalents at 20 per minute, saving total packaging time and increasing productivity.
“The response to the NEWTEC 4010XXB1 has been tremendous since its unveiling at Fresh Summit,” said Aaron Fox, Fox Solutions president. “This weigher has the dependability and performance that defines a NEWTEC machine, combined with the speed that will revolutionize fresh produce packing for the industry as a whole.”
Highlights of the NEWTEC 4010XXB1 include its full stainless steel construction and color touch-screen, as well as its 10-head weigher capacity for medium to large sized products. NEWTEC is an ideal machine for heavy weight boxes of produce that are not pattern-packed, and its computer accuracy and speeds render other bulk weighers obsolete.
