Multi-Head Weighing Machines
Multi-head weighing machines are a type of packaging equipment that is commonly used in the food industry to weigh products into bags, boxes and trays. Having several weighing heads – often ten or more – which are arranged in a circular or linear pattern, the weighing head has a load cell and a hopper that weighs out the required amount of product into the container below. The weighing heads work in unison to accurately weigh out the required amounts of product.

The Autopack multi-head weighers are available in linear or radial designs.
The weighers come in a range of sizes with between 10 and 32 weighing heads and finishes of stainless steel, dimpled, PTFE coated and plastic finishes along with varied angles of the chutes and trays. The weigher will be customised to give the optimum performance of speed and accuracy depending on the products and how they move through the weigher. Multi-head weighers are normally integrated into automatic packaging lines because of the speed at which they operate, but they can be used as semi-automatic machines as well.

Gawith Hoggarth purchased a bag sealing machine from Autopack to increase production speed. From the initial discussion through to our first operation, Autopack provided a thorough and friendly customer service. I hope this is the start of a long relationship on our way to full automation.

As a fast-growing business Autopack have been invaluable in helping guide us to the right machinery. Jamie has been fantastic as our point of contact, keeping us up to date with our orders and advising on timescales. Machinery was tested on site at Autopack with our own product prior to committing to a purchase with videos and samples sent to us for review, giving us confidence that the equipment was the right fit for us. We’ve found Autopack to be highly competitive on price and a big support, in beginning to automate our production line.
