Enhance quality control of your products by entrusting weight check inspection to one of our fully automatic in-motion check weighing systems. The controller unit WEIGHT SHARK® 5500 covers a product weight range from 4 grams up to 60 kg. Weight checking is possible regardless to product package – boxes, trays, bags, pouches… Each product is accurately weighed while running over the conveyor, and in case of over- or under-weight it is separated into reject bins by various available rejection systems.

WEIGHT SHARK® 5500 supports weighing of up to 230 products per minute and it is possible to integrate it into production lines of speeds up to 90 m/s. Certainly, the maximum speed of weighing is limited by product characteristics, weight, size, etc.

Connection of the WS 5500 controller unit with external equipment (barcode scanner, inkjet printer, metal detector, filling machine, etc.) and its integration into existing production line is easily conducted through advanced I/O interfaces. We especially recommend the combination of a WEIGHT SHARK® 5500 with the METAL SHARK® BD metal detector as a unique and complete product inspection solution. In that case your product is controlled with highest accuracy and reliability against weight failure and metal impurities.
