The automatic checkweigher is a high-speed, high-accuracy online checkweighing equipment, which can be integrated with various quantitative packaging production lines and conveying systems. It is mainly used to check whether the product weight is qualified, whether there are missing parts in the package, and provide feedback signal conditioning and feeding equipment, etc.

The automatic checkweighing system feeds back the checkweighing information to the quantitative packaging control system in real time, and automatically controls the packaging volume in real time. Packaging bags that exceed the measurement tolerance are automatically rejected and an alarm is automatically issued. 

Of course, if some operational errors occur during use, the final test result will be inaccurate. The following are eight precautions for using the checkweigher.

1. The sensor of the weight sorting machine is a very sensitive measuring device and must be treated with care. Avoid vibrations, squeezing or objects falling on the weighing platform (weighing conveyor belt). It is forbidden to place tools on the weighing platform.

2. During the transportation of the automatic checkweigher, the weighing conveyor belt must be fixed in its original position with screws and nuts.

3. The products to be weighed must enter the automatic checkweigher regularly, that is, the product spacing is as equal as possible, which is a prerequisite for reliable weighing. Please keep the photoelectric switch clean. Because dust, dirt, or moisture condenses on the optical components, it may cause malfunctions. If necessary, wipe these parts gently with a soft cloth or cotton cloth.

4. Please keep the weighing belt conveyor of the automatic checkweigher clean, because stains or residues left by the product may cause malfunctions. You can use compressed air to blow away the dirt or wipe with a moistened soft cloth.

5. If the checkweigher is equipped with a belt conveyor, please check the conveyor regularly. The conveyor belt must not touch any guards or transition plates (smooth plates between adjacent conveyor belts), as this will cause additional wear and vibration, which may have a negative impact on accuracy. If guards are installed, check that they are in good condition and that they are installed in the correct position. Replace worn belts as quickly as possible.

6. If the checkweigher scale is equipped with a chain conveyor, please check the protective devices regularly to ensure that they are in good condition and installed in the correct position.

7. When installing a rejector with an independent base or a rejector with an independent support (column), please make sure that the foot screws or the bottom plate are firmly fixed on the ground. This can reduce disturbing vibrations.

8. Keep a sufficient inventory of spare parts, especially spare parts that are easy to wear, so as to shorten the downtime caused by spare parts damage.
