Produce Pack Weight Control

Eliminate Costly Giveaway & Gain Operator Packing Efficiency Data

Produce Pack Weight Control

Vantage Produce Pack Weight Control System prevents costly production line giveaway and ensures ‘on target’, consistently weighed finished products (Click here for PTI solutions).

The simple to use line management software ensures that each element of the final product is correctly portioned within the weight tolerances set by management, removing the control from the shop floor operators.

‘Take-away’ mode allows full containers of product to be zeroed, enabling operators to weigh out portions using loss in weight with auto-zero, eliminating the need for operators to tare scales between portions.

Vantage Produce Packing Control allows a rapid payback with fresh-cut and high value commodities where the accuracy of the portion is critical to the profitability of a business.

The Vantage PPC system provides effortless compliance with BRC, FDA, FSMA, and many other quality standards.

Hardware Specifications

The Vantage Touch Screen is a NEMA4 (IP66) heavy  industrial computer designed for harsh manufacturing  applications. It is usually supplied with a stainless steel fabricated stand with a built in scale, however the terminal can be supplied and connected to most existing scales and balances using internal connections.

The terminal is constructed using compression seals to maximize ingress protection.  Cables entries are sealed and protected.

The Terminals are supplied with software applications which run on Windows or Linux as a background operating system.

Stainless steel stands, scales and printer enclosures are fully welded and polished to high manufacturing standards.

Supported Peripherals

  • Weighing Equipment (2 x analogue inputs, 3 x serial RS232 inputs).
  • Bar-code Readers (hardwired USB or Bluetooth)
  • Label Printers (network or serial RS232)
  • Report Printers (network)
  • Temperature Probes (serial RS232)
  • PLC & switchgear (serial or network)

Networking

The terminals utilize TCP/IP communications to a database using a wired or wireless LAN.  This allows multiple site operations to communicate with a central database.  Terminal support is conducted using VNC or RDC.
