The J-series of checkweighers by Yamato offers users an innovative solution for a highly functional, economical and efficient machine.
The checkweighers can work at a speed of 480 ppm with an accuracy of 0.07 g. The new high rigid load cell shortens settle time for high speed and accuracy weighing, and the dual load cell removes low frequency vibration so that users can achieve high accuracy weighing even in operation environments with more vibration.
With a 10.4 inch colour touch screen, users are provided with higher visibility and usability of the machines, and the error location indication and parts replacement alert function enables for a speedier maintenance and minimised downtime.
