The WS 910 weighing system is a new development that Handtmann will be presenting to the industry specialists at the IFFA 2019 for the first time. With the multifunctional VF 800 series vacuum fillers, Handtmann has developed intelligent portioning and control modules for modern production processes. They function, among other things, as the central control module for networking and synchronization with other process modules, such as the new Handtmann WS 910 weighing system.

The new WS 910 weighing system from Handtmann offers cost reduction through minced meat products with guaranteed accurate-to-the-gram weights. It is particularly useful in the application areas of minced meat and in the production of formed products. The WS 910 weighing system with the SB 912 sorting belt is always part of a turnkey solution, integrated into a production line for process monitoring. The main functions comprise production control, monitoring and weight control, as well as ejecting under- or overweight portions after the forming and portioning process. The weighing system also forms part of the Handtmann LineControl concept. On the one hand, this ensures user-friendliness (product selection via the vacuum filler only; setting of the scales and communication then automatically in the line), and, on the other hand, process reliability due to increased line efficiency.

Using the new WS 910 weighing system with SB 912 sorting belt eliminates the need for rework significantly, and results in savings in packaging, resources and handling. Fewer product ejections due to weights accurate to the gram further boost the production line’s efficiency and production output. Reducing give-away to a minimum by providing 100 % control through reference weighing of each portion, also helps achieve significant cost savings.

The IFFA will see live demonstrations of the new weighing system in a line solution for the production of minced meat products – from filling to depositing into the packaging: Hall 12, Stand A80.
