SPC - Multiheads weigher

GEA multihead weighers guarantee the highest performances thanks to their remarkable accuracy and reliability. The highest speed version with 20 hoppers, combined with a continuous motion packaging unit, is able to pack up to 130 bags per minute.

The SPC multihead weighers are available in a wide range of versions, each one designed for a different field of application:

• dealing with short-cut pasta, the 10, 14 and 20 hoppers versions are available with a speed that reaches 130 weighings per minute;
• for nest pasta, the 10 and 14 hoppers versions are available in order to guarantee the highest speed up to 45 weighings per minute.

All SPC weighers are equipped with some standards accessories, specifically designed for pasta production:

• central conveying system;
• shutter in the discharge cone;
• antispillage hopper;

SPC20 Multihead Weigher

SPC 20 - Multiheads weigher

The SPC20 series allows reliability, great accuracy and flexibility in weighing a wide range of products: a very versatile machine, which can be coupled with any vertical packaging machine, cartoning machine or horizontal thermoforming system.

When working with short-cut pasta it features 20 hoppers and can reach 130 weighings per minute

The weigher is composed of 20 single weighing heads which are located in circle and fed by a continuous flux of product coming from a central distribution system. The opening of the hoppers is driven by stepper motors. 

The SPC20 weighers are supplied with either a feeding belt or a vibrating plate controlled by a weight detection cell and/or photocell. The central cone constantly feeds the vibrators and the weigher can be supplied with a brush-less driven motor shutter, located inside the unloading chutes to prevent product breakages (the shutter can be easily excluded by program).

Particular attention has been paid to the weigher accessibility and cleaning, in fact all the parts in touch with the product are made in food-grade stainless steel. 

Moreover, specific devices have been implemented in order to avoid dust intrusion. The simple construction of the hoppers fits makes their disassemble easy, with machine stops being reduced thanks to the easy replacement of each weighing head.

A back-lit LCD touch-screen type terminal with local intelligence is the operator interface. The display is equipped with an industrial PC with hard disk and USB port. All SPC20 weighers are equipped with some standards accessories, specifically designed for the pasta production:

  • central conveying system;
  • antispillage hopper;
  • possibility to store up to 100 different production programs;
  • self-diagnostic system to detects eventual stoppages and identifies the causes;

SPC20 Performance (Referred to 500 g of tubetti n.102 Pavan Dies and Moulds Division Catalogue 400 g/l).

  • Weighing speed: up to 130 weighments per minute.

SPC14 Multihead Weigher

SPC 14 - Multiheads weigher

The SPC14 series allows reliability, great accuracy and flexibility in weighing a wide range of products: a very versatile machine, which can be coupled with any vertical packaging machine, cartoning machine or horizontal thermoforming system.

The weigher is composed of 14 single weighing heads which are located in circle and fed by a continuous flux of product coming from a central distribution system. The opening of the hoppers is driven by stepper motors. 

The SPC weighers are supplied with either a feeding belt or a vibrating plate controlled by a weight detection cell and/or photocell. The central cone constantly feeds the vibrators and the weigher is supplied with a powered shutter located inside the unloading chutes to prevent product breakages (the shutter can be easily excluded by program).

Particular attention has been paid to the weigher accessibility and cleaning, in fact all the parts in touch with the product are made in food-grade stainless steel. 

Moreover, specific devices have been implemented in order to avoid dust intrusion. The simple construction of the hoppers fits makes their disassemble easy, with machine stops being reduced thanks to the easy replacement of each weighing head.

The SPC14 series can be made with larger hoppers:

  • ensuring the handling of big volumes (SPCK14);
  • specifically designed for nest shape pasta (SPCN14) with the possibility also to put a double hopper timing shutter placed under the weigher, which permits the product rejection and sliding.

A back-lit LCD touch-screen type terminal with local intelligence is the operator interface. The display is equipped with an industrial PC with hard disk and USB port. All SPC14 are equipped with some standards accessories, specifically designed for the pasta production:

  • central conveying system;
  • shutter in the discharge cone;
  • antispillage hopper;
  • possibility to store up to 100 different production programs;
  • self-diagnostic system to detects eventual stoppages and identifies the causes
