WTS Weigh Transfer System
Designed by Foodmate in collaboration with ChickSort®UK, the WTS Weigh Transfer System boasts speeds in excess of 12000 bph and performs weighing accuracy of ± 10 gram. This new weigh transfer machine offers both speed and accuracy in a simple and compact solution.
Fundamental to the design is a simple but effective transfer mechanism that is easy to set-up and maintain. In addition, the WTS displays a triple load cell weigh head arrangement, which maximizes the weighing time of each bird. Because the weigh heads are stationery, they can be mounted on a separate tower to avoid low frequency vibration from the machine adversely affecting the weighing. Compared to weigh transfer systems from other suppliers, this solution maximizes the weighing “window” without over complicating the design with revolving electronics, slip rings etc.
The design also avoids the problems associated with existing singlehead and multi-head weighing machines where the loss of one weigh head has a catastrophic effect on production, requiring immediate machine maintenance and down-time. In the unlikely event of a weigh head being lost on this machine, the result is reduced weighing accuracy rather than birds not being weighed at all. Furthermore, as each weigh head is used to measure the weight of every bird, advanced diagnostics allow the automatic detection of weighing problems before they have a negative effect on production.
