Ishida Europe has introduced a new range of ’Screw Feed’ multi-head weighers, which enable the automatic handling of fresh ’sticky’ products such as seafood and meat. The design incorporates rotating corkscrews with the familiar circular multi-head layout, replacing traditionally used radial feed troughs.

The weighers are specifically designed for products that cannot be moved by feeder vibration. The first model features three-litre stepper motor-driven anti-stick metal hoppers and has a top speed of 80wpm. The second version incorporates 1.5-litre pneumatic-driven plastic scrapper hoppers and has a top speed of 60wpm. Both feature a remote control unit.
