A new multihead combination weigher, the MBP C1, is available from PFM Packaging Machinery.

It uses the same software as the firm’s top-of-the-range models to provide a speed/accuracy ratio which it claims is higher than other budget-priced machines of similar output. The weigher has been designed for dry goods such as snacks, confectionery and biscuits and is available with 10 or 14 heads to give a maximum speed of 75 and 120 weighings a minute, respectively.

The MBP C1 weigher features interchangeable weighing modules. "The MBP C1 uses all 10 hoppers for maximum accuracy at speeds of 60 a minute and beyond," said sales and marketing director Chris Bolton.
