Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched a new checkweigher for use in the food industry.

The Thermo Scientific Versa GP is suitable for high-speed weighing of small to large packages in dry or wet environments. The machine is capable of weighing, control and reject functions at line speeds of up to 350 packages per minute.

It has an adjustable belt height and there is the option of fitting the infeed conveyor with a Thermo Scientific APEX metal detector in order to provide a complete weight control and contaminant inspection station.

The Versa GP’s controller is based on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system and includes a colour, touchscreen interface.
