Yamato 2008 14 head multi head weigher.
Alpha Combination Weighers
Simple design and superb operation
High Performance Weighing Accuracy
The Yamato Alpha Plus Series weighers achieve the highest accuracy by combining Yamato’s proprietary Strain Gauge Load Cells with Yamato’s patented Digital Filtering that virtually eliminates the influence of external vibration.
Flexibility, High Speed, Economical
The Yamato Alpha Plus Series weighers are available in three configurations:10 head for speed up to 70 weighments per minute, 14 head for 120 weighments per minute, and 20 head for twin applications. Each represents an excellent combination of value and performance.
All operating systems, including the radial feeders, are totally enclosed to provide superior sanitation. And, all product contact surfaces are removable without the use of tools.
Radius Corner and Springless Bucket
The springless bucket design with large radius corners makes it easy and quick to clean. Radius corner buckets are easy to clean reducing downtime.
The Alpha Plus Series weighers use accurate and repeatable stepper motors for bucket door actuation. Motor patterns are adjustable and programmable to ensure the highest speed and efficiency for a wide variety of products.
Modular Actuator Unit
The modular Actuator Unit incorporates the high-performance Yamato Strain Gauge Load Cell with the stepper motor drive system. This modular design makes troubleshooting and maintenance easy and quick.
The color touch screen uses intuitive graphics to make operation, troubleshooting, and recovery easy to learn and simple to use.
The load cell level detector under the top cone controls the product flow from the feeding system ensuring proper feed conditions to maximize efficiency and accuracy. The color touch screen displays the amount of product on the top cone.
Yamato’s patented Digital Filter reduces the influence of external vibration resulting in highly accurate weighments.
Color Touch Screen Operator Interface
Liquid Crystal Color Touch Screen uses easy-to-understand graphics in a simple and straightforward way to make training quick and operating easy. And, the display can be viewed in any of 16 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Hungarian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Slovene, Chinese and Japanese.
All important system conditions, including voltages, input/output status, software versions, and analog/digital converter values can be monitored and diagnosed through the color touch screen operator interface.
Through the use of modular actuators, easy-to-use operator interface, self-diagnostics, and easy maintenance, the Yamato Alpha Plus Series weighers provide maximum up-time for maximum return on investment.
Using Strain Gauge Load Cells, the computer examines the weight in each weigh bucket. From those weights, the optimal combination to obtain the target weight is instantaneously selected and discharged. If a combination of 5 weigh buckets is selected out of 10 the number of possible combinations is 252. In the same way, if 4 out of 10, or 6 out of 10 are selected there are 210 possible combinations. The total available number of possible combinations then becomes 672 for each cycle.
