PPMA 2023: maximum product safety and efficiency at Minebea Intec

Visitors to Minebea Intec’s stand at PPMA 2023 in Birmingham from 26-28th September will be able to experience a new X-ray inspection system Dypipe which the manufacturer of weighing and inspection technology says guarantees an extremely high level of safety for viscous and liquid products.

It was developed to reliably detect foreign objects made of metal, stone, plastic, bone and glass whilst also rejecting defective or contaminated products.

The Dypipe is fitted with an innovative test piece feed system which enables verification of test pieces during production. This means that users can always be sure that the production process will function without any problems, with no lost production time. The Dypipe is fitted with an easy-to-open reject valve that has been specially developed to meet the high level of hygiene requirements for meat applications.

Another highlight on the exhibition stand will be a new user interface for checkweighers. The interface features intuitive operation and therefore offers maximum user friendliness. Checkweighers can be easily configured, controlled, tested and audited with the interface.

Regardless of whether users are programming a new product, adjusting line parameters or defining a batch record, the interface simplifies work and makes it more efficient. The operator terminal displays the overall equipment efficiency (OEE) and other statistics based on current weighing results. There are various log functions for audits. The operator terminal is fully MID certified with Minebea Intec weighing technology.

The stand will also showcase the Vision Inspection VisioPointer which is one of three Vision products from Minebea Intec. It is also one of the key products that helps drive automation within food production and manufacturing. Combined with the Automatic Weigh Price Labeller WPL-A customers can automate their entire end of production line where labelling plays a significant part of the manufacturing.

The Static Weigh Price Labeller (WPL-S) will also be available to view at the show for end of line production.
