Introduced at the 2012 PACK EXPO show, the FAS SPrint Revolution bagger teams up with a horizontal combination scale to efficiently package foods sold in fixed-weight packs, such as grapes, shrimp, vegetables and beef jerky. The semi-automatic system positions six Yamato Dataweigh TSDW-205W weigh scales on each side of a central conveyor for a total of 12. One or two operators manually place products onto the scales and the system automatically calculates the best combination of products to hit the target weight. These products drop onto the central conveyor and are then loaded into the bagger. The conveyor is positioned such that product has a short drop into the bag, allowing the system to handle fragile products.
