Beltweigh XS
Hi-Speed Checkweighers

A checkweigher can be used to weigh almost any item produced on a production line ranging in weight from below one gram to several hundred kilograms.  Below are a few examples of items which organizations weigh on checkweighers:

  • Raw or unwrapped food products prior to the packaging process
  • Pre-packed food products such as cans, glasses, wrapped products, trays and other food packaging
  • Boxes, cartons or tubs of products to determine if papers, components, instructions or other items are missing
  • Weight-based counting of contents in bottles, bags, packaged parts, cases of batteries, diapers or drink bottles in a case
  • Checking volume or density of a mixture, such as bread, yogurt, or volatile products such as airbag charges
  • Weighing items of varying weights for future reference or billing for a warehouse or delivery service
  • Checking for missing leaflets or instructions, blister packs of products or single tablets and capsules

JLS Automation Huge Hit at PACKEX Toronto!


JLS | Osprey Robotic Case Packing
JLS | Osprey Robotic Case Packing
MD Packaging showcased the JLS Osprey Case Packer at PACKEX Toronto earlier this month.  It was received so well at the show, we thought we would highlight it again!

JLS designs customer specific, robotic based systems for primary and secondary packaging applications.  Their understanding of the constantly changing demands on your packaging operation stimulated their "Design for Agility" philosophy.  This awareness yields systems that provide broader product and packaging style capability and greater suitability to frequent changeovers with minimum downtime.  These benefits can't be found in traditional "hard" automation. 


The JLS Osprey is an automatic case loading technology that fits into the limited floorspace at the discharge of your primary packaging machinery, can survive in a high sanitation environment and be agile enough to accommodate frequent changeovers.
