The Model EW-8 is Alpha Checkweigher’s economical solution for users and applications that may be new or unfamiliar with the advantages of checkweighing on new or existing filling, feeding, inspection, or other packaging lines. Based on the field-proven line of Alpha Checkweighers, the EW-8 offers the same versatility and reliability as other Alpha models.
The EW-8 consists of a sturdy, tubular frame with a 5” U-channel main support plate that serves as a mounting location for the three belt-driven conveyors and the digital strain gage loadcell. A slope front control console houses the electronics and the color touch screen Human Machine Interface (HMI.) Reject options include Air Blast, Pusher, or Bopper to remove unacceptable weight packages from production.
The EW-8 is operated and controlled from a series of full color, easy to read and use screens on the front mounted touch screen panel. Dedicated screens are provided for all major functions and operations for testing, set up, calibrating, and operating the checkweigher.
