MECHANICAL ENGINEERING HERITAGE NO.89
Multihead Weigher ACW-M-1
This machine, manufactured by Ishida Scales Mfg. Co., Ltd. (currently Ishida Co., Ltd.) in 1973, combines green peppers of different sizes and sorts them into groups of a certain weight. Green peppers that are continuously loaded are first delivered via the rotating disk, vibrator and linkage mechanism, and then weighed one by one. The central processing unit selects a combination of pieces whose weight is closest to the designated combined weight. The machine was capable of sorting 30 combinations per minute with an accuracy of 150±2 g without damaging them. The technology is used not only in the food industry, but also widely in various industries.
