Quantum Checkweigher

Technology

The Quantum Checkweigher is our standard machine for high speed weighing of cans. The Quantum accommodates speeds up to 600 cans per minute without the need for feed screws or accelerator tables. Five zone weight controls is standard as well as the use of dual load cells for greater accuracy. The rigid frame and mass of the machine increases dampening and decreases vibration to eliminate potential weight errors that can occur at high speeds. The Quantum adjusts quickly for different can sizes. Printable Quantum Checkweigher Brochure
