Information

MCheck 2

MCheck 2 combines high levels of accuracy with flexibility and capacity, making it the ideal choice for any food processing company – both in wet and dry production environments and end-of-line applications.

Whether you need a process-weigher for monitoring and optimizing the accuracy of the process equipment in your factory, or a checkweigher to ensure compliance with weight legislation, MCheck 2 will meet your requirements.

Compliance with weight legislation

MCheck 2 weighs and checks a wide variety of indexed packs or pieces in a continuous flow against predetermined limits. It prevents underweight and/or overweight packages and rejects ‘out of spec’ packs while ensuring compliance with weight legislation for sealed packs.

Line optimization

MCheck 2 can weigh before and after a process for yield calculation and check the number of items in a package based on weight. The machine can also feed information forward to a dosing system to ensure accurate package weights.

Food safety and hygiene

MCheck 2 features a range of metal detection and reject options which remove off weight and metal contaminated packs from the product flow. Single and twin reject confirmation, combined with lockable reject bins, ensures food safety and quality control.

Full washdown

The MCheck 2 can withstand an intense high-pressure washdown to IP69 standards, thanks to its sturdy and easy to clean design.

  • Available in different modular configurations
  • An optional trend light indicator
  • Optional single and multi-frequency metal detection
  • A choice of single pusher, flipper, twin reverse flipper or drop flap reject 
  • Fully approved remote access and display option

Benefits of Innova for checkweighers

  • Real-time monitoring and control reduces giveaway
  • Data collection gives insight to optimize processing
  • Detailed e-weighing reports easily fulfil legal requirements
  • Integration with full line optimizes OEE

Monitor and control processing

The Innova module for Checkweighers lets you monitor and control your processing in real time. The software provides live dashboards showing data for key performance indicators such as giveaway and weight distribution, giving you a clear overview of actual production. Alarms can be set up to highlight if production deviates from specifications so that you can take immediate corrective action.

Get operational insight 

Historical data on all throughput is collected and stored in the Innova database. Standard reports can then be created giving you an insight into operational performance including weight distribution and giveaway for items or packs, and on the accepted and rejected number of products due to over/under weight. The software can also generate detailed e-weighing reports, which ensure you comply with average weight legislation.

Connect your business 

Innova software can be implemented stand-alone with your MCheck2 Checkweigher or it can be integrated with other Marel processing equipment across a full-line solution. This gives you central control over production, leading to optimized processing and complete traceability. Remote program management allows you to configure product parameters such as weight limits and batch sizes from a central location.
