The TG9 Tray Grader grades trays by fixed count, fixed weight or a combination of both into boxes with totalized labels.
Fixed count mode
In fixed count grading mode, the channels are filled according to a set piece count. When the target count has been reached, the next channel starts filling and the operator can accept the batch and print a label for the batch. Alternatively, the operator can cancel the batch and utilize the reorder facility if needed.
Fixed weight mode
In fixed weight grading mode, a weigh price labeler – or another input device like a barcode scanner – captures and transmits weight, price and pack information to the grader. The TD9 then diverts each pack, according to its weight, into either one of its channels. Each channel collates the packs to reach the optimized target box weight.
Fixed count and weight
The TG9 allocates a set number of packs to each channel while selecting the channels according to weight to achieve the optimized target box weights. If a pack does not fit the requirement of any of the channels, it is diverted to the optional reject lane.

The Innova Pack to Order software tracks all pack and batch information. The system enables users to design pack, pallet and order labels using a visual label designer and attach individual or composite database fields to label fields.
A reorder functionality ensures that non-conforming or damaged packs can be quickly and easily removed from a batch. The removed pack is diverted automatically from the product flow thus eliminating batch rework. Innova also tracks independent totals at box, pallet and job level, including item, weight and price. Innova or another production management system registers and prints these totals.
All labels can be reprinted on the production floor or from the desktop GUI, while the system also supports the printing of reports instead of labels when, for example, an order is completed.
