Yamato Scale Dataweigh is joining automatic packaging machinery supplier Gainsborough Engineering for a week-long open house event starting on Monday 24 April.

Live demonstrations will show Yamato’s Omega 14-head combined with Gainsborough Engineering’s new GHP170 stand-up pouch machine, which forms pouches straight from a reel of film. Visitors to the event, hosted by Gainsborough Engineering at its Lincolnshire premises, can see the versatile combination of weigher and pouch machine in operation.

The Dataweigh Omega series multihead weigher is easy to operate, eco-friendly, easy to clean, waterproof and easy to maintain. It can weigh products up to 500 g in weight and with pack volumes up to 1 litre with a speed of 210 weighments per minute.

To demonstrate the versatility of the combination visitors are encouraged to let the organisers know if they would like to see a specific product go through the machine. The sales and technical team will be on hand to answer any questions.

In addition to the new GHP170 stand-up pouch machine Gainsborough Engineering will also be demonstrating its stainless-steel form, fill and seal machine close-coupled to Yamato’s Alpha stainless steel 10-head weigher.

“We are delighted to once again join our friends at Gainsborough Engineering to demonstrate Yamato’s versatile automatic weighing solutions. We are looking forward to welcoming new and existing customers and showing them how Yamato’s multihead weighers work with pouch machines and form, fill and seal machines,” said Andrea Spencer, commercial operations manager for Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK.
