This is a 14 scale multihead weigher that discharges washed potatoes on two discharge belts that feed the packaging machines.
This location is in South Africa where the potatoes are packed in paper bags with a small opening.
The challenge is to get 7 or 10 kg potatoes at a supreme accuracy and speed in to the opening of a relatively small paper bag.
The weigher discharges the potatoes in a dual aperture speed buffer. This speed buffer then discharges on one of the two conveyor belts that feed the bagging machines.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
