To ensure that every loaf on the supermarket shelf is the right weight, each individual loaf is weighed directly after leaving the oven and checked on a platform scale equipped with a Siwarex WL260 load cell, which is connected to a Siwarex WP231 weighing module.
The new weighing technology is linked into the company’s control system, feeding the weighing results directly back into the baking plant.
As the new platform scale is significantly smaller than the old mechanical model, there was space to install a second scale featuring Siwarex technology. The new maintenance-free weighing technology makes for more precise, faster weighing of loaves, giving the bakery a 30 percent boost in production.
