Weight and labelling of poultry in boxes

Our solution

The crate weighing system designed by Cooperativa Bilanciai using a Mercury Plus price-weighing and labelling system was introduced and perfectly integrated into the production cycle.

MERCURY PLUS system are identified using a fully automated laser scanner. The weighing system weighs the crates and prints a label complete with its name, weight, lot, farm, date of slaughter etc… in a clear and opportunity coded manner (EAN128, ITF…), which includes the time of packaging as well.

MERCURY PLUS is equipped with an ejection system that ejects faulty crates laterally, sending them to a roller conveyor, where they are later collected by an operator.

MERCURY PLUS is a practical, sturdy system that can support production with peaks of up to 2400 crates/hour. Furthermore, with the aid of a simple Ethernet connection with TCP/IP protocol, it interacts in an extremely efficient manner with the Client’s management system, so that production data can be recovered and the management system can receive new programs. Interaction with the management system can even include simple, efficient programming for individually weighed quantities, within the scope of the rules regulating legal metrology.

The Mercury Plus crate weighing system can be used for demanding operations in difficult environments and has been designed with top quality, oversized, materials, with a generous use of stainless steel and motorised systems designed to work long hours in complete safety. Its tested and reliable arm application system, positions labels both on cardboard and plastic crates, even when these have different heights.

The Mercury Plus Crate Weighing System can also be provided without a scanner and fitted with a keypad with 128 keys, so that the operator can sort arriving products in a simple manner, allowing for great user flexibility in addition to its other features, which have been described above.
