Easiweigh is an established leading British manufacturer of automatic weighing and counting systems and can offer a solution from a full ‘turn-key' system to small stand alone weighing/counting and depositing systems.
Most of Easiweigh's equipment, about 90%, is used within the food and allied industries for which it has been specifically designed. With its stainless steel construction, and an IP65 rating, their standard equipment is extremely versatile and suitable for both wet and dry environments.
For companies that operate short product runs, the no tools required, strip down design means that a complete change over of contact parts is achievable in under five minutes, resulting in increased levels of production 'up' time, however Easiweigh acknowledge that their standard design is not necessarily appropriate for all applications and in such instances they are willing to consider any suitable application and, where necessary, design and manufacture special purpose machinery to customers individual requirements. Easiweigh are however extremely careful only to undertake projects in which they are confident of their ability to succeed.
This is Easiweigh's 27th year of operation and in addition to their automatic linear weighing & counting systems, they also have check weighing and metal detecting machinery within their product range, capable of handling from less than a gram to 100Kg. It is Easiweigh's firm belief that they offer the best equipment of its type available today and are proud of their reputation for the quality, reliability, performance and value for money of the equipment they supply.
