WIPOTEC-OCS, weighing and X-Ray scanning equipment, says its checkweighers have become the workhorse of the meat packaging industry, displaying its HC-M-WD-MDi Checkweigher at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), in Atlanta (January 28-30).

As well as its checkweighers the company will debut the latest addition to its SC family of X-Ray inspection scanners including its SC-2000 Mini X-Ray Scanner, which can inspect up to 400 products per minute. 


“Meat and poultry processors need inspection machines that are exceptionally precise and extraordinarily efficient,” said Jim Renehan, senior marketing manager, WIPOTEC-OCS. 

“Our scanners and checkweighers have become mainstays at meat and poultry processing plants thanks to their accuracy, repeatability and reliability. We look forward to showcasing our latest lineup at IPPE 2020 in Atlanta.” 

The SC-2000 Mini X-Ray scanner has an integrated conveyor with discharge units and a switch cabinet which can be configured separately from the measuring head. It can be easily integrated into existing production lines. 

Also at IPPE, WIPOTEC-OCS will premiere a washdown system for its signature SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner. 

The bulk flow model meets protection class IP69K, making it suitable for wet environments and other challenging cleaning conditions. 

The module's C-shaped product space, beveled surfaces and stainless steel housing fulfill stringent hygiene requirements. 

Capable of inspecting many tons of bulk meat per hour and offering foreign body detection sensitivity, the SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner is equipped with an HD-TDI camera detector. 

In conjunction with the metal-ceramic tube, it generates high-resolution X-Ray images for the unit’s custom-designed image processing software. 

The scanner’s flexible ejection options ensure accurate separation of bad product while maximizing good product throughput. 

On display will also be WIPOTEC-OCS's 'workhorse' of checkweighers for the meat industry its HC-M-WD-MDi Checkweigher with integrated metal detector. 

Capable of handling up to 250 products per minute, the machine utilizes WIPOTEC’s Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) technology, for short settling times to deliver fast, accurate and repeatable weighing results. 


With its software interface for ease of operation, it claims the model meets all food processing industry requirements including IFS-compliant product control and other HACCP or LMHV/FDA hygiene regulations. 

Located in Lawrenceville, Atlanta, WIPOTEC-OCS headquarters includes a demonstration showroom, customer application engineering labs, a spare parts warehouse, meeting and training rooms.
