In Motion Scales for Carton and Box Weighing
Conveyor scales or in-motion scales are scales that can weigh a carton, package or box while it is moving along on a conveyor belt. Typically this would be a scale with a motorized conveyor mount on the weigh bed platform. These conveyor scales are fully system integratable and are available in various lengths and widths to suit applications. They are legal for trade and constructed with stainless steel or mild steel.

Model: ISI-LLWW-CS. (LL=length & WW=width of scale bed)
Interweigh's carton or conveyor belt scales are designed to capture the weight of a carton or package as it moves along the scale's conveyor. The carton passes through a photo-sensor which triggers the weighing process. The weight is displayed on the scale's digital indicator, which can transmit the weight via RS-232 or Ethernet to the end-user.
Interweigh has been an in-motion scale technology leader in Canada by establishing new thresholds for speed, accuracy and material handling on its line of in-motion conveyor scales. Since 1994 Interweigh has been the industry leader in carton scale technology currently offering speeds up to 350 fpm and a potential throughput of 3500 PPH. Interweigh has integrated this technology into a data capture system to offer its clients a turn-key project that may include barcode and dimension data and/or inventory and production control.
Conveyor scales also called box weighing scales, or even weigh-in-motion scales, dynamically weigh items (typically cardboard packages or shipping cartons) as they pass along the scale's conveyor belt, which is part of the weigh-bed. The scale's length (24" to 72") and width (12" to 24") are determined based on the maximum size of the packages and desired throughput.
