Case Scales - Robust & Reliable 

Case scales are single belt in-motion checkweighers designed for weighing large packages such as boxes, cartons, cases, bags, or sacks. The robust frame and conveyor construction withstands the impact of heavy packages, so this system is ideal for tough environments. Optional stainless steel construction and hazardous area versions are also available. Convenient access to all major components for easy inspection, cleaning and maintenance is provided while the HI-SPEED belt design makes tracking, tensioning and change out fast and simple.  Combined with our award winning X-Series controls, this system is an unbeatable combination. The XE with its intuitive touch screen display makes line monitoring and changeovers fast and simple. The optional XS with its large 15" dashboard style display presents all relevant information for "at a glance" monitoring.


An extensive array of accessories including infeed and discharge conveyors, rejecters, sortation, metal detectors, sensors for open flaps or askew packages, bar code or RFID readers can be provided to complete the system.  Stand-alone rejecters or rejecter-conveyor assemblies are available. When a rejecter assembly is purchased, a shield guard is integrated with the assembly to minimize personal risk. Depending on your application the rejecter assembly and shield guard could be attached to the same base as the conveyor.  For soft sortation or high rates and weights, HI-SPEED offers the Intralox ARB (Activated Roller Belt) solution.



The ball-and-socket foot with a threaded adjustment of � 2" (50mm) means a case scale will fit right into a production line and allows for smooth product transfers.  Other features include:

  • Belt Width - 12, 18, 24, 30 inches wide
  • Belt Material - Seamless Habasit black for Mild Steel, USDA white for washdown
  • Belt Lengths - from 21 up to 72 inches
  • Construction - powder-coated mild steel for dry applications or stainless steel for washdown
  • Control Platforms - XE for simpler applications with light, user interaction or 15" XS for operations with more user involvement or a need for an IP69K screen
  • Rejecters - heavy duty pusher, drop-through, lift up or signals to customer devices
  • Product Inspection - metal detection, flap detection, bar code reading
  • Process Verification - reject verification, acceptable package verification, lane full, reject area full, package orientation, low pressure condition, successive errors
