Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced an upgraded checkweigher product line to improve accuracy and reliability and decrease maintenance for food, pharmaceutical, and personal care companies that package products in pouches, bags, and cartons.

The line is available in two models: the fixed-height Thermo Scientific Global VersaWeigh and the cantilevered Global Versa GP, which allows height adjustment.The Global VersaWeigh is suitable for products up to 10 kg, while the Global Versa GP model targets up to 3 kg. The company’s global manufacturing and service footprint facilitates international equipment availability and support.
The Versa checkweighers are engineered for wet or dry environments, are easy to clean, and can handle a wide range of package sizes. Large, easy-to-read, color touchscreen displays and intuitive design make the units simple to operate.
