Rice Lake to Scale Up Weighing Solutions at IPPE
Rice Lake Weighing Systems will promote a complete line of weighing solutions for the poultry, feed and meat technology industry at the January 31-February 2 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta. Visitors to Booth 5653 in Hall B of the Georgia World Congress Center will see virtual reality demonstrations of the company’s new 1280 Enterprise series programmable weight indicator/controller, RoughDeck QF washdown floor scale, and MotoWeigh IMW inmotion checkweigher.
Other products in the spotlight will include bench scales, suspended weighing systems, static checkweighers, metal detection equipment and precision solutions such as balances and calibration weights.
Rice Lake’s 1280 Enterprise programmable weight indicator/controller is built to deliver uncompromising speed for today’s operations and expansive options for tomorrow’s requirements. By incorporating a durable touchscreen with a seven-inch color LCD display and a highly customizable graphical user interface, operators can control functions with real-time visibility and create an interface designed for specific processes. Onboard capabilities include a built-in web server, Ethernet TCP/IP, Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth® and RS-232/485.
The RoughDeck QC-X floor scale has been engineered to safeguard against microscopic bacteria and contaminants in food processing, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. The base is made of solid stainless steel vertical plates and the top plate opens 75 degrees, the widest in the industry for optimal cleaning. This design also includes continuous welds and tool-less top plate locks, ensuring that no unseen contaminants are left behind after the washdown process.
IPPE attendees can also take an in-depth look at Rice Lake’s in-motion checkweighing and metal detection equipment through a virtual reality demo. Using Google Cardboard, visitors will experience a product video demonstration in an entirely new way, with 360-degree interactivity.
