Exact 100, the best citrus weigher in the world

Exact 100, the best citrus weigher in the world

GIRÓ launched the new citrus weigher Exact 100 in late 2016. A machine with an innovative design appointed to be the best citrus weigher manufactured ever.

Giró´s engineering team invested more than 5 years of research and development to achieve an outstanding product which will become a breakthrough in the fruit processing business.

Exact 100 is a high productivity and extremely accurate dynamic weigher. A new and smart mechanical driving system together with a sophisticated algorithm are responsible to achieve the better bucket feeding according to the fruit caliber and target weight. A well-balanced bucket feeding is very important to have the proper combinational possibilities to find the target weight.

An innovative system based on robotic fingers gives the right and precise dose of fruit to each bucket. This bucket feeding can be done at high speed allowing to fill up to 48 pieces per second in the 8 buckets.

The high capacity buckets are driven through different carousels with a precise continuous movement. The completely new driving system is smooth and free of undesired vibrations.

Also, a unique design of the load cells system does the weight measurement achieving an accuracy of half gram per bucket, an unprecedented milestone in weighing fruit.

Thanks to this set of new developments (do not forget this machine has 6 different patents protecting different technological improvements) it's possible to achieve a high accuracy of 10 grams per dump at high output of 100 bpm of 1 kg.

Exact 100 is a very versatile machine because it has 4 bidirectional output belts that enable to feed a multitude of packaging machine. An optimal configuration is to install four Girbagger machines or in a multi-format implementation, can feed 3 GirBagger and 2 clipping machines like CA-9s or CA-10.
