Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Checkweigher Rapid Availability Program
Food Processors Can Now Take Delivery in About Four Weeks
Thermo Fisher developed the rapid delivery program to address a variety of time-critical issues ranging from crisis response for recalls to production disruptions due to equipment failure. Manufacturers can order checkweighers from either the Thermo Scientific VersaWeigh or Versa GP line, depending on where their production facility is located.
The VersaWeigh and Versa GP checkweighers lines, which feature a large variety of models, sizes and options, are known worldwide for their proprietary touch screen controls, ease-of-use and reliability.
Until now, food processors facing immediate production issues have been forced to either find a used checkweigher or borrow one from a different manufacturing line or facility. The rapid availability program lets food processing facilities take delivery of a configured checkweigher in approximately four weeks instead of the eight to twelve weeks common industry-wide.
"Food processors do not have the luxury of waiting more than a month to receive equipment to address their checkweighing issue. When a problem presents itself, it is critical that a solution be found immediately. This is why we have expanded the YES! program to include checkweighers," explained Volkert Jan Hage, product manager, checkweighers, Thermo Fisher.
In addition to addressing crisis issues, the YES! rapid availability program helps minimize the impact of production line shutdowns or startup delays due to checkweigher supply issues.
The VersaWeigh is available in 12 different configurations and belt widths ranging from 100mm to 400mm. The Versa GP is available in four configurations (including a pharmaceutical model) in belt widths up to 200mm.
