Filling a package is done by adding goods to a package. PENKO offers various solutions which enable particularly fast and precise filling and packaging in the industrial production process. The method used for filling a package depends
on the type of product and the packaging required for that product. Solids are normally packed in sacks and boxes and filled on weight/mass, whereas liquids are packed in bottles, barrels or cans and filled on volume and then checked on
weight to ensure they are filled with the correct volume. The filling process itself can be carried out both manually and automatically.
Weighing on mass has the advantage that the weight remains correct, regardless of external influences such as aeration and product temperature. PENKO’s fast and accurate weighing capability will reduce the time spent for filling on your process
line to the necessary minimum. It is also possible to set tighter tolerance limits which ensures correct filling and precise dosing.
As filling processes are typically done in a matter of seconds opposed to minutes, fast and precise measurement becomes important. Dosing too much may result in profit loss and product spillage, dosing too little results in unhappy customers.
PENKO’s filling ranges are specifically focused to solve this problem. State-of-the art filtering processes can easily cushion the external influences, without slowing down the weighing speed or affecting the accuracy. Users can be sure that
packages are rapidly filled within tolerance.
All PENKO’s Filling ranges offer specialized solutions for filling and packaging applications. PENKO distinguishes between two versions:
At PENKO, we create batching products with a consistent composition and quality, registering the exact amount per component added to the batch allows for repetition. Batching is the process of adding components together in a specific order to create a
product. The amount of product that is created in one full ‘components adding’ session is called a batch. The components can be added automatically, manually or a mixture of both options, and the amount can be either very large or very
small. The batching process is used in filling, dosing and mixing applications.
Registration can be done by weighing the components. When all components dose into the same weighing hopper and the weights are within the maximum weighing capacity of the hopper, one weighing system can be sufficient. The smallest dosed amount
determines the maximum weighing capacity of the hopper. For example: baking a cake – where the amount of eggs determines the amount of the other ingredients added.
PENKO’s weighing equipment can be used for all possible adding actions; automatically or manually, with a large amount or small amount. It allows for product quality enhancement by creating a repeatable consistency and can also help to minimize
product spillage and save money. This can especially be the case when precision measurement equipment is used. With precision measurement the weight determination is done quicker, which leads to a smaller weight deviation and more accurate
determinations. Using precision measurement equipment can further increase the profitability of a batching system.
PENKO’s weighing products are designed with the core values of precision weighing, measuring swiftness and quick signal stability; ensuring fast, reliable and accurate measurements. With our specialized functionalities for filling, dosing
and mixing, we offer the possibility to incorporate high speed niche weighing technology into production lines.
Our powerful Omega controller is designed to control multiple parallel processes and is therefore very suitable for batching processes. Its high-speed weighing cards, with separate processing capability, are ideal for precision measurement.
All PENKO's Filling ranges offer specialized solutions for filling applications.
PENKO has developed check weighing solutions which provide fast and precise control in the i.p.v. industrial production process. As the name suggests, check weighers are used to check the weight of goods. They are automated systems
that check the products for internal control as well as for trade. PENKO’s high weighing accuracy allows for a reduction of product spillage which can be accomplished by setting tighter tolerance bands.
Both types of check weighing – category Y systems and category X systems can be used in a static as well as a dynamic environment. PENKO’s check weighing range is specifically focused to solve the problem that dynamic environments have in
calculating exact weight measurements due to goods being in motion. Our state-of-the art filtering processes can easily cushion the external influences, without slowing down the weighing speed or affecting the accuracy. Users can be sure
that only the desired mass will be achieved in the production process.

For processes that require a continuous feed of material, Loss-In-Weight (LIW) systems are used as well as belt weighing. PENKO offers continuous weighing solutions for applications which enable precise control of their flow. The measuring
method corrects flow inconstancies giving the best flow regulation possible. The PENKO approach ensures a continuous and precise flow which focuses on precise product dosing and consistent product quality.
A unique feature of PENKO’s continuous weighing solution is the possibility to store multiple components with its own specific weight and settings. The advantage of this recipe bank is that switching between components take far less time and
the chance of making errors will be significantly reduced. As a result of that the production capacity will increase and the product spillage will reduce. PENKO’s state-of-the art filtering processes can easily cushion the external influences,
without slowing down the weighing speed or effecting the accuracy. Users can be sure that a precise flow will be used in the on-going production process.
PENKO’s FLEX Loss-In-Weight range is developed for accurately measuring the loss in weight over a certain period of time (flow). It is designed to automatically switch during filling from gravimetric to volumetric filling, ensuring a continuous

PENKO offers a variety of force measurement tools which are bi-directional and can be used for both tension as well as compression measurements. Force measurement is the quantifying of a certain load in Newton, independent of gravity.
Our instruments measure at high speed (1600s/s) with a high internal resolution (24bits), which enables them to make extremely accurate measurements. The high measuring speed of PENKO’s force measurement tools also have the advantage of
reacting within milliseconds to protect your machine from overloads.
The PENKO1020 FMD has a trend indication readout value (TIR) function. This function shows the decrease or increase (slope) of the force per unit of time and can be used to monitor the force introduction for ropes, chains or concrete elements.
The FLEX Force series don’t contain TIR functionality, but allow for storing 2 force ranges. Due to the possession of two separate amplifiers, this feature comes out best using the FLEX Force 2channel controller. Storing 2 force ranges has
the advantage that it increases the measuring range of the force measurement itself. It can also be used when you’re testing different sizes of materials, reducing the need to reprogram the measuring machine.

Accurately weighing produce on board a sea-going fishing vessel is no easy task. PENKO Engineering developed a weighing system to compensate for external forces such as the waves causing the ship to pitch and roll or the motors, and hoists etc. creating
a multitude of vibrations to the internal harmonics. PENKO’s Motion Compensated Weighing system offers clever digital filtering as well as unparalleled high measuring speed and high internal resolution.
Reliable weighing data from PENKO’s equipment allows for accurate batch weighing of the catches at sea. In practice, this ensures that the batches are prepared with an exceptionally high accuracy and there is less chance of overfilling with
excess product. This, in turn, saves freezing capacity and related costs as well as facilitating a more sustainable environment.
