Yamato's broad portfolio of multihead weighers offers excellent solutions for the weighing and packaging of nuts & dried fruits, cereals and snacks

The machines for these applications combine the ambitious goals of our R&D team with the invaluable experience gathered over the years by our competent technicians.

At Yamato Scale, you will be sure to find THE multihead weigher for your production. The selection ranges from the simple solutions for a reduced budget to the high end machines for complex applications – all equipped with the latest state of the art technology.

Each product has its own characteristics and composition. As you know, dried fruits tend to be very sticky, snacks and nuts are very delicate and prone to break, while cereals cause substantial dust. The weighing and packaging of these products represents a definite challenge, even more so once you start combining these products.
