Bringing flexible multi-head weighing to Australia


As an agent for Bilwinco, Select Equip has seen first-hand the response to the company’s multi-head weighing technology.

As a respected worldwide company, Bilwinco prides itself on the ability to design multi-head weighing solutions that meet Australia’s specific needs by combining existing technologies and machines in new and innovative ways.

Bilwinco has built a reputation for its ability to design custom solutions to meet the specific needs of clients by combining existing, and proven, technologies and machines with innovative processes.

By completely rethinking the way they handle customers products, from the product infeed over the centre cone and into the individual weigher heads, they have accomplished nothing less than a performance leap in this crucial area.

The vibrator technology can be set to move almost any product carefully and efficiently, including difficult products such as wet, sticky/greasy and fragile products.

With less giveaway – direct weighing ensures 20 to 30 per cent less giveaway compared to traditional weighers and with higher constant throughput and superb vibration technology, it has allowed Bilwinco to keep productivity high and the ability to handle product no-one else can.

High spee and high accuracy start with the ability to transport the product perfectly.

Bilwinco’s machines start out with basic default settings, but within few seconds the control has optimised the speed and performance automatically, which makes the job for the operator easy and the production managers happy.

It is a skill Bilwinco has been known for since 1955. Every machine leaving the factory has gone through a custom and product dependent routine, securing ideal amplitude and frequency for the specific product and project requirements.

“With our partnership with Bilwinco, the number one priority is making life easier for our customers,” said Select Equip’s sales director James White.

“From Bilwinco’s design, pre-test and engineering and Select Equip’s installation, commissioning, and service, it’s a partnership that our customers benefit from and with the lowest cost of ownership on the market, it makes Bilwinco a standout in the Australian market.”


Bilwinco provides semi or fully automatic units and complete solutions covering feeding, multihead weighing, filling, portioning, positioning, and packaging, traceability, data management and local quality service and support through Select Equip.

For example, the multihead weighing programme can cover portion sizes from 10 grams to 25 kilograms, along with weighing capacities of up to 300 portions per minute.

Knowing that weighing needs to be flexible, because of the differences in products, Bilwinco has divided its weighers into two groups, one for wet groups and one for dry. This move is designed to enhance performance in a cost-effective way.

In terms of packaging technology, Bilwinco offers complete, and custom built, solutions designed to make a business more profitable and efficient.
