ECONUS® is the newest and youngest member of the Minebea checkweigher family. Designed especially for applications such as completeness checks or control of filling systems. Reliability, user friendliness and high accuracy makes the ECONUS® the perfect choice for a wide range of industries. Today’s demands on control a checkweigher are high and diverse. They reach fromprecise measuring at high speeds to reliability and ease of cleaning.Guarantees toprovide accurate and reliableweight measurements. This highly precise weighing performance is supported by a user-friendly menu system, and an ability to setup and optimize the system quickly by using theintegrated learning mode. Made from the highest quality stainless steel, andwith an easy to remove transport belt the ECONUS® can withstand any industry application easy requiring precision and robustness the ECONUS® is the best choice.

Design of Checkweigher

The Checkweigher series ECONUS® includes the following sub-units:

  1. Weigher Frame
  2. Control Cabinet With Electronic Control System
  3. Load Cell
  4. Transport System
  5. Rejection Device or Sorting Output (Option)


The construction of the weighing and transportation system allows easy maintenance and cleaning. The quick release belt device allows belt changes to be made incredibly fast, helping to minimizedowntime.

A protection class of IP54 (IP65 optional) allows for optimal cleaning.


The ECONUS® convinces the customers by using high qualitymaterials and latest technology features as well as by its attractive price. It is the ideal entry-level solution for many process lines.


The ECONUS® can be configured to any of your Individual requirements. It’soffers include a wide range of weight capacities and a variety of different mechanised and electrical options.

Filling Process Optimisation

All weight deviations are reported by both visual and audible alarms. This functionality makes sure that operators can take corrective measures immediately. Additionally, detailed statistics in relation to the production process are automatically generated throughout the process. The ECONUS® is also equipped with trend control, a special feature to automatically optimise the filling process.


The ECONUS® isfully equipped withextensive data functionalities, including remote.

Weigher frame

Easy to clean open structure stainless steel frame carrying the weighing and conveying system. Adjustable feet allows precise height adjustment.

Control cabinet

Stainless steel control cabinet with electronic control system, housing with IP 54 protection(Optional IP65). Inside are the power supply and motor control. For processes requiring optical control a signal can be installed as an optional accessory.

Electronic control system

The master switch, control and display elements are installed for good accessibility. The high-contrast,easily legible colour graphics display shows all the vital production data without interruption.

Self-explanatory display dialogues, five contextdependent function keys (soft keys) and an alphanumeric keypad with “ABC” input enable quick and easy operation. A userprogrammable hot key (joker key)

makes it possible to directly access user-defined functions. Automatic zeroing takes place during production intervals. The product distance can be continuously monitored in the background (option).

Transport system

The conveyor consists of anodisedaluminium sections with a quickrelease belt detensioning mechanism. Belt pulleys and drive rollers are made of hard coated aluminium, d 30 mm.

The quick-release belt mechanism and removable transport systems makes it interface to replace belts and | or the whole transport system. The infeed, weighing and outfeed belts are driven by maintenance-free and precisely balanced 24V EC geared motors, propelled by driving belts.

Reject and sorting devices (Option)

Either an air blower or pusher can be mounted on the out-feed | discharge belt to reject products with a weight outside the control limits. The choice of reject | sorting mechanism is dependent upon the type of product, throughput-rate and the particular application.

Technology The conveyor belt consists of aluminum segments and a quick belt release mechanism. In combination with removable transport systems, this mechanism enables easy replacement of the transport belts as well as the entire transport system itself. The transport belts are driven by belt transmission via precise 24 V EC motors. Quick and thorough cleaning is guaranteed due to its stainless steel design and easy-to-operate belt tensioning mechanism. The bright LCD color graphic display comes with sophisticated functions: among others, a trend controller, completeness check and program-controlled belt speed with an optimized setting for each product. All important production data are shown at one glance on the display.

Self-explanatory display dialogs, five context-dependent function keys (soft keys) and an alphanumeric keypad all ensure quick and easy operation. A programmable hot key (joker key) is available for direct access to user-defined functions. Automatic zeroing takes place during production intervals. As an option, product distance can also be constantly monitored in the background. All weighing parameters can be optimized via the learning mode for the best-possible weighing results for all products. In summary, the Econus® gives your profile an outstanding price/performance ratio. Therefore, it is an ideal module that can be seamlessly integrated into your production line.
