Agribusiness industry

The agribusiness industry, in covering a wide range of activities relating to the business of agriculture, has great demand for technology that facilitates filling, weighing and inspection of materials and products – technology that Minebea Intec supplies. Bulk materials such as fertilizers, feedstuffs and food products must be inspected, weighed, packaged and delivered.

Minebea Intec’s extensive range of weighing and foreign body inspection products, both automated and manual, has a high-quality solution for every such need. Our truck scale solutions, silo scales and other bench and floor scales offer the robustness needed for weighing bulk materials, and resilient dosing and sorting solutions are also available. All solutions can be supplied for use in outdoor environments, with suitable IP and lightening protection and with high resistance to moisture, corrosion, dust and temperature variations.
