Company Info

Ishida Europe forms part of the global Ishida group which is a world leader in the design, manufacture and installation of complete weighing and packing line solutions.

These solutions range from designing and setting up entire new packing halls to providing a single machine to perform a specific task. Ishida Europe has its headquarters in Birmingham, UK, serving Europe, the Middle East and Africa and has been established in the UK since 1985.

The range includes multiheadweighers, fresh food weighers, snack food bagmakers, checkweighers, x-ray inspection systems, quality control systems, traysealers and the software that integrates them with both Ishida and other manufacturers' equipment.

In addition, Ishida produces the conveyors, tray denesters, gantries and other equipment that enables overall systems to function smoothly and reliably.

Multihead Weighers

Ishida invented the multiheadweigher back in the 1970's and launched it into the food industry across the world. Today, Ishida have an extensive range of multiheadweighers suited to many food and non-food applications. From entry-level to high-specification models, all Ishida's multiheadweighers combine high-speed operation with unparalled accuracy and reliability.

Snack Food Bagmakers

Ishida offers a fully integrated, single-manufacturer multiheadweigher and bagmaker combinations for snacks. Years of experience with both machines have enabled Ishida to optimize the physical and electronic interfaces to enhance speed and reduce weighment spread.


Ishida DACS checkweighers play an important part, all over the world, in ensuring that packs are compliant with the demands of legislation, whether average weight or minimum weight.
The company has been manufacturing checkweighers for many decades, and continues to build all its own load cells to ensure that each weigher meets the stringent accuracy and reliability standards that have become associated with the brand.
All DACS weighers have an integrated remote control unit and printer. A variety of reject devices are available and integrated metal detection is an option.

X-Ray Inspection Systems

Ishida's IX-GA X-Ray Inspection Systems can be used at any stage in your process to accurately detect and locate a wide range of foreign bodies, ranging from bone fragments to hard rubber.
They can also be used to quality control many other parameters, such as the number of pieces in a pack, product thickness and product shape.
Ishida IX-GA systems work with all types of packaging and can even penetrate metal cans and aluminium foil, picking up foreign bodies or particles down to 0.5mm diameter. A special masking feature enables them to ignore specified objects such as metal clips and other packaging items.
In a trial conducted by a major European meat institute, the Ishida system proved more sensitive than those of five other major suppliers.


Ishida’s tray sealers help produce well-presented, clearly and impactfully labelled products for the retail shelf or cabinet.
The revolutionary QX-1100 attains speeds of up to 200 trays per minute, previously only achievable with less adaptable platen-type sealers, but is in fact a rapid tool-change machine, able to support a virtually endless variety of tray designs. The QX-775 is a more conventional but very robust design, also designed for rapid tool changes.
Both machines deliver the attractive and economical 'inside-cut' seal, and are compatible with board, plastic and aluminium trays.
