Here are five benefits of using a Checkweigh Scale.

1. Enhances Accuracy and Reduces Product Giveaway

The main benefit of using a Checkweigher scale is savings. The ability to produce a product at an accurate weight leads to bottom line savings because materials are not wasted and processes do not need to be repeated. In many cases these weighments are so critical, that they determine whether a plant is profitable or not.

For example, a mushroom grower used a Checkweigher to eliminate waste during packing. By reducing over packing, they were able to increase productivity by 5,000 lbs. a day and save $39,600 over the course of a year.

2. Ensure Product Quality

The weight of a product is one of the vital benchmarks that is measured during the quality control process, whether it is for a consumable good or an automotive part. Being able to make an accurate, fast measurement that is sent to a PC for statistical analysis is one of the key functions of quality control.

3. Meet Regulatory Requirements

Using a Checkweigher scale helps to guarantee accuracy in weight. This is especially important for companies who sell products at a retail level where there is a product weight shown on the package. Each state in America has a different regulatory agency which is responsible for testing the weights of products. If products are over or underweight, the agency can enforce significant fines on the producer. Measuring throughout the manufacturing process is a great way to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

4. Provide Accurate Data to Better Manage a Process

A Portion control scale can be an important part of the quality control process. Weighing ingredients, following a formula, and weighing the finished product gives management the opportunity to check all aspects of the production process. They can identify which parts are running well and which need improvement.

5. Track Productivity

Some systems can also track an operator’s output. This provides management with information on who measured, how long it took, when they started, and when they finished measuring. The systems provide actionable data and information which allows businesses to improve productivity and their processes.
