Checkweighers in quality assurance

Whether a business operates in the food, pharmaceutical or cosmetic production industries, for products to remain within specification every time, checkweighers need to be used. Typically they are installed at the end of the production line often integrated with x-ray or metal detectors. For combined solutions see integrated machines.

Checkweighers are primarily used for checking if package product is within its target weight. This allows for the following benefits:

  • Complying with regulations.
  • Avoiding costly fines.
  • Reduce material use and false rejects.
  • Save on labor costs.
  • Maintain brand identity.
  • Generally improve the production process by increasing efficiency and lowering TCO.

Consider that there are alternative uses of checkweighers such as detecting missing pieces of a kit.
