These in-motion devices can provide real-time production data to help meet regulatory requirements while reducing waste and improving productivity.
High-speed, in-motion checkweighing often is a critical part of a manufacturer’s overall quality control and consumer safety process. Checkweighing is used not only for verifying product weight but also establishing correct multi-piece packages, such as a bag of fasteners, chargers and cords, or even the presence of an instruction pack.
Using checkweighing for inspection also helps manufacturers meet regulatory requirements, and prevent underweight or overweight products from reaching consumers. In certain industries, checkweighing can help meet FDA regulations.
For example, in the pharmaceutical industry, checkweighers can help verify and comply that the correct number of pills are in a container.
In addition, checkweighers that offer smart manufacturing capabilities provide further insight into plant operations. With real-time data, enterprise-level stakeholders gain further information about machine and production performance, maintenance issues, product quality and data for regulatory reports.
To determine if your operations can benefit from a checkweighing device, consider several regulatory guidelines and consumer safety concerns, checkweighing applications per industry, and production visibility.
