1. What is Checkweigher?
A checkweigher is a high-precision weight measuring instrument. It is designed to check the weight of individual products during the manufacturing process on production lines.
Checkweighers are predominatly used as part of a manufacturing quality control programme. Their weighing results are required to ensure that manufacturing sites comply with local packaging laws and regulations during production.
A checkweigher ensures that every product leaving a production line is the right weight. They are key to ensuring manufacturers deliver quality products that promote high levels of customer satisfaction. Selling underweight products can result in companies being fined or subject to other penalties. Overweight products generate unnecessary and expensive product giveaway. Checkweighers can be used in near to all industries as part of an effective quality assurance system. These include: Food, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics Beverages, Transport/logistics, Chemicals, Automotive, Metal manufacture and fabrication industries, etc.
2. What are the differences between static and dynamic checkweighers?
The main differences between static and dynamic checkweighers are:
a. Static checkweighers measure the weight of products that stand still. Dynamic checkweighers weigh products in motion.
b. Static checkweighers are used for manual weighing of products or for sample spot-checking. Dynamic checkweighers automatically check 100 % of the products produced
c. Static checkweighing is a labour intensive process. It requires manual product weighing, recording of the result and then product removal for the next weighing procedure. Dynamic checkweighing is entirely automatic. Products are weighed as they pass along a production line, with off-weight products rejected from the production line by automated removal devices such as pneumatic pusher arms or air-jets.
3. Reasons for a Checkweigher in Your Production?
Checkweighers have long been a key element of production operations, as they are capable of far more than just weighing, and can actually optimise your whole production process. Benefits of a checkweigher include:
1). avoid costly fines with 100% weight inspection
2). keep fillers operating in synchronisation
3.) save material, so as to produce more products and profits
4). mprove production processes and equipment efficiency
5). save labor and personnel costs
6). reduce false rejects and rework
7). maintain the identity of your brand
