We know that accurate and repeatable weighing is vital to the success of your business, especially if you’re packaging very expensive bulk materials. Minimizing ‘giveaway’ is important to both our customers and their customers. Underweight bags result in customer end-user dissatisfaction, while overweight ones – directly affect our customers’ profitability. Our service specialists know all about the importance of weigher accuracy. Functionality as well as accuracy is checked and calibrated — our experience shows this pays off.
Typically, all weighers are checked statically and dynamically, and after calibration they are rechecked for repeatability. This includes: checking load cells, load cell connections, sway-links, levers, knife-edges and control system connections.
This type of calibration is carried out to recognized and agreed standards. Payback calculations can be used to illustrate how much our customers can save by optimizing weighing accuracy and helping them to ensure zero product giveaway.
