Superior Design and Features for High Performance Over / Under Checkweighing
A checkweighing scale is any standard weighing scale that is enabled with checkweighing functionality. Checkweighing is an application that bench scales and floor scales can have built in to their programming. All are fast, rugged and precise to enhance speed and accuracy. Some models are available with colorWeight™ functionality, which indicates in- or out-of-specification results at a glance.
Scale with a Hygienic Touch
The new full stainless-steel terminal front, consisting of one solid stainless steel plate, doesn't carry any physically accessible buttons. This eliminates the risk of residues or water accumulation on the surface. Furthermore, the metal front protects the unit's inductive keys against mechanical damage and assures failure- free operation in tough environments. Read more

FAQs - Checkweigher Scales
What is a checkweighing scale used for?
A checkweighing scale is used specifically for the application of checkweighing. This application involves checking weighments to ensure they are on target with the required weight. This can be used in many different industries..
What industries utilize checkweighing?
Checkweighing is typically used in industries that require lower precision. For example, food production including ready meals manufacturing will utilize checkweighing to ensure meals are meeting certain target weights. This can be a compilation of fruits, vegetables, and meat – and each meal is checked to ensure that it is within a certain tolerance. In this case, if the meal it +/- a couple leaves of lettuce, then it would pass. If the meal was found to be well below the target weight, such as missing the entire meat portion, then this meal would be flagged for inspection – and the checkweighing process had correctly done its job. Another industry that utilizes checkweighing is MPE manufacturers – in this case, cartons of pieces are checked to ensure completeness. For example, a supplier to the automotive industry may be shipping a box of 1,000 tire plugs, a checkweighing scale can be used to easily determine if the box is complete or if there are pieces missing. This allows for corrective action to be taken early, rather than shipping incomplete to the customer. Industries that require higher precision for sensitive formulations, such as chemical and pharmaceutical, would likely not use a checkweighing application.
