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.
