Balances and scales play a critical role in research and development, quality assurance and production. Errors in weighing cost time and money, due to rework, waste and product recalls.
In order to maintain consistent product quality and comply with standards and regulations, the performance of balances and scales needs to be verified regularly with a calibration. Routine testing of balances or scales in-between these scheduled calibrations helps to maintain accuracy by ensuring early detection of non-conformance with weighing process requirements so that corrective action can be taken in a timely manner.
This webinar will give you a good understanding of why balance and scale testing is crucial for the accuracy of your weighing results in laboratory and production environments. We explain what your routine testing plan must contain, and, on top of that, we offer an overview of how to perform these routine tests correctly.
In this webinar you will learn:
- What routine testing is
- The difference between routine testing, calibration and adjustment
- The consequences of not testing a balance or scale
- The four pillars of routine testing
