Superior Design and Features for High Performance Over / Under Checkweighing
When working with a variety of pieces and parts to create kits and packages – counting scales can be a great help to speed up productivity while ensuring final kit completeness and quality. Counting scales from METTLER TOLEDO are able to measure even the smallest pieces and parts with accuracy – to ensure every piece is accounted for. Counting scale solutions can also connect directly to a PLC for elimination of manual data entry, leading to cleaner data and better operational visibility.
Improve Quality with Checkweighing
Check length of cables, products, assemblies, accessory kits, small packages and complete shipments for quality, completeness or intactness. Using compact scales makes manual quality control and sampling accurate, fast and reliable. Advanced display functions with colorWeight(R) and attached printers make checkweighing error-free and traceable. Read more
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
Whether your process requires basic checkweighing or a more sophisticated process with data management features, METTLER TOLEDO has a checkweigher that meets your requirements. 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.
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.
