Checkweighers These are critical in every food production line to achieve accurate and fast weighing of raw materials or finished goods. Under-weighing or overweighing can have equally adverse effects for your company. If the packages are underweight, you can expect unhappy customers. On the other hand, if the packages are overweight, it means you are giving costly giveaways and bearing overweight shipments. Use checkweighers to spot check raw materials and finished goods and for ensuring quality control of all your products. They give you a transparent, visible data and statistics on weights of your products. This helps in maximising performance, profitability and quality. Forklift Scales These allow the drivers to lift and weigh the bundled materials simultaneously. You can move or dispatch the products while tracking the weight, origin and location of the storage while transporting them. You get real-time data acquisition which you can use for inventory management and billing. You save a lot of time as well when you can weigh during transportation. Moreover, you can enjoy a quicker return on investment. You can include in-cab instruments like bar code scanners which allow the forklift operators to instantly capture important freight data and transmit it with weight data wirelessly through Bluetooth or radio to all the supervisory computer systems. Digital Weight Indicators At a very basic level, the weight indicators can collect, store and communicate weight data. If you opt for an advanced digital indicator, you can use wireless communication to transmit data to back office systems, thus improving management information and invoice management for all materials weighed. With a reliable and experienced service provider, you can maximise the efficiency of your weighing solutions, ensure compliance and keep your business moving. Look for a company that is committed to providing accurate calibration service and is backed by an expert team of repair and maintenance technicians who can precisely install, service, repair and maintain all types of weighing solutions. Periodic maintenance and routine checks will keep your equipment running at peak efficiency and prevent sudden failures that bring production processes to a halt.
