Southwestern Scale has just completed installation and integration of a Rice Lake Motoweigh in-line checkweigher for a prominent medical device manufacturer in Arizona. This system assures kitted assemblies are complete through the production line, in-motion, automatically by weight. In conjunction with weight verification is a barcode scanning inspection to assure the proper assembly number is being manufactured. A system-triggered reject arm removes rejected product from the production line to assure the highest level of quality product is being delivered to the customer.
In-line checkweighers can also include integrated video cameras for visual inspections. For added system control, the checkweigher can be integrated with existing equipment, PLC controllers, conveyor motors and other material handling equipment.
PUSHING THE LIMITS: On March 10, 2014 we supplied the most weight for a single-pick load-test to date: 75,000lbs. The scope of work was to load test three 30 ton overhead cranes in one location. The use of our certified weights and weight carts made the job easier and faster to complete. To learn more about Load Testing Services we offer to crane companies and crane owners click here:
