In-line checkweighers are an invaluable component and tool in assuring the highest quality in most, if not all, production and packaging lines. In-line checkweighers are an invaluable tool for automated product inspection.
Businesses that are based on:
- Product packaging and order filling
- Produce packaging
- Food packaging
- Chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturing
- Automated production lines
These are just a few of the many applications where an in-motion, in-line, checkweigher can be used for quality assurance purposes.
Southwestern Scale has just completed the 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 that products of only the highest level of quality are 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.
If you would like more information on these or any other type of scale call Southwestern Scale Company at (602) 243-3951 or visit us online here.
