CHECKWEIGHING CASE STUDIES

  • Overcoming HACCP Obstacles With Metal Detection/Checkweighing Systems

    This case study shows how one food manufacturer, Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Visitors Center, keeps its customers safe with a combination food metal detector/checkweigher system.

  • Portion Control: Flow Meters Vs. Weight Control

    Royal Food Products could continue its portion control method using flow meters or find a new way of weighing individual ingredients. The company's plant engineer explains the choice to use load cells.

  • How Load Cells Increased Ice Cream Manufacturing Accuracy

    When the University of Wisconsin found it necessary to update their dairy mixing processes, they chose to update their system with the advantages and benefits offered by load cells over pressure gauges.

  • Brewing Company Assures Fill Levels With Checkweigher System

    At Matt Brewing Company, attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality are the signature trademarks of the company and their award-winning Saranac beers. Concerned with accuracy and reliability, the company wanted to assure every customer receives a full can of beer every time, so they searched for a gamma fill level inspection system and instead, became the first brewer in the world to use this new checkweigher technology for 100 percent inspection.

  • Frozen Cake Manufacturer Uses Combination Metal Detector & Checkweigher Unit To Assure Quality

    Maximum product quality has to be guaranteed, and has come to be expected, from the customers of this frozen dessert specialist. Top quality checkweighing and metal detection systems are essential in ensuring this quality.

  • Checkweighers Save Bagel Manufacturer Lots Of Dough

    One wholesale bagel baker in the Pacific Northwest attributes its success to their willingness to go the extra mile to meet their customers’ quality standards. In this case, that extra mile was represented by over-apportioning dough to ensure that the finished bagels were at or above the specification weight. This policy was good for customer satisfaction, but not very good for profitability. By Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed

CHECKWEIGHING WHITE PAPERS & ARTICLES

  • Ensuring Food Safety Through The Prevention Of Physical Contamination

    Incidents of physical contaminants in food can have a detrimental impact on brand reputation. This white paper explains different types of physical contamination in food and how to prevent them.

  • Calculating The Total Cost Of Ownership Of Production Line Equipment

    Considering TCO helps to understand better the costs over and above the purchase price and also – when suppliers have differing offers – to compare them and ultimately to substantiate the investment decision.

  • Slope’s Effect On Accurate Weighing

    Scales are designed with the assumption there is only a vertical force. This article shows formulas explaining slope's effect on accurate weighing and how to adjust scales based on sloped floors.

  • Enhancing Scale Performance For Multi-Component Batching

    Compounding liquid solutions or blending powders into a final mixture are common industrial weighing applications. This paper suggests methods to enhance scale performance in multicomponent batches.

  • White Paper: How To Build An IT Infrastructure For Net Weight Control This white paper explores the key Information Technology(IT) issues that engineers and quality professionals should consider when developing a net contents or weight control program. The intent of this paper is to give non-IT specialists the background they need to better communicate with their IT counterparts and other business leaders, and thus have more effective conversations. By Hertzler Systems Inc.
  • Using "Smart Calibration" To Ensure Accurate Weighing

    The ability to commission tank load cells without test weights or flow meters can significantly reduce both the installation cost and improve overall weighing accuracy. Using factory calibration data instead of weights even allows the changing of load cells or instrumentation whilethe tank remains filled with material.
