  • 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.

  • 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
