Checkweighing Scale FAQs

Checkweighers are used to weigh boxes, and depending on the industry, weighing can be done in motion or static modes. Checkweighing scales are essential in quality control since they help determine if a product is the correct weight and can track product weight over time for consistency. They are also used to ensure equal and uniform filling of boxes or containers by setting up a target weight. 

Checkweighing scales work by weighing items as they pass through the scale. The scale compares the weight of each item to a predetermined weight limit, and if the weight is outside of the acceptable range, an alarm or other notification is triggered.

To choose the best checkweighing scale, it is important to consider several features. Capacity and readability are critical to ensure that the scale can accurately weigh items, and the display should be highly visible for easy reading. A tare function is also essential to account for the weight of containers or packaging. An auto off function is useful to save power, especially for battery powered scales. Finally, the weight display should be large and easy to read.

Yes, many checkweighing scales are designed to be integrated into production lines to provide real time weight measurements and ensure that items are within the acceptable weight range.

To calibrate your checkweighing scale, you will typically need a set of certified calibration weights that are traceable to a national or international standard. You can then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for calibrating the scale, which may involve adjusting the calibration settings or performing a zero calibration. It is important to calibrate your checkweighing scale regularly to ensure accurate measurements.
