What is Checkweighing?

Checkweighing is a process used within various industries – primarily in food and beverage. It involves using devices to quickly and reliably execute a weight recording.

During Checkweighing, a system will check the weight of each product and reject any products that are either over or under the set weight.

Checkweighing machines usually have a conveyer belt mounted to the weight checker itself so that products can be easily weighed during production.

Within a checkweigher, the user can store weight information for various components – our Minipond 3C can hold information on 100 articles at the same times.

Benefits of Checkweighing

Checkweighing is an extremely useful process as the items are weighed whilst on the conveyer belt rather than having to be taken off, handled and weighed individually. Therefore, benefits of using a system like this include;

  • Time saving
  • Reliable
  • Hygienic
  • Highly accurate
