Consider these factors before you choose the right checkweigher for your facility.

Checkweighers are a crucial part of manufacturing, used to ensure the accuracy and consistency of product weight. They can be found in numerous industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and other consumer goods. As a manufacturer, you are tasked with choosing the right checkweigher for your needs to ensure the best possible results. Before you select your best checkweigher, consider the following factors. When you’re ready to decide, contact AP Dataweigh, Inc. to learn more about the benefits our products can bring to your manufacturing facility. 

Production Requirements

The first factor to consider before you choose the right checkweigher for your facility is your production requirements. How many products do you need to weigh per minute or hour? What is the weight range? These factors help you determine the capacity and accuracy range you need from your checkweigher. 

Product Type

The type of products you are manufacturing will also influence your decision. Certain products like liquids or powders may require specialized equipment to ensure accurate weight results. 

Accuracy Range 

Accuracy is a crucial factor in checkweighing. Make sure that the checkweigher you choose can meet your required level of accuracy. AP Dataweigh’s High-Resolution Checkweigher can measure accurately up to +/-. 05 grams at a rate as high as 250 pieces per minute. 

Regulatory Compliance

Depending on your industry, you may encounter regulatory requirements for checkweighing. Ensure that when you choose the right checkweigher, it can comply with programs such as the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) requirements. This program is designed to ensure food safety across every step of production. The food industry is one in which many regulations are in place to ensure that customers receive appropriate and safe products. 

Integration with Existing Equipment

Checkweighers should be compatible with the other equipment in your manufacturing process. Consider factors like the width, height, speed, and layout of your production line. At AP Dataweigh, Inc., our dynamic checkweighers are custom-built to fit your needs. We make what customers need instead of trying to sell what we make. 

Maintenance and Support

Like any piece of equipment, checkweighers require maintenance and occasional repairs to keep them in optimal condition. Before you choose the right checkweigher for your facility, ensure that the manufacturers offer adequate support and maintenance services to keep your checkweigher running well. 

When you work with AP Dataweigh, Inc. to create your ideal checkweighers, you can trust that you are working with a knowledgeable and skilled team prepared to help you create the best possible production line.
