Delivering consistent products is essential for protecting your brand and your bottom line. The weight of each product must match the weight on its label and meet many regulatory standards. You want to avoid producing underweight and overweight items as both significantly impact your facility’s reputation and earning potential. The money-saving benefits of checkweighing are some of the primary reasons facilities choose to add these machines to their end-of-line production. Your checkweigher from AP DAtaweigh, Inc. can be customized to your needs to ensure that all products are classified, counted, and rejected if they are off-spec. How else can checkweighing save you money? Read on to find out.
Meet Product Specifications
Does the finished product match the specifications? This is the key question you must answer, and your checkweigher can compare data with limits that you set to ensure whether each individual product is acceptable.
Spot Underweight or Overweight Items
One of the prime benefits of checkweighing is spotting whether you are sending out too little or too much product. Underweight products are rejected, so you meet customer expectations and labeling policies for the product weight.
Overweight products are also automatically rejected, so you don’t give away product. You are impacting your bottom line if you add too much material, food, or other valuable products to each item.
Scan For and Eliminate Contaminants
Your checkweighers can be combined with other inspection equipment, including hugely beneficial metal detectors. This makes your inspection machinery economical and space-saving and provides another layer of inspection that ensures excellent product quality. Metal detectors can detect contaminants inside food and pharmaceutical products, which are subject to strict quality control expectations.
Notice Missing Primary Components
Count by weight helps guarantee customer satisfaction. Imagine if a customer opens a product, and an important item is missing. Their impression of your product, and perhaps even your entire company, will be severely damaged, and your overall profits may take a hit if enough impartial products are sent to consumers.
Besides ensuring customer satisfaction, maintaining quality output also helps ensure that your reputation for excellence stays intact.
Correct Issues Before Sending Products Out
One of the comprehensive money-saving benefits of checkweighing is the machine’s ability to detect problems in your production line before you send out your products. You are immediately alerted to defective products and can use the data from your machine to help locate where the issue lies. If many products are experiencing the same issue, you can go back to the source and correct it before wasting tons of product and sending low-quality items to market. This saves you the expense of product recalls and protects your reputation in your industry.
