Why Custom Checkweighers are Necessary for Product Inspections

AP Dataweigh, Inc. custom checkweighers

Custom checkweighers from AP Dataweigh increase your efficiency and decrease product waste.

When building your production line, it is essential that you include a checkweigher for packaging inspection. At AP Dataweigh, Inc., our custom-built machines are suited to your facility’s specifications, so it fits in seamlessly with your existing production line. Why are checkweighers essential? These machines are necessary for guaranteeing accurate product inspections and ensuring that unacceptable overweight or underweight products do not make it to market. They can eliminate waste, ensure product quality, and provide data that helps you make essential business decisions. If you’re ready to learn more about how to optimize your use of custom checkweighers, reach out to our team at AP Dataweigh, Inc. today.

Increased Packaging Accuracy 

The primary reason you should be using custom checkweighers is to prevent waste. Checkweighers allow you to accurately assess if you are using too much product, which is critical to your line’s efficiency and your company’s bottom line. Even if a package goes over the target weight by a small amount, those small mistakes add up fast in mass production systems. 

Guarantees Product Quality 

One helpful way to check if a mistake has been made during production is to test the weight of the package. You should have an expected product weight that your products consistently hit, whether you are packaging food, pharmaceuticals, or other items. If a product passes through the checkweigher and indicates a different weight, that is an indication that something went wrong earlier in production. 

When alerted to this weight difference, you can immediately take note and go through your production line to check for errors or corrections. This can save you extensive time and money by alerting you to the problem as soon as possible. By preventing the shipment of these products out to market, you also avoid a recall process or consumer complaints.  

Custom Checkweighers Provide Concrete Data

Checkweighers are an essential diagnostic tool for your production facility. It can help you ensure that your product meets the consistent quality your customers demand. The machines can save you a significant amount of wasted product across the life of your company. You can also eliminate problem areas more efficiently when quickly alerted to any errors or production issues. 

In many industries, if you produce inconsistent or inaccurate products—especially food or pharmaceutical products—the negative consequences could be as severe as illness or death in your customers. This is why thorough production inspection is necessary for all production lines. Your professional reputation, as well as the well-being of your customers, relies on the consistency and safety of your product.
