Weighing is affecting manufacturing productivity in many process steps and applications. Effective selection of the right weighing technology, appropriate processing of the raw data and easy connectivity to your production planning or plant automation systems is a basic requirement for engineering, production- and quality management.
This guide serves as a reference point for those involved in production equipment selection and process design. It helps to identify areas for improvement by adapting processes, selecting the right equipment and developing appropriate SOP’s (Standard operating procedure) and calibration procedures. Checklists and ROI (Return on Investment) calculators support to focus your resources in the right field and take informed investment decisions.
The first part provides insights into basic principles and latest technologies around fast and accurate weighing. The second part focuses on how to get sustainable high performance of your equipment and assuring high factory uptime.
