Gliding limits are based on the nominal weight of the pharmaceutical products
As the weight of all the individual package components can vary from batch to batch, the "gliding limits" function is used to take these fluctuations in weight into account by defining variable upper and lower limits. This enables medium and long-term fluctuations against the mean value to be recorded and remedied. Long-term tare fluctuations can therefore be compensated using these newly calculated tolerance limits. The removal of the defective products under the "gliding limits" option is based solely on the nominal weight of the pharmaceutical product.
"Process reliability plays an extremely important role in the production of pharmaceutical products. Our medicines save lives. Insulin is a vital substance and market demand must be met. It is essential, therefore, that the availability of our products is always guaranteed", says Stephan Koll, responsible for production in the Injectables Division. "We opted for the METTLER TOLEDO checkweigher because it meets our standard component requirements in full" continues Koll.
Through the use of many standard components, METTLER TOLEDO can always guarantee the availability of spare parts for enhanced productivity. Furthermore, the stringent service demands of a modern and critical pharmaceutical company are fulfilled thanks to the efficient METTLER TOLEDO service network.
