Checkweighing scales have the primary function of weighing an item and determining whether it sits within two fixed limits. They are used to ensure that all identical products remain equal in terms of their weight. As you might expect, these instruments are very common on production lines in order to guarantee consistent results.
Although the visual indicators can change, the overall premise of a checkweigher remains the same. You set your own minimum and maximum limits and when the item is placed on the scale it will either state whether it is inside or outside of your weight range. Some may give a visual signal such as flashing red or green, whilst others may give an audible indicator instead.
For some uses it is necessary to have trade approved scales for your business. The scales will be marked with a black M if they are trade approved, although if you do need any help please contact us on 01908 972 660 or use our live chat feature at the bottom of the page.
