Mettler Toledo, Inc: Scales with intuitive menus
Mettler Toledo’s newest scale models in the ICS family feature user menus, flexible software, and configurable components to provide easy integration into even the most complex industrial production lines.
The new models, including, ICS425, ICS435, ICS445, ICS465, and ICS685 are easier-than-ever to use, featuring large alpha-numeric keyboards and clear readouts. ColorWeight technology enables operators to quickly determine whether a weighing or counting result is below, within, or above the set target.
ICS5 menus are intuitive and make finding and performing specific operations easy. Free, definable soft keys provide operators with the ability to quickly access often-used functions, eliminating hunting-and-pecking for multiple keys. Optional user prompts guide operators step-by-step through every required function, improving accuracy and safety when working with volatile materials. User management can also be initiated to allocate rights and profiles to different users, which adds a level of security to the weighing process.
The flexible ICS5 scale terminal and platform can be mounted as a compact, stand-alone, or separate component for easy placement among other equipment or for enhanced ergonomics. Battery cases allow mobile and cable-free operation, even in the most remote corners of a warehouse facility. Digital interfaces can connect to IT systems, additional scales, and label printers at any point along a manufacturing line. These features help ensure operators do not have to walk back and forth between components to interpret or label results, speeding up weighing processes and decreasing operator fatigue.
The line provides the ability to track weighing trends and tighten production margins without sacrificing quality. ICS465 and ICS685 include an embedded database with alibi and transaction memory and smart export/import functionality by USB stick or Ethernet.
