Mettler Toledo, Inc: Weigh modules

Suitable for checking the completeness of parts, kits, or modules as well as quality of surfaces where material is added or subtracted, the new high-resolution weigh modules from Mettler Toledo provide fast and simple solutions for 100% In-Process-Control, according to the company.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Inspection  > Checkweighers

Seamlessly integrated into various machines and instruments. In an automated process the weigh module can detect violations of weight tolerance of 1 ppm in a split second. This high-measurement speed is said to enable 100% inspection without sacrificing high throughput. Lighting and positioning of the part doesn’t matter; this method is suitable for complex shapes, hidden structures, material inconsistency, as well as transparent or reflective materials.

The modules offer easy compliance with standards like TS16949 and ISO9001 for quality control.  Weigh modules are tested with traceable weights to comply with the above mentioned standards. This procedure is easy and inexpensive. In addition, most weigh modules have a built-in calibration weight. This allows for automatic verification of function and precision, plus adjustment if necessary, at any time.
