Lantech Inc: Integrated scale cuts shipping costs

Designed for weighing each load for quality and freight costs, Lantech’s EZ Weigh Integrated Scale includes load cells that are directly under the turntable to ensure only what you want to weigh is weighed.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Stretch wrapping  > Turn table

Weighing every load can cut transportation costs by 5 – 7%, according to the company.  Other weighers may be less accurate because they are built into the entire base of the stretch wrapper.  Items placed near the turntable could also be included in the weight count.  Weighing every load for quality and freight costs on a stretch wrapper with load cells under the turntable is the most accurate way to reduce freight costs.
