Conveyor Scales are freestanding, self-contained, and self-powered flat-belt weighing systems that can be incorporated into new or existing production facilities. The scale operates while the conveyor is in motion and is intended for the weighing of individual boxes, cartons, cans, or unpackaged products such as large cuts of meat. It is ideally suited to checkweighing, straight weighing, and weight accumulation operations.
Inline conveyor scales enhance your warehouse processes in several ways, including the following:
- Quickly handle product checkweighing while in the conveyor line
- Handle box weighing to determine mailing costs and maintain weights within consistent parameters
- Prevent over- or under-filling of boxes/packages while reducing false rejects
- Improve sortation and labeling without removing items from the conveyor line
- Support warehouse automation efforts
When integrated into a conveyor system, in-line scales ensure accuracy and catch errors before items progress down the line. The end result is greater quality assurance, more consistency in shipping calculation, and more data to use when making process improvements. While passing through the scale, each item’s measurements are checked against its expected weight, ensuring accuracy and preventing costly errors.
Conveyor scales greatly increase productivity when introduced into the production line. We offer several different types and sizes of these weighing systems, and we would be delighted to help you find the conveyor scales that best suit your needs. The scale you use depends on the nature of the items you process in your facility, their dimensions and weight, and the throughput of your conveyor system.
We can also help you determine the optimal place in the line for your conveyor scale. Our installation services can ensure your new conveyor scale is properly installed and operating accurately for correct checkweighing every time.
