Weight-based quality control is a fast and secure way to checking product quality, intactness or completeness. Quality parameters are verified simply by looking at weight differences. The method is characterized by high throughput, easy handling and low installation cost.

In production of metal parts, regular quality checks are necessary to satisfy customers. Checking processes have to keep up with production speed even in manual assembly. Sometimes common optical and tactile quality checks are too slow, too costly or simply not suitable for a company’s desired application.

“Weight-based quality control offers an alternative way of quality testing. It is a very versatile, accurate and fast method to check the quality of a wide range of metal products throughout the manufacturing process,” says Simone Zimmermann, METTLER TOLEDO marketing manager.

The white paper shows application examples, quality control methods and benefits of weight-based quality control. It explains how weighing equipment ensures high usability and provides automated quality data. The reader can learn how weighing applications can significantly lower a company’s quality risk, optimize its processes and help protect its reputation.
