Improving production output with high speed checkweighers

August 19, 2016

Production managers across the country struggle with hitting production numbers. One of the main reasons for delayed production is the inability to weigh product on the line at a high speed without compromising accuracy.  RMH Systems has a product line that can eliminate that issue.  The Thompson checkweighers are high-speed, high-capacity scales that can help your line get the output you need with accurate weight measurements on EVERY product.

According to General Manager for Scales, Craig Howard, "the Thompson checkweighers are great because they can accurately weigh a lot of product at varying weights and speeds.  Many scales out there can give you one or the other."

Take a look at the application grid below:

Capacity 1 to 200 lb. 1 to 50 lb. .1 to 20 lb. .1 to 12 lb.
Accuracy +/- .05 lb. @ 2 sigma +/-.1% +/- .02 lb. @ 2 sigma +/-.1% +/- 1g @ 2 sigma +/-.1% +/- .35g @ 2 sigma +/-.1%
Production Rates 50/minute 65/minute 200/minute 350/minute
Package Type bag, box, pail, drum bag, box, pail, drum Flexible packages; pouch, bag, etc. Rigid packages; cans, bottles, jugs

Industrial & institutional bagged product;

Concrete, grain, chemical, etc.

Fullfillment, manifest, produce, bakery,

Food, consumer products, flex FFS,

parts count/verify, etc

pharmaceutical, trays, food, parts

There's really an option for any application.  The Thompson Scales are reasonably priced, and their payback is quick.  You're cutting into your profit margins with every product that isn't accurately weighed on the line.  There are food-grade, stainless steel options as well.
