Inline checkweighing equipment for the food manufacturing and processing industry weighs products in motion and classifies, counts and rejects products that are off spec. Checkweighers help ensure that the weight of a packaged product being shipped out the door matches the weight on the label, and can even confirm that all the intended pieces are included in the final package. In other words, food checkweighers help make sure consumers aren’t shortchanged—which could damage a company’s brand.
