Driver Southall are experts in the design and manufacture of checkweighers. We mostly supply the food processing and packaging industries but also offer high speed checkweighing equipment for direct and security mailing. See our full range of equipment here.
What is a Checkweigher?
A checkweigher is essential to any business, small or large. It’s a high precision system which is used to check the weight of products during the manufacturing process on production lines. It’s designed to ensure that each product meets the necessary weight guidelines, rejecting any that are outside the tolerance levels.
A checkweigher can typically weigh hundreds of items per minute, with every product leaving the production line at the correct weight. Not only does this allow manufacturers to save money, it also ensures quality control which is needed to promote brand reputation and customer satisfaction.
Checkweighers can also be used with metal detectors, enabling each product to be checked and acted upon accordingly.
Why would you use a Checkweigher in your Production Line?
- 100% Weight Inspection.
- Eliminate unwanted underfills or overfills of products.
- Compliance with government regulations and industry standards.
- Avoidance of fines or other such penalties (for selling underweight products).
- Improve production efficiency.
Our systems are designed with hygiene and practicality in mind. They are engineered to minimise production downtime, whilst still offering the performance and reliability we are known for.
