Dynamic Precision Weighing: Challenges and Innovations

The ability to weigh products as they travel on a production line and deliver a consistently accurate result is a crucial part of the quality control process. With regulations mandating weights and measures in the industry, accuracy is a must. This white paper goes into the way dynamic weighing works, and the technology involved.

When evaluating a dynamic weighing solution, it is useful to have an understanding of not just the technology involved, but how to evaluate the way in which the technology can fit into your production process. Namely, how that technology handles the interplay between production throughput, the required standard deviation of the weighing results and the product center distance. These factors are linked and can be adjusted to deliver the best-fit solution for any production line.

This white paper goes into the relationship between the three factors, as well as the various technologies which can be utilized for this purpose: the use of strain gauges, electromagnetic force restoration cells (EMFR) and even the use of x-ray systems to quickly and accurately determine the weight of products. Additionally, the paper goes on to describe the various environmental factors which can have a negative effect on the accuracy of a dynamic weighing system. This includes the use of external sensors, as well as powerful software algorithms meant to take environmental factors into account when calculating the final result.

Finally, the white paper discusses the way in which developments in other technologies help to drive innovation in the dynamic weighing space: everything from improvements in micro processing technology through to material science allowing for sturdier system construction.
