| Maintaining Consistently Accurate Moisture Results |
In chemical production the moisture content from raw material to final product is regularly measured to ensure product quality. Therefore, an accurate and reliable instrument for testing is required. The new moisture analysis reference substance SmartCal™, combined with CarePac weights supports instrument calibration and helps to maintain accurate results.
| Weighing Guideline Increases Product Quality |
A Singapore-based food company initiated a project to protect the environment through enhanced product and packaging quality. With the help of the GWP® Verification program it was possible to increase product quality and reduce the impact on the environment. This also had positive effects on the company's productivity.

| Optimized Filling Quantities and Less Giveaway |
Packagers often overfill containers with product to avoid consumer and legal complaints about understated quantities on packaging labels. As a result manufacturers incur sizeable losses from unnecessary product giveaway. A robust quality data management system, particularly one with statistical quality control (SQC), can cut losses and optimize productivity.

| New Terminal for Clear Results and Fewer Errors |
| Improved Monitoring of Your Filling Process |
The filling and dosing process requires data accessibility by operators working in production and office environments. The formulation software, FormWeigh.Net, can now be combined with a Windows-based terminal, approved for wet and harsh environments. This delivers traceable quality data exactly where needed and optimizes your process response time.
| Economical Process Control of Manufactured Parts |
High-quality plastic, sintered metal and die-cast parts must not exhibit any cavities, but should be fully molded and complete. A deviation of just 0.001% can make the difference between good and reject parts. High-resolution weighing modules with repeatability between 0.001g and 0.000,001 g detect such deviations quickly and reliably.
| In-Process Control for Big and Small Vials |
The German filling machine manufacturer groninger uses the new WMS weigh modules to create a compact and scalable weighing system for in-process control (IPC) with multiple tracks. It weighs very small and very large vials rapidly and accurately on the same machine. In addition, the weigh modules carry heavy preload due to the special weighing pan.
| Sustainable and Profitable Thanks to Weighing Guideline |
Consumers are driving corporate sustainability and demanding accountability from their suppliers -- particularly in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Not only is environmental stewardship the right thing to do, but it also can impact your bottom line. Accurate weighing with Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) Verification can eliminate bad batches while increasing productivity.
| Does Your Process Comply with New Quality Standards? |
Quality regulations are protection for the consumers. The new quality regulation ISO 22716 becomes effective in the European Union in summer 2013. By then, the cosmetics and its supplying industries will have verified that their processes and systems are in compliance with this new ISO norm. GWP® Verification ensures your weighing systems are compliant and meet the intended use.
| Boosting Food Production with Halogen Moisture Analyzers |
Moisture content is a key consideration in the food industry, where high productivity and regulatory compliance are essential requirements. METTLER TOLEDO’s latest generation Excellence HS153 Halogen Moisture Analyzer offers high speed testing combined with ruggedness and ease-of-use for reliable operation.
| New Moisture Analyzers Provide Peace of Mind for Pharma Production |
Strict control of moisture content is vital in the pharmaceutical industry. Standards must be followed when producing both generic and brand name drugs. METTLER TOLEDO’s Excellence HX204 Moisture Analyzer not only offers high measurement performance. Complying with industrial standards is another important asset of this new solution.
| Quality Managment for Regulated Environments |
Product manufacturers are increasingly subject to regulations intended to protect consumers. A good compliance strategy begins with weighing processes. Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) offers a reality-based model that can be applied when meeting legal requirements and regulatory standards such as ISO, IFS, BRC or HACCP is mandatory.
| Control & Communication-Link Opens Asian Markets |
Control & Communication (CC)-Link network technology reaches from enterprise IT connectivity to simple digital I/O on the shop floor. It is a well-established standard in Asia, making its implementation into machines a door-opener for this market. METTLER TOLEDO offers a comprehensive range of weighing equipment available for connectivity with CC-Link network technology.
| Power Up Your Formulation Processes for Compliance |
Fast-changing consumer preferences and pressures from regulatory authorities are forcing pharmaceutical manufacturers to improve their production processes. To ensure consistent product quality and process safety, companies must use correct formulations and weighing procedures. FormWeigh.Net® software makes controlling the production process easy.
| Recalibrate to Ensure Accurate Weighing Results |
It is common knowledge that scales should be calibrated before first use. But recalibration is sometimes necessary to ensure accurate weighing results. Recalibration can save you time, money and headaches.
| New Terminal Ensures Less Waste |
Rising raw material costs makes reducing waste and eliminating mistakes essential to remain profitable. Traditional batching processes are prone to human error, causing bad batches. The IND780batch terminal ensures fewer errors by controlling your batching processes automatically or by guiding the user through manual processes.
| Versatile Concept Simplifies Engineering |
The IND131/331 weighing terminal family offers three housings, including DIN-Rail Mount, Panel-Mount and Junction Box. All models are approved for Zone 2/22 and Division 2 hazardous areas. These models have the same functionality, but are tailored for use in specific environments.
