Reducing overfill by only 0.5g per pack can save over 100,000 €
Giving away 0.5g per pack may not sound very much but you can see in the following example how quickly investing in a stable and accurate GARVENS X-series checkweigher pays back.

|Price per gramme||0.0037 €|
0.5g overfill per pack
|Cost per minute||0.37 €/min|
|Cost per hour||22.20 €/hr|
|Cost per day (3 shifts, 20 hour production)||444 €/day|
|Cost per year (230 days of production)||102, 120 €/yr |
