When packaging any item, there is a delicate balance that needs to be reached. Firstly, it will be vital that you do indeed reach the weight or volume advertised on the packaging to ensure that you comply with trading laws, but by doing so it can be very easy to start overfilling your packaging and in turn wasting money as you throw away a huge amount of stock for free.
On the surface, the problem may only seem a very slight one. After all, if the odd gram here and there is thrown in for free, surely very little damage will be done? Well, the majority of products will only be very light, and therefore a couple of grams here and there can very quickly add up to the equivalent of an entire package, and when you consider how many packages might be prepared even in a single day, it is easy to see just how much potential profit might be going to waste.
Automating such processes using checkweighers will bring many benefits. Not only will the accuracy almost certainly be vastly improved to ensure that your company is not wasting a huge amount of valuable product every single day, but automation is likely to be far less fallible too.
People can quickly grow tired or easily have lapses in concentration that can very easily lead them to make mistakes, or even simply to work at greatly reduced efficiency. Neither of these problems will be experienced when using a checkweigher, and not only does this mean that you will be working at the optimum efficiency at all times, but also that human error doesn’t lead you to put out products that weigh far more or far less than they should.
Automation can remove a great deal of the potential for error, will increase profits almost immediately, and will almost certainly make any workplace more enjoyable.
