Additional Features


A conveyor scale simply acquires the weight and send it out.

An automatic checkweigher will acquire the weight, compare the weight against an upper and lower limit, and then take an action.  Just a few examples of actions are illuminate a light, stop a conveyor or divert the product off the line for rework (most popular). Our checkweigher will also store the weight for later analysis.

No.  Stopping the conveyor for each product would significantly increase component wear & tear, and reduce the throughput.

Even while in motion our NTEP certified scale and algorithm will accurately determine the weight of the weight of the product.

Most of the time, No.  A checkweigher is primarily used to validate how well a package, or container, was filled upstream.  The upstream scale, or filling machine, needs to be NTEP.  However, VBS is one of the few companies that offer an NTEP certified checkweigher.

Yes to both.  We offer RS-232 (serial) and Ethernet communication as standard.  You can see the database being populated or export the data after a finished run. (Ethernet IP option is also available.)

An inline checkweigher can weigh product in the conveyor line without having to pull the product off of the line and place it on a scale.  This allows 100% product weight sampling.
