Automatic Weighing System is a device used to automatically measure the weight of an object.
They are typically used to weigh goods and products. Automatic Weighing Systems perform weighing with a high degree of accuracy, eliminating the effects of human error and subjective judgment. Accurate weighing results improve quality control and transaction reliability.
In addition, weighing can be performed at high speed. Compared to manual weighing, it reduces work time and improves operational efficiency. The introduction of Automatic Weighing System is especially beneficial when weighing large quantities of goods or products, or when a large number of weighings need to be performed in a short timeframe.
Depending on the product, weighing data can be automatically recorded and stored in a database. This makes it easy to track and analyze weighing history and statistics, thereby improving quality control and productivity.
Automatic Weighing Systems are used in a variety of industries and applications
In the retail industry, products are weighed to determine the selling price. Supermarkets typically weigh vegetables, fruits, meat, and fish and set prices based on the weights.
Automatic Weighing Systems are also used to weigh pre-packaged products such as bread and confectionery.
Agriculture requires the weighing of harvests and produce. In orchards, harvested apples and oranges are weighed and used for quality control and pricing prior to shipment.
Poultry farming involves weighing eggs for classification and grading.
The logistics industry needs to measure the weight of packages and cargo to arrange transportation and calculate charges. Carriers use Automatic Weighing Systems when receiving packages to confirm the exact weight and determine the appropriate means of transportation and rates.
Automatic Weighing Systems use sensors to detect weight. Commonly used sensors are load cells and pressure sensors. Sensors sense the weight of an object and acquire that information.
The weight information acquired from the sensor is often received as an analog signal. This analog signal is converted to a digital signal through an amplifier, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), or other circuitry. Once converted to a digital signal, the data is processed by a built-in computer system.
The processed data is typically displayed on a display as a weight value. Many Automatic Weighing Systems also have the ability to record weighing data and store the results in an internal database or external recording device.
However, calibration is required to ensure accurate weight measurements. Calibration is the process of adjusting the weighing machine using a known weight. Automatic Weighing Systems require periodic maintenance and recalibration to compensate for the effects of the passage of time and external factors.
There are many different types of Automatic Weighing Systems. The following are examples of types of Automatic Weighing Systems
Automatic Weighing System with a large weighing platform. They are mainly used in the industrial and logistics industries and are suitable for weighing large loads and pallets. It has a high load-bearing capacity and a sturdy structure for weighing.
Automatic Weighing System used for packaging goods. It accurately weighs products and controls the weight when packing them into packages. Widely used in packaging lines for food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, etc.
Automatic Weighing System weighs objects or products passing on a conveyor belt. They are mainly used in the logistics and manufacturing industries and are suitable for weighing flowing products and collecting statistical data.
In the mining industry, such as mines and quarries, weighing of ores and aggregates is important. Belt scales are used to measure ores flowing on conveyor belts, and are used to control shipping quantities and quality control.
An Automatic Weighing System weighs objects or materials by placing them in a hopper that is fed automatically. Hopper scales can perform control based on weighing results.
It can effectively control the production process by automating the start and stop of feeding, control of batches, etc., and can be easily integrated with other systems and equipment. Continuous powder measurement is also possible, contributing to accurate feeding of seasonings in snack bagging lines, for example. It is also used for material feeding in batch mixing and reaction processes.
