Mettler Toledo has launched the new GWP Verification service for weighing equipment assessment to help improve manufacturing quality and lower quality control costs.
GWP Verification weiging equipment assessments virtually guarantee better weighing results, lowered equipment-testing expenses, and enhanced final product consistency through a systematic, expert assessment and benchmarking of balance performance.
The Mettler Toledo GWP Verification service assesses the performance of weighing equipment to ensure accuracy. A one time investment in preventive maintenance lowers quality control costs and improves balance performance year after year. Better weighing can even enhance final product consistency, brand reputation and sales.
GWP Verification also helps ensure peace of mind as many companies do not know whether their weighing instruments actually meet day to day accuracy requirements. Furthermore, many manufacturers either test balances and scales too often or not often enough, which results in balances repeatedly failing appraisals and skyrocketing testing costs as operators struggle to make improvements in the absence of reliable data and guidance.
With GWP Verification, however, weighing results become more accurate. By using a fit gap analysis, Mettler Toledo experts measure a manufacturer's balance performance against accuracy requirements as well as the standards of the balance's original equipment manufacturer. Experts then review current quality management efforts and balance testing regimens.
GWP Verification uncovers whether a customer's current tests and weighing equipment testing schedule can ensure accuracy by assessing current performance versus ideal operating standards. If they cannot, Mettler Toledo metrology experts make recommendations that establish helpful weight classes, safe range nominal values, and effective testing frequencies.
With the right test weights and test types, testing of a manufacturer's balances is optimised to deliver the highest quality results on a consistent basis.
