Mettler Toledo has launched a new dedicated microsite, designed to make weighing expertise easily accessible to everyone.
Based on Mettler Toledo’s Global Weighing Standard - GWP, the new microsite provides a wealth of free information on all topics concerning weighing, such as correct weighing procedures, weighing risk and industry-relevant standards such as ISO, GMP/GLP, USP and HACCP.
The microsite covers weighing topics comprehensively with industry-specific news, customer cases, and white papers in addition to enabling users to watch on-demand webinars, download relevant information and try out the free weighing risk assessment tool.
Introduced in 2007, Mettler Toledo’s GWP presents a scientific approach to safe selection, calibration and operation of weighing equipment. Now, for the first time, that knowledge is open to the users across several different industries for free through this brand new portal.
The microsite has been created in response to several queries received from users about correct weighing processes, measurement uncertainty and minimum weight among others. Standard operating procedures for weighing, routine testing and calibration are also areas in which some quality assurance, laboratory and production managers often feel out of their depth.
Elaborating on why it is important for customers to get weighing right, Global Manager for GWP Marketing and Business Development Marianne Portmann explains that choosing the right balance or scale helps ensure safe, high-quality products while the right testing schedule can result in significant cost savings. Additionally, regulated industries have to comply with the relevant standards.
The new microsite aims to provide all the basic information that users need for efficient management of their weighing systems, as well as address some of their most frequently asked questions.
Mettler Toledo’s new microsite provides weighing knowledge relevant to 13 different market segments. However, regardless of the market segment, it is important for managers to understand the strong correlation between reliable weighing results and product quality. Now, balance and scale users can test their own weighing risk with the microsite’s online tool, Risk Check, which also provides a personalised weighing risk profile for download. Following the Risk Check, users have the option to perform a live repeatability test on their balance and can download the test report.
Users can request a free GWP Recommendation, wherein an official document is provided detailing the scale that best suits the user’s individual weighing application. The recommendation takes into account the individual weighing requirements such as sample size and process tolerances.
