Weight Verification

To improve manufacturing and lower quality control costs, Mettler Toledo has launched GWP Verification. This new service virtually guarantees better weighing results, lowered equipment-testing expenses and enhanced final product consistency through a systematic, expert assessment and benchmarking of balance performance, according to Mettler Toledo. Using a fit gap analysis, Mettler Toledo experts measure a manufacturer’s balance performance against accuracy requirements and 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 testing schedule can ensure accuracy by assessing current performance versus ideal operating standards. If they cannot, Mettler Toledo’s 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 optimized to deliver the highest quality results on a consistent basis. Furthermore, the company’s CarePacs allow a manufacturer to purchase only those weights required for routine testing instead of other more expensive sets.
