Checkweigher, an industrial automation machine, is used for weighing goods and commodities before or after packaging. Checkweigher ensures that the weight of the goods is within the specified limit. A checkweigher consists of a number of conveyor belts, conveyor, dynamic, and in-line scales. Typically, a checkweigher has three types of belts; feed belt, weighing belt, and reject belt, that helps in completing the whole cycle. Checkweigher is also used for the purpose of quality check of raw materials or other composites in a manufacturing process by measuring their weights. These industrial machines could be of three types; manual checkweigher, semi-automatic checkweigher, and automatic checkweigher, and they are employed in a huge scale of end use industries including food & beverage, chemical, automotive, packaging, machine building, telecommunication, pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, and agriculture.
