Effective quality control doesn't require expensive optics. Weight-based quality control (WbQC) is a fast and easy way to check product quality, completeness and intactness. A new webinar from METTLER TOLEDO explains how checking by weight is easy to do quickly and at a minimal cost.

The new 15-minute on-demand webinar, "Weight-based Quality Control Innovative Solutions for Flawless Products," explores the benefits of weight-based quality control and explains its use in practical applications.

Quality control is important in production processes to ensure no faulty products are sold and that customers receive what they have ordered. However, some methods are too slow or require expensive technology for optical or tactile checking. For accurate and fast quality checks, weight can be used instead.

"Weight-based quality control is an effective way to ensure completeness of products," says Simone Zimmermann, METTLER TOLEDO marketing manager. "Quality parameters can be verified simply by looking at weight differences. Using this method, you can expect high throughput, easy handling and low installation costs."

The webinar explains the use of weight-based quality control in practical applications, including checking various aspects of product quality and completeness of shipments, such as:

Product Quality:
• Intactness of casting
• Density of parts
• Completeness of assemblies
• Cable length
• Amount of lubrication applied

Completeness of Shipments:
• Kits
• Boxes
• Packages

The webinar also explains how a scale's data-management features can speed up weighing tasks and help in decision-making. Production data can be used to find issues within the production process and to make timely improvements based on them.
