Ensure your suppliers meet
your specifications with the
latest weighing and measuring solutions. Verify the
amount of incoming goods
quickly and accurately with
vehicle, floor and bench
scales. Test the material with
moisture analyzers and other
analytical instruments for
quality and reliability.
Quality control, failure analysis and new product development require reliable and
powerful analytical instruments. Material characterization by thermal analysis is a
key application. Karl Fischer
titrators determine water contents down to 1ppm. Exact
analyses are crucial for longterm market success.
Smart weighing and counting
solutions keep track of stock
movements, ensure flawless goods storage and help
avoid out-of-stock situations
through direct integration
into ERP systems. Mobile
counting scales facilitate and
speed up commissioning.
In manufacturing, it’s key to keep process reliability under control while improving
productivity. Save time and money while speeding up your processes and controlling
quality. METTLER TOLEDO provides complete weighing and measuring solutions and
services that help enhance your business excellence.

recipe-weighing solutions
guide the operator quickly

step of the working process.
Process reliability is indispensable to maintain high
product quality and to
ensure customer satisfaction. Damaged or incomplete
products or cavities in castings are discovered through
manual over/under checkweighing or integrated highprecision weighing modules
in production machines.
Make sure you pack the correct amount of parts and
ensure correct packaging and
labeling. Static or dynamic
checkweighers guarantee that
no product leaves the factory
with missing parts. Vision
inspection verifies packaging and labeling and ensures
brand integrity.
Prior to shipping, orders
must be complete, on time
and properly documented
for tracking and tracing.

Moisture plays a crucial role in
many manufacturing processes.
For example, polymer granules
for injection molding should not
exceed the permissible water
level to avoid processing problems, poor surface quality or
reduced mechanical properties of
the molded parts.

weighing tasks
The differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique is ideal for
quality control, material development and research. It determines
thermal quantities, analyzes thermal processes and characterizes
or compares materials.
DSC yields valuable information
relating to processing, application, quality defects, identification, stability, reactivity, chemical
safety and the purity of materials.
Karl Fischer titration is the standard method for the specific
water content determination. It
provides accurate and precise
results within minutes. The coulometric technique applies from
1 ppm to 5%. The volumetric
technique is designed for a range
of 100 ppm to 100%.

Stable Processes & Error-free Products
To manufacture high-quality products or parts, regular quality control is
essential to ensure that production parameters are within specified ­limits.
If checked too late in the process, an entire lot could fail to meet the
­specification. With METTLER TOLEDO solutions, you can check parts quality
in- or off-line and even statistically monitor the results.
Quality Control

c­ ustomer satisfaction
Automated weight-based
quality control
Monitored and fully
documented quality
To maintain high product ­quality,
you must know about production
errors, such as small deviations
in assembling, cavities in castings or damage to coatings.
Static over/under checkweighing scales deliver those results
reliably. Operators benefit from
intuitive user interfaces with
colored displays (colorWeight®),
which immediately indicate when
­products are out of spec.
Check quality quickly and reliably by measuring weight before
and after each production step.
Automatic in-process control solutions detect violations of weight
tolerances as small as 0.001%
and control even complexshaped parts in split seconds.

For Excellent Business Results
Maximize uptime and throughput to protect your profit margins. Process
inefficiencies are reduced through the intuitive handling of our products,
while the ergonomic setup options minimize operator fatigue to speed up
production. Measuring results can be integrated into your network applications, but they also can trigger a process step to improve throughput.
Data Handling and Documentation
Integration and Automation
To simplify various measuring processes, you need
to handle numerous article IDs, reference values
and process parameters. For efficient data handling, METTLER TOLEDO products offer integrated
data storage and advanced connectivity to your
existing systems or computer. This also allows you
to store and analyze measuring results for statistical purposes. Printing solutions ensure your results
are properly documented and products are labeled
according to standard requirements and for tracing
and tracking.
The right interface option simplifies the integration
of your measuring equipment into your existing
network applications. It increases efficiency by
­ruling out overlaps and bringing together all relevant
data in one central database, where the data can
be monitored and analyzed. The most commonly
used interfaces allow for easy integration. To speed
up measuring processes, use barcode scanners,
RFID readers, external keyboards and alarm lights
connected to METTER TOLEDO equipment. Additionally, digital I/Os allow the control of manufacturing
­processes based on the measuring results.
