Piece counting accuracy can impact profits in a big way. Mistakes can be costly and translate to overfilling costs, unstable production processes, waste and reputational damage. Selecting the right counting solution for a specific application can save money right from the start. METTLER TOLEDO has published a new white paper that explains how parts weights and their deviations impact accuracy.

When counting with scales, three factors determine the accuracy of the counting result; Parts weights and their deviation; the accuracy of the counting scale; and environmental conditions. GWP Recommendation for Counting builds on the principles of the global weighing standard, Good Weighing Practice. It is a free qualification service that determines the right counting solution for a specific application based on the three factors. The GWP experts recommend the appropriate counting scale and document its achievable counting accuracy.

With this service, it is easier to achieve accurate results despite piece weight deviations, which is one of the main sources of errors in counting. Using Good Weighing Practice, a science-based way to choose the right weighing solutions and maintain accuracy over time, the experts at METTLER TOLEDO identify which measures can be taken to improve counting accuracy in a given process.
