Weigher quality assurance

February 1, 2010



GWP Risk Check for balances and scales is an interactive online assessment tool that provides qualitative and quantitative analysis of balance performance and weighing environment. Compatible with most balance and scale makes and models, it’s designed to help users optimize quality assurance by assessing the appropriateness of the weighing environment and balance testing frequency. By plugging in real-world data, users learn if their “weighing risk”–the possibility that poor weighing accuracy or the environment are skewing measurements–is low, or if they need to make changes to help ensure safe, accurate and consistent results. The system also provides advice on which adjustments will optimize balance performance and reduce the risk of inaccurate measurements.
