Tank/Hopper/Silo weighing

Challenge: Large scale production with minimal waste, high hygiene and adherence to food safety regulations
Solution: VPG Force Sensors' solution takes into account the requirements for highly accurate weighing with minimal manual interference, which results in a low cost of ownership. To suit any capacity of the tank or tank type, we offer a broad range of highly reliable stainless steel load cells with capacities up to hundreds of tons, as well as stainless steel mounting modules.

Check-weigher

Challenge: Accurate, robust check-weighers
Solution: Check-weighers are automatic machines designed to facilitate accurate and time-bound "check by weight" on different types of product within a moving process. High precision is required to determine if a production flow is accepted or rejected. VPG Force Sensors load cells are used in the check-weigher application because they are rugged, accurate and able to withstand the rigors of high-speed loading.
