What to Think About When Choosing a Multi-Head Weigher

These days, automated, multi-head weighing stations are becoming more and more popular in a variety of industries. And it’s no wonder why — automated weigh stations offer a number of advantages over traditional manual ones. At BPI, we understand that every business is different and has different needs. That’s why we offer a variety of weighing station options to our clients, so they can choose the one that best suits their needs. 

Here are a few things to consider when choosing a weighing station for your business.

Increasing Efficiency

Of course, cost is always a consideration when making any purchase for your business. But it’s important to remember that when it comes to automated weigh stations, you get what you pay for. If you choose a cheap, inaccurate scale, it will likely end up costing you more in the long run. In contrast, a weigher from BPI will save you money by ensuring accuracy and efficiency in your operations.

Automated weigh stations are much more accurate than their manual counterparts, which means they can help you save money on product waste. In addition, automated weigh stations can help you boost your production efficiency, which can lead to increased profits.

Size & Capacity

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a weighing station is size and capacity. What are you weighing? Do you need a large scale or a small one?
