What are precision weight sorters and checkweighers?

Precision weight sorters and checkweighers are highly accurate devices which can rapidly check large quantities of product, separating out items that are within acceptable limits from those that are under or over-weight. These devices weigh each tablet or capsule individually and can sort an entire batch unattended while keeping detailed records of every weighing.

SADE SP-B40 Benchtop

SP-4C tablet and capsule weight sampler is an effective and compact unit used for recording and analysing the weight of samples taken from a production line. It has the capability of checking tablets and capsules of a variety of shapes and sizes and offers an accuracy of +/- 0.5mg.

The unit can be located in a production booth or positioned centrally in a QC area where it can monitor up to 10 lines simultaneously.
