Successful Application Story
A Michigan food producer came to Grand Rapids Metrology with a need for a more accurate scale system of sorting, grading and weighing incoming vegetable product for production. The farmers delivering the raw ingredient are paid by the grade and weight of their product, making accuracy of utmost importance.
Grand Rapids Metrology designed and installed an automated scale system that employs a belt scale to accurately sort and weigh the incoming load. It was built directly into the existing belt for minimal disruption to the process flow. The quality system records the grade, farmer, field, traceability of the seed and price for each load and enters them into a database. With this scale system, the company is able to process their product and pay their farmers quickly and accurately and has saved them significant time, money and risk of human error.
