15 April 2024

The performance of weighing equipment can degrade over time due to various factors. Routine testing, conducted by the user between scheduled calibrations, aids in the early detection of deviations from weighing process requirements, reducing the risk of inaccurate results. In this guide, METTLER TOLEDO highlights the importance of maintaining the accuracy of laboratory balances or industrial scales. Balancing testing frequency is crucial to avoid excessive resource consumption without providing meaningful metrological insights. Understanding essential testing practices ensures accurate weighing results daily, as neglect or improper testing can lead to undetected inaccuracies, inferior product quality, and process issues.
