The payback of accurate checkweighing for a global bakery supplier.
A global bakery supplier of liquid glaze and frosting was inconsistently filling 3 and 5 gallon pails of product. Because of variability in the product flow as plant temperatures increased after start up, the time-fill machine was overfilling the buckets by as much as 5% to ensure that minimum specification weights were met. Additionally, lids were not always secure and bar code labels were sometimes missing.
