Precise weight measurements play an important role in increasing revenue by decreasing the money lost due to manufacturing failures and inefficiency. This is particularly true of paint, chemical, and drug manufacturers, who know all too well that failure to add a proper amount of a given substance can render a large quantity of product completely unusable, and thus a total loss.
Aside from the product, equipment repair and replacement is an expense as well. Using cutting edge Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology, Arlyn Scales creates extremely precise durable scales that can withstand the stress of weights, including accidental impact, far better than strain gauge scales, which are in widespread use.
Arlyn Scales wants to show you how an advanced weighing system can cut down on your expenses both in terms of product lost, and money spent repairing and replacing equipment, thus increasing revenue.
Arlyn Scales will Improve Quality of Production
Accurate measurements of weight can make a difference in one of the major expenses in production. The pharmaceutical industry saw a spike in recalls for 2016, and according to this breakdown about the details, greater quality control measures are an excellent way to minimize the possibility of a recall.
Not only do Arlyn Scales offer incredibly high resolution, they can be incorporated with automated shutoff valves to deliver mechanical accuracy to your measurements.
Benefits of Ultra-Precise Scales from Arlyn
These scales offer a degree of accuracy ten to twenty times greater than that offered by other scales.
No matter what data infrastructure you have, Arlyn Scales can interface with your equipment for a streamlined process. That means less money spent on new hardware for data sorting, storage or sharing. A good record of amounts used and materials weighed is important information when exploring ways to develop a more efficient budget.
Replace and Repair Scales Less Often
Each company or industry has its own formula for determining the cost of damaged equipment, both in terms of replacement or repair and the cost of the slowed or stopped manufacturing process.
Arlyn Scales offers weighing equipment that is more durable than common alternatives thanks to our cutting edge Surface Acoustic Wave, or SAW technology.
SAW technology means that the load censor experiences only a tenth of the stress placed on it in strain gauge scales. It is also better equipped to handle accidental shock weights of something dropping suddenly on the scale. This means you’ll see less damage to the scale over time, which means spending less money on repairs.
Time is Money and Arlyn Scales Save You Both
A fascinating study said that the economy loses $37 billion per year in unnecessary meetings. In other words, time is money. An efficient and automated production line of the type offered by Arlyn Scales could make an enormous difference in output, and by extension revenue. All this is possible with the smart technology for measuring, weighing and valve shutoffs available with Arlyn technology.
Arlyn Scales are integrated with smart technology that can feed directly into your computer’s data spreadsheet. You can cut down on storage space by choosing a more efficient data storage and transmission setup. This can save on light and heat bills for your facility.
Our scales communicate with other technology seamlessly including:
- USB (Universal Serial Bus) – This is the most popular option. Users can directly wire multiple scales to their computer, importing data on a Microsoft Access spreadsheet in addition to any compatible software.
- RS-232 – This use of data transfer can print complex labels and work with logic controllers and computers.
- Ethernet – This connection is run through the router to access the scale’s data. It includes a Remote Indicator software that allows users to control the data directly from the scale.
- Wi-Fi – This is a wireless option that is convenient if your scale isn’t in close proximity to the computer.
Examples of Businesses that Could Benefit from a Counting Scale
- Retail Stores – Home improvement stores and businesses that sell a large volume of identical items like jewelry, hardware, office supplies, etc.
This capacity for greater automation may open your eyes to other superfluous expenses and opportunities to streamline your workflow, all of which translates to more money saved.
One of the other benefits of SAW technology is that there is virtually no lag time between the weight and readout. Many people who work in industrial production of any kind know that the work happens at a quick and rhythmic pace. This can be disrupted by scales that are slow to deliver a readout, or irritate employees with inconsistent performance.
Arlyn Scales Can Improve your Inventory Process
Inefficiency can happen at any part of your company’s work, including inventory. Few employees look forward to this chore because it is long and tedious. At times, the effort spent can even feel wasted. However, overstocked items, or an under-stocked necessity can damage your bottom line.
That’s why Arlyn Scales offers counting scales, which can offer the number of given units given a simple calculation involving total weight, and the individual weight of certain unit. This is ideal for bulk uniform items like small parts used in computers and electronics. Essentially, everything that’s most difficult to count can be quantified more quickly and easily with these counting scales. That brings us back to the value of saving time. Increased productivity translates to more revenue. You may be able to cut weeks out of your inventory process using these tools and methods.
