All scales, which are integrated into a production line, are part of the process scales category. The operation is adapted each time by selecting or adjusting special scales and components.
Planning and project management are correspondingly complex because all stages of the process, data exchange with upstream systems and the associated controls must also be planned.
A short overview of typical process scales and possible components shows how complex this subject is. The process scales category includes, for instance:
- Weighfeeders, subdivided into filler scales and filling scales
- Discharge scales
- Hopper scales
- Multi-component scales
