Material savings are achieved through accurate panel weight control

Too-high panel weight is result of too-high material input. Too-low panel weight will reduce panel quality.

EWS supplies robust weighing systems of high accuracy. The data will be shown on digital display or on PC monitor.
PANEL-SCALE also will automatically evaluate the board density by incorporating the data from the thickness gauge THICK-SCAN.

Alternatively a continuous non-contact board scale CONTI-SCALE is available. This system also shows the weight distribution lengthwise and crosswise the production. This modern solution requires a gap of only 335mm [13.2"] in the conveying system.
