Press Release Summary:
By weighing each part before and after coating process, Excellence XA Balances calculate mass of layer, and can be connected to PC with Direct Balance software for calculations on Excel spreadsheet. For various counting applications, balances utilize piece counting application built into XA firmware, which accommodates reference weighing and statistics. Traceability is ensured through ID entry via alphanumeric touchpad or barcode reader and printer connected via RS232 or Bluetooth interface.
Original Press Release:
High Precision Weighing Ensures Quality of Coating Processes
Controlling coating processes in the mechanical industry requires high precision weighing and often in harsh environments. The robust new Excellence XA precision balances perfectly meet these demands and offer a highly competitive price-performance ratio.
Reliable quality control of coating processes
Checking for a uniform coating is a process in the mechanical industry which requires highly accurate balances. This quality control application demands robust and easy to use balances. METTLER TOLEDO's new Excellence XA balances are the ideal solution and offer a unique price-performance ratio.
Determining the mass of precious coatings requires a high level of accuracy. Each part is weighed before and after the coating process and the mass of the layer is calculated as the difference. Optionally, XA balances can be connected to a PC thanks to the Direct Balance software package and therefore facilitating calculations on an EXCEL spreadsheet. The XA line also features analytical balances which offer a higher level of accuracy required for more demanding R&D applications.
Convenient and secure piece counting
Apart from supporting a coating process, XA balances are also ideally suited for various counting applications. Producers of small components, such as suppliers to the watch making industry, need to count the number of parts in order to portion them prior to packaging. Springs, wheels, cogs and other delicate components typically weigh below 10g each. The high precision XA503 balance can be used as a reference to determine the individual weight of one component. The bulk quantity of parts is then placed onto the high capacity XA32001L balance where the weight is expressed as the total number of parts on the weighing pan.
A dedicated piece counting application is built-in to the XA firmware to accommodate reference weighing and statistics. Shortcuts can be defined on the balance's touch-screen to simplify daily operation. Traceability is ensured through easy identification entry via the balance alphanumeric touchpad or a barcode reader and a printer connected to the balance by means of the RS232 or Bluetooth interfaces. For higher flexibility, or for networking, the weighing platforms (e.g. X404DR and X64001L) can be connected to METTLER TOLEDO IND terminals.
