The engineering, machinery and equipment manufacturing industry has many potential applications for products and solutions that Minebea Intec supplies, which may be easily integrated in further engineered machinery or processing plants. Process integrators and machine manufacturers in various industry sectors can benefit from the precision, hygienic design, corrosion resistance and ingress protection offered by Minebea Intec equipment.
A wide product range is available, for example, for applications in hazardous environments and high wind or seismic conditions. The equipment is easy to install, commission and operate. In packaging lines high-sensitivity dynamic checkweighers and inspection products ensure product safety in terms of target weight and foreign body contamination.
A reliable partner for quality control and process equipment for the engineering, machinery and equipment manufacturing industry
Minebea Intec has many years of experience in the development and manufacturing of innovative production and quality assurance equipment for weighing and foreign body detection purposes. Much of this experience has been in machinery and equipment manufacturing industry applications, where quality control plays a vital role in ensuring product safety and quality while also maximising the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of production processes.
As a reliable partner of machinery and equipment manufacturers around the world, Minebea Intec invests heavily and constantly in testing and certification in accordance with various national and international standards and regulations, such as
- for materials and rpoducts: EHEDG / FDA / HACCP / IFS / EAC / AAA / NSF / BRC
- for conformity standards: CSA / UL 508A / CE / EAC
- for Ex applications (explosion protection): ATEX / FM / CSA / IECEx / EAC
- for calibration : OIML / NTEP/ MID
- for ingress protection (IP): up to IP69k
- for manufacturing: Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP)
We are thus well prepared to meet the widely varying needs of machine and equipment manufacturers, whatever their product or field of activity – and, of course, to provide the associated quality documentation that might be required for any project.
Applications of our products
Checking of incoming materials
Ensuring that all materials that will be used in the production process are in weight and quality exactly as ordered is the first step in production quality control. If not, the integrity of the entire manufacturing process is at risk before it begins, and the quality of the end product is already jeopardised.
Minebea Intec has everything needed to check incoming goods and stored materials for weight content – efficiently, reliably and fully compliantly with applicable quality and safety standards.
Weighing and metal detection equipment for the production process
Minebea Intec’s weighing solutions are designed to be seamlessly integrated into modern production processes, whether manual or fully automated. The product range includes bench and floor scales and process vessel scales which are available for hygienic applications and with digital assistance technology.
Various types of weighing terminals can be supplied for each type of scale. All equipment can be easily calibrated,. The state-of-the-art solutions ensure process and product safety, e.g. in relation to explosion protection, and offer the precision and reliability required to ensure the quality of the product and the cost-effectiveness of the manufacturing process.
Weighing and checking during the packing stage
Minebea Intec’s weighing solutions are ideally suited to meeting the needs of manufacturers in their packaging operations, ensuring that the product leaving the factory will satisfy customers’ expectations. Systematic recording of the details of all production steps can be transferred into the company’s quality control system and provide invaluable information in the event of a customer complaint or a product recall.
Final weighing before delivery
Once products have been packaged, they can be stored until required and then transferred to Goods Out for delivery to customers. Here, reliable control and documentation of the product transfer is important for commercial and risk-avoidance reasons. Minebea Intec’s wide range of weighing solutions covers every such application, efficiently and reliably. In some cases, it may be most efficient to weigh an entire delivery truck, before and after loading with collected goods, so appropriately sized, very robust truck scales may be called for.
Our products and solutions in the mechanical engineering industry
Silo and process vessel weighing solutions
Our silo weighing solutions can be applied to silos of all sizes, to meet a wide range of precision requirements, and may be supplied for Ex applications, hygienic environments and windy or seismic conditions.
Our floor scales are designed for high-precision weighing of loads ranging from 3 kg to 3000 kg, and can be supplied for connection to a weighing terminal or directly to a customised control system.
Truck scale components and solutions
Our truck scale components are extremely robust and reliable, being designed to withstand severe loading from heavy road vehicles, but offer a very high degree of weighing precision.
