Using Robotic Comparators in Mass Calibration

Robotic placement of wire weights onto the weighing pan using weight carriers with hooks.

Calibrating a weight of unknown mass requires comparison to a known reference. It’s not as simple as it sounds, however, particularly when manufacturing weights or establishing metrology standards. During manual calibration, everything from an operator’s body heat to an open lab door can subtly shift results. Robotic mass comparators not only eliminate forces that disrupt weighing, they significantly improve processing speed—often with fewer personnel. Read the full article >>
