  • (1888PressRelease) September 11, 2012 - Mettler-Toledo India, a wholly subsidiary of Mettler-Toledo Inc (NYSE: MTD), has launched its newest service, GWP® Verification, in India to help improve manufacturing quality and lower quality control costs. GWP® Verification virtually guarantees better weigh results, lowered equipment-testing expenses, and enhanced final product consistency through a systematic, expert assessment and benchmarking of balance performance.

    METTLER TOLEDO's GWP Verification assesses the performance of weighing equipment to ensure accuracy. A one-time investment in preventive maintenance lowers quality control costs and improves balance performance year after year. Better weighing - and the quality it brings - can even enhance final product consistency, brand reputation and sales.

    GWP Verification helps ensure peace of mind. Many companies do not know whether their weighing instruments actually meet day-to-day accuracy requirements. Furthermore, many manufacturers either test balances too often or not often enough. Quality suffers; balances repeatedly fail appraisals. Testing costs skyrocket as operators struggle to make improvements in the absence of reliable data and guidance.

    "GWP® Verification of METLER TOLEDO is designed to ensure greater balance performance and it can play a very significant role in the cost control initiatives in the Indian manufacturing industry," said Mr. Pravin Jain, GM Laboratory, Mettler-Toledo India. "With the right test weights, test types and test frequencies, testing across all a manufacturer's balances is optimized to deliver the highest quality results on a consistent basis."

    With GWP Verification, however, weigh results become more accurate. Using a fit gap analysis, METTLER TOLEDO experts measure a manufacturer's balance performance against accuracy requirements as well as the standards of the balance's original equipment manufacturer. Experts then review current quality management efforts and balance testing regimens.

    GWP Verification uncovers if a customer's current tests and testing schedule can ensure accuracy by assessing current performance versus ideal operating standards. If they cannot, METTLER TOLEDO metrology experts make recommendations that establish helpful weight classes, safe-range nominal values and effective testing frequencies.
    METTLER TOLEDO CarePacs® are one strategy used to lower ongoing maintenance costs. CarePacs allow a manufacturer to purchase only the weights required for routine testing instead of more expensive sets. Once weights are up for recalibration, cost savings solidify. Proven METTLER TOLEDO SOPs enhance employee productivity, too.
