Quality Control

I used to have a lot of concerns about our product quality. Were the boxes overfilled or underfilled? The last thing we need are customers complaining about missing items. At the same time, I know overfills and product giveaways impact profitability.

When we added Hardy Caseweighers, I finally felt I was in control. With Hardy, I know the boxes have the right number of products and are the correct weight so we aren't giving away products.

Overview

Reducing the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)

For most manufacturers, achieving optimal manufacturing efficiencies while maintaining high product quality is the goal; but often a choice is made to err on the side of overfulfilling on their promises, even if it means accepting extra costs. While overfilling can reduce the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) by preventing underweight or under-count product from being delivered to customers, it comes at the cost of manufacturing efficiency.

Relying on overfilling is especially common for manufacturers that do not inspect every package but instead rely on random or intermittent inspections and Statistical Process Control (SPC) to reduce the risk of shipping underweight or under-count product

The Hidden Costs of Quality Control

Did you know the cost of one defective product is 15X to 18X the cost of the product*

The hidden costs of quality can be up to 15-25% of total costs.*

100% Product Inspection not only reduces overfills but can also eliminate missing pieces from products. 

Hardy Caseweighers make it fast and easy to detect missing components or overfilled cases reducing customer complaints

Fastest Calibration

PROCESS WEIGHING CALIBRATION

Did you know you can calibrate a scale without test weights as accurately and just as quickly?

If you’ve thought that using test weights is the only way to calibrate a scale, you’ve been misinformed.

Our customers have installed over 150,000 pre-calibrated Hardy C2® load cells under their silo, tank, platform, and bench scales.

Our customers complete their calibrations up to 4x faster

Our customers have made the task 7x safer for their employees

Our C2 load cells are 2x more reliable. They expose mechanical problems while traditional calibrations hide problems

Our customers have reduced the time their scales are unavailable for production between 38 to 51%

Fastest Diagnostics

PROCESS WEIGHING DIAGNOSTICS

Did you know a scale can diagnose itself faster and more reliably than any scale technician can?

If you’ve thought that contracting a scale technician is the only way to diagnose a scale, you’ve been misinformed.

Our customers have installed over 110,000 Hardy self-diagnosing weight processors or controllers with our integrated technician (IT) and web server technology on their silo, tank, platform, and bench scales.
