The Scale People are proud to provide and maintain weighing equipment for pharmaceutical manufacturing and related fields.

Weighing Equipment in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical manufacturing involves developing, creating, pricing, and packaging medicine and supplements. It involves extensive research, development, and critical testing to create the drug at hand. Throughout all of these steps in pharmaceutical manufacturing, different weighing equipment is necessary for providing accurate measurements. Balances, pipettes, load cells, moisture analyzers, verification test weights, and material testers are only some tools of the trade. 

Precision is Key

As mentioned above, precision, accuracy, and repeatability is key to getting the right results. Each step in the process may require a different type of measuring device. Moreover, each device should have a preventative maintenance schedule to help equipment stay in optimal working condition. By maintaining equipment with a calibration schedule, it will ensure accuracy and help to extend the overall life. Calibration is generally performed manually by a certified company or an internal meteorology group.
