On the 11th February 2019, the world celebrates Inventors Day which occurs on the birth date of American inventor Thomas Alva Edison. Mr Edison held over 1,000 patents for inventions including electric power generation, mass communication, and sound recording. The occasion also coincides with our launch of a new Average Weight System.
At Stevens Traceability Systems, our team of engineers, software developers, and mechanical design engineers continuously develop and evolve the Stevens product range, with the latest evolution being a new Average Weight System.
Designed by Mechanical Design Engineer Tom Clarkson, the new Average Weight System has been designed for manufacturers of goods that are sold by average weight in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. It provides traceability by accurately checking and automatically recording average weight data.
“The introduction of our new range of terminals gave us the opportunity to re-design some of the associated products to simplify manufacturing, assembly and spares holding” said Tom.
Tom designed the Average Weight System to incorporate our new Venture terminal along with a trade-approved weight indicator. Its bespoke stainless-steel design has been fabricated to ensure strength, durability and corrosion resistance with the food industry in mind.
“It’s simple and easy to clean and maintain and provides a sleek yet robust solution” Tom added.
Andrew Wozencroft, Product Development Manager said “Our dedicated average weight traceability system automatically records the weight of the sampled products giving live reporting of the batch statistics and produces pre-formatted reports of the batch. This increases the speed and efficiency of complying with Average Weight legislation and provides central reporting for proof of compliance and traceability for audit purposes.”
