The stainless-steel enclosure is very robust and withstands extreme mechanical stress and aggressive media. The protected, dirt-repellent design without gaps or edges allows its use in food processing, production of pharmaceuticals or packaging of building materials, because the load cell is easy to clean and liquids roll right off.

Z6R reduces downtime and guarantees precise weighing in harsh environments, regardless of whether it is used in packaging machinery or batching scales. A real benefit for scale manufacturers and system operators!
