Avon Cosmetics is a global beauty company that sells cosmetics, fragrances, and personal care products. The company has a significant online presence and ships orders to customers worldwide.
Avon Cosmetics‘ previous system for packaging online orders was inefficient and error prone. The system manually weighed each package and compared the weight to a predetermined weight. This process was time-consuming and prone to human error.
ZF Associates developed a customized checkweigher system for Avon Cosmetics that automates packaging weigh checking. The checkweigher system uses a barcode and a logic device connected to the panel, with a touchscreen interface That shows the package’s barcode weight and actual weight and then calculates the difference to determine if the package is underweight, overweight, or approved. Then, the tower lights flash the appropriate color depending on the package weight range.
The ZF Associates checkweigher system has helped Avon Cosmetics improve its packaging review process’s efficiency and accuracy. The system has also reduced the manual labor required, freeing employees to focus on other tasks.
Since implementing the ZF Associates checkweigher system, Avon Cosmetics has seen the following results:
- Reduced packaging review time by 50%.
- Increased accuracy of packaging by 99%.
- Reduced the number of human errors by 95%.
- Freed up employees to focus on other tasks.
The ZF Associates checkweigher system has been a valuable asset to Avon Cosmetics. The system has helped the company improve the efficiency and accuracy of its packaging process while reducing the amount of manual labor required. As a result, Avon Cosmetics has improved its bottom line and provided better customer experience.
The ZF Associates checkweigher system was enhanced by adding the following components:
Rinstrum R320 indicators: Displays the weight of the package. It sends signals to the logic device to compare the actual and barcode weights.
Roller Platform: Made of stainless-steel rollers and is part of the conveyor belts.
Load cell: This sensor measures the weight of the p package.
Barcode: Reads the weights of the items; every package has a separate weight, and each barcode has its weight.
Logic device: Receives signals from the indicator and barcode to calculate which packages are within weight range and which are not.
Tower light: Indicates whether the package is overweight, underweight, or within the correct weight range.
“The ZF Associates checkweigher system is a reliable and accurate way to automate packaging. The system is easy to use and can be customized to meet the specific needs of any business.”
