Minebea Intec

Minebea Intec, formerly known as Sartorius Intec, provides products, solutions and services to industry for increasing the reliability, safety and efficiency of production and packaging lines.  The Sartorius Industrial (Sartorius Intec) products in the Industrial Scale, Tank and Hopper and Inspection product lines joined the Minebea Group in early 2015 and are now branded as “Minebea Intec”.

Minebea purchased all of Sartorius’ industrial scale assets in 2015, including their manufacturing facilities in Germany. Therefore all of the current high resolution industrial scale and weighing products with “Made-In-Germany-Quality” that you are used to from Sartorius will still be made in their German factories and will now be sold under the Minebea Intec brand.  Nicol Scales & Measurement will continue to promote and support these products as a “Preferred Partner” under the Partnership Program. We are also one of two Factory Authorized Warranty and Repair Centers for MI in the United States.

Robbie Jeremy LogoTank Weighing Woes: Why Load Cells have a Bad Reputation and What Needs to be Done to Fix itNovember 1, 2016

Many manufacturing facilities currently have load cells installed in tank systems that are no longer operational. Most of the times the load cells are left in place and the electrical cables connecting to the controls are simply cut. Production Managers, QC Managers, and maintenance personnel alike have surely encountered “that tank” or “vessel” which never […]

Load Cells for a Portable StructureNovember 1, 2016

During a measurement, weight acts on the load cell’s body and causes elastic deformation.  The body has some spring constant. This strain (positive or negative) is converted into an electrical signal by a strain gauge installed on load cell. Read more about load cells here.

Robbie Jeremy LogoLoad Cell Application and Test GuidelinesNovember 1, 2016

A load cell is a device that is used to measure weight or force. W hen a force is applied to it in a specific manner, a load cell produces an output signal that is proportional to the applied force. One end of a load cell is typically supported on a rigid structure while the […]

Slope’s Effect on Accurate WeighingNovember 1, 2016

The scale is designed with the assumption that the load will be parallel to the direction of gravity and perpendicular to the weighing platform; meaning, there is only a vertical force. An uneven balance or scale causes the introduction of a horizontal force which affects the weight reading. The general rule of thumb is that […]

Foreign Body DetectionNovember 1, 2016

For several years, production in the food, beverage and tobacco industries has become increasingly automated. This is due to larger production volumes, increasing demands on quality and higher costs. However, even in a well-managed, automated and mechanized food, beverage and tobacco industry, contamination of end products during production cannot be completely ruled out. It’s possible […]

How to Weigh Portable Tanks AccuratelyNovember 1, 2016

In order for a portable tank system to have high system accuracy, it must have a rigid foundation that does not flex or bow, regardless of external influences. Realistically speaking, no system is perfectly rigid, but a system that limits its amount of flex will increase its chances of having higher system accuracy. Portable tank […]
