ISO and Self Verification
Our ISO registration ensures that all of our weighing systems are manufactured to strict quality standards. All of our products are fully QA tested and calibrated by our highly trained engineers and professionally packaged before dispatch.
Our ISO 9001:2015 scope has also been expanded to cover dimensioning equipment and now reads:
The sales, installation, service and repair of dimensioning equipment together with the design, manufacture, assembly, installation, calibration, maintenance and repair of weighing equipment including point of sales equipment and systems together with the making of Declarations of Conformity to Type of Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments together with the requalification of such instruments under the Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments Regulations 2016 (2016 No 1152) as amended.
We believe in providing quality that lasts and where others have moved their manufacturing abroad we pride ourselves on still manufacturing the VW range of platform scales here in the UK, as we have done since 1989. The quality and reliability of the VW platform range is the result of over 25 years of design and manufacturing experience and we still control the complete process from initial enquiry through to the design, fabrication and final weight testing.
We are active members of the UK Weighing Federation and we can provide Calibration Certificates that comply with the UKWF Code of Practice
As well as our UKWF and ISO certified calibration procedure, our ISO registration includes our quality system approval for Self Verification
, allowing us to test and certify Class III weighing scales for trade use here at our factory. Please contact us with your Class III Verification requirements and we will be happy to provide further information and pricing. Click here to download the AWM Verification Service Terms and Conditions.
For our International dealers, or UK distributors who export, as part of our verification process we make the required gravity adjustments to ensure our scales meet all accuracy requirements in the country of use.
For our established distributors we also offer our "Outsourced Verifiers" course which allows them to verify Class III weighing scales under our ISO system.
We were one of the first independent companies to obtain Self Verification status. Our skilled team of verifiers test industrial and medical scales all day, everyday, here at our factory in Bury St Edmunds, certifying scales for use all over the world. All of our platforms use OIML approved loadcells and are designed for Class III approval.
