Grammage checking is a fundamental aspect of quality control and plays an important role in maintaining superior standards across various industries. With meticulous grammage checking, manufacturers can ensure consistency and precision throughout their production lines. By measuring the grammage of raw materials at different stages of production, potential variations or defects can be swiftly identified and rectified before they compromise the final product's quality. Thus, to ensure that the grammage of the materials will easily be checked manufacturers of the paper industry can easily make use of the grammage-checking machines that include GSM balance and GSM round cutter.

This is easy to operate lab testing machine and is designed by the experts at Testronix is lightweight and provides precise calculations for measuring the grammage of materials.

In this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about GSM checking machines and how you can easily perform quality checks on materials with Testronix GSM checking testing equipment. But before, we will discuss the need of testing grammage before product delivery.

Need of testing grammage of products before delivery

Grammage checking is an indispensable aspect of quality control in various industries, ensuring that products meet the desired standards and specifications. Whether it is paper manufacturing, packaging, or textile production, maintaining consistency in grammage plays a pivotal role in delivering top-notch results. You can read more on the importance of calculating GSM in the packaging industry.

Testing the GSM of different materials is important to determine the strength of materials and guarantee accurate product delivery to the customers. Using accurate and high-quality lab testing equipment is necessary to ensure that accurate products will be delivered to the customers.

GSM weighing balance is one of the crucial lab testing instruments that can accurately measure the product quality and weight when multiplied by 100 will provide you with an accurate GSM value of the sample being tested.

Now, let us discuss a brief about this weighing balance.

Conduct precise measurement of GSM with grammage weighing balance

A GSM weighing balance is a highly versatile and efficient lab testing equipment used in various industries, particularly in the textile and paper sectors. It plays a crucial role in determining the weight of materials per unit area, enabling precise measurements for quality control purposes.

The GSM which stands for grams per square meter is the fundamental unit that this weighing balance operates with utmost accuracy. This testing instrument employs advanced technology and features such as digital displays and stable weighing plates to provide reliable results every time it is utilized.

Its sleek design and user-friendly interface make it convenient for operators to utilize without any hassle or confusion. With its ability to measure a wide range of materials, from fabrics to papers, the GSM weighing balance proves indispensable when analyzing production consistency or evaluating material efficiency within manufacturing processes. You can easily utilize this lab testing equipment to calculate the GSM of fabric and get highly accurate lab testing results.

How to use a GSM checking machine?

Using a GSM checking machine may seem daunting at first, but once you understand the process, it becomes quite simple. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use a GSM checking machine effectively.

  • Ensure that the machine is set up correctly and calibrated according to the manufacturer's instructions. This ensures accurate readings and reliable results.

  • Take the sample and place the material sample onto the platform of the GSM checking machine, making sure it covers the entire area evenly without any wrinkles or folds.

  • Once your material is in place, close the lid securely to prevent any external factors from affecting your measurements. The lid also helps create an optimal environment for precise calculations.

  • Now it's time to initiate the measurement process by taking the cut specimen and then it on the GSM weighing balance. At the time of measurement, make sure that the weighing balance should be properly labelled.

  • Multiply the value showing on the GSM weighing balance display by a factor of 100. (E.g. here the display is showing 0.75, so it will be 75 GSM)

In this way, you can easily test the GSM of the materials. If you want to know more about weighing balance for GSM then you can give us a call at +91 9313140140 or email us at Our team of technical experts will assist you regarding all your needs and queries.
