Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP) recently awarded METTLER TOLEDO the Good Design Award for its ultra-compact WMC high-precision weigh module, which is now designated with the award’s G Mark label. This designation is recognized globally for innovative design.

The Good Design Awards are a system that aims to channel the eminent powers of distinctive designs to build prosperous lives and encourage sound industrial development, according to JPD. A jury of about 60 design experts fielded more than 3,000 submissions from more than 1,000 companies globally in this year’s competition.

The WMC is an ultra-compact electronic balance. It can be integrated in a small space for high-precision weighing with an accuracy of 10 micrograms. It can also easily be arranged to arrays with multiple units for parallel weighing to increase throughput.

According to the evaluators, it boasts a simple design with a rectangular column housing in stainless steel, which conveys a sense of high precision and the design may inspire machine designers when creating new solutions for automated processes.
