The Speaker:

Dave has been with Mettler Toledo for 23 years, including many years spent as a lab service technician and service manager.  Dave is now Mettler Toledo’s Global GWP Service Consultant.   His primary focus is facilitating Mettler Toledo’s Good Weighing Practice (GWP) program, which has been developed to minimize weighing uncertainty and to guarantee each weighing device is not only calibrated, but appropriate for the weighing application that it is being used for.  Dave has had extensive training on the weighing chapters within the USP/NF.  His training on uncertainty in mass measurement enables his work with many METTLER TOLEDO customers in different industries to assure best practices in: weighing processes, assurance of quality products, minimization of waste and achievement of business goals through accurate weighing.

METTLER TOLEDO is a global manufacturer and marketer of precision instruments for use in laboratory, industrial and food retailing applications.   https://www.mt.com/us/en/home/site_content/aboutus/business_description....
