RHEWA: Years of Experience – Proud of Their Tradition

As an owner-operated company now in its fourth generation, RHEWA has developed and manufactured industrial weighing systems at its location in Mettmann, Germany, since 1904. Its focus is on the metalworking, food, pharmaceutical, and chemical companies as well as the entire logistics sector. Thanks to the company’s 110 years of experience, high standards of quality and innovative project solutions are guaranteed.


The “heart” of every scale is the indicator that RHEWA develops itself – from the circuitry to the layout – in addition to the entire steel structure. The software for the various weighing and communication functions is programmed in the company’s own in-house software department. This means easy access to the development team if a project requires customization.

RHEWA offers different indicators for a wide variety of applications and fields of use, which can be adapted to the respective performance requirements through additional software and hardware options. In this context, user-guided weighing processes – such as counting functions for individual weights of articles as light as 0.05 grams, with corresponding labeling and data communication via Ethernet to the customer’s own ERP system – are only one of many possible tasks. In addition, an important market for RHEWA is weighing and picking of SLCs and pallet target weight and overload checking in the intralogistics sector.

When it comes to the development of its indicators and weighing terminals, RHEWA has worked in a collaborative partnership with Rutronik as a key electronics supplier for more than 20 years. Continuity and a focus on always finding the right solution – even when the electronic components need to meet new demands – as well as the excellent availability of the parts, like LEDs and ceramic capacitors, together form the foundation of this outstanding business relationship.
