Bench Scales

Bench Scales

Bench scales are among the most popular weighing instruments globally because of their versatility and flexibility in handling many applications. Depending on the operation, these devices have different housing styles and platform sizes capable of performing tasks in various industries, from small e-commerce operations to large manufacturing plants. They can provide efficient production and highly accurate measurements despite their relatively small size.

What Is a Bench Scale?

Bench scales get their names from their ability to be installed on a bench, counter or workstation tabletop. Most bench scales have a small footprint with structural designs specific to a particular application. Some scales can perform several functions, while others feature designs specialized to a single task, like counting or check-weighing.

Economical bench scales with basic designs can accurately weigh objects as small as a few pounds, while more industrialized instruments can accommodate oversized items in more demanding applications. Operating systems can vary from hydrostatic to electronic, with frame options ranging from stainless, galvanized or carbon steel materials. Bench scales serve a comprehensive industry range, including grocery, manufacturing, mail order, pharmaceuticals and chemical processing.
