Floor scales are one of the most critical measuring instruments for every manufacturing or distribution operation. These devices weigh and measure a facility’s ingredients, components and products, sometimes having the ability to weigh items over 50,000 pounds. Industrial floor scales are much more durable than a typical weighing instrument because they need to withstand constant movement and the significant pressure of heavy and bulky objects.
Depending on an operation’s unique needs, floor scales can perform various functions, including measuring properties like volume, density and pressure. Many instruments have features to help maximize process efficiency, including automatic data logging and wireless capabilities.
Basic floor scales are limited to measuring weight and typically hold items up to 20,000 pounds. Heavy-capacity floor scales accommodate much larger masses and include bolt down plates for load cell feet or load cell lower receiver cups to handle objects exceeding 50,000 pounds. High-precision floor scales are ideal for operations requiring minimal division sizes with tight tolerances.
