Guide to Gantry Cranes for Weighing Solutions
When you need to weigh heavy materials, you can’t just pick them up on your own and place them on a scale. Instead, you’ll need a crane with a high… Read More
In manufacturing and distribution centers, floor scales facilitate the weighing and measuring of ingredients, components, and products. These heavy-duty devices are designed to withstand the pressure of bulky and massive items being dragged or pushed across their surfaces throughout the day. Some models include options such as additional resistance to the stresses of harsh environments, automatic data logging, or wireless capabilities. Many industrial floor scales also measure density, pressure, volume, and other important parameters.
Floor scales are an integral part of a wide range of industrial operations. Industrial floor scales make monitoring for quality control, coordinating weights for shipping and logistics, and a variety of other measurement-based operations easier.
There are a number of different types of industrial floor scales.
Each type of industrial scale is best suited for a particular purpose or line of business. Some models include additional capabilities to allow for a wider range of industrial measurements.
Selecting the appropriate industrial floor scale for your operation will largely depend on the unique requirements of your application. Ask yourself the following questions to determine your requirements:
If you rely on forklifts and pallet jacks to maneuver your loads, opt for U-scales and similar devices that make it easier to place loads into the proper position.
For remote operations or smaller companies with limited space and resources, portable industrial scales allow flexibility.
High-precision floor scales facilitate high-accuracy measurements for industrial operations that use chemicals, food ingredients, and other reactive components.
Besides the floor scale itself, take into account the space needed for ramps and moving pallet jacks or forklifts. Choose a more compact model such as a U-scale if you can’t commit the space for larger units.
Food, medical, and cosmetics manufacturers and researchers are better able to maintain sanitary conditions with lift scales.
Corrosive materials, caustic atmospheres, moisture, and abnormal temperatures can compromise your scale’s functionality. Choose a hardier model that is designed with materials that resist corrosion and physical damage, such as stainless-steel lift scales.
In industrial operations, choosing the right floor scale is essential. The wrong equipment can limit your ability to produce superior products, compromise the safety of your facilities, and/or increase the risk of accidents or compliance issues.
