What is the best scale to use in measuring heavy objects?

When measuring heavy objects, the ideal choice is an industrial or platform scale. These scales are strategically designed to handle significant weights, ensuring precise and reliable measurements in industrial environments. 

Industrial scales can deliver accurate readings of substantial loads like raw materials and heavy parcels that surpass the capabilities of typical household weighing scales. 

Choosing an industrial scale ensures peak performance when precision and durability are crucial, making it the favoured solution for various applications, from manufacturing to logistics.

What is the difference between industrial and commercial scales?

Industrial scales or platform scales excel in precision when weighing substantial loads like raw materials and heavy containers, making them essential in manufacturing and logistics. In contrast, commercial scales are designed for more varied retail purposes, like measuring tiny pieces of gemstones or grams of dried or powdered ingredients.

While both prioritise accuracy, industrial scales like our platform scales for sale excel in heavy-load scenarios, ensuring reliability in rigorous industrial environments. On the other hand, commercial scales are more user-friendly and designed to cater to a broad spectrum of businesses, from jewellery stores to restaurants and bakeshops.

What are the different types of mechanical weighing scales?

Mechanical weighing scales come in various types, each catering to specific weight ranges, providing versatile solutions for accurate measurements in different contexts.

Spring scales use a spring to measure lighter items, and beam scales utilise a lever and weights for moderate loads. Meanwhile, dial scales, commonly found in retail, display weight on a rotating dial. Lastly, counterscales use a system of weights and a counterbalance, making them suitable for heavier items.
