All business owners regardless of the industry they belong to, need an accurate and reliable scale for weighing purposes. With a variety of scales available in the market, it does become difficult to decide which scale is best suited for one's industry. But the overwhelming opinion is in favor of the floor scale.
For one thing, Counting scales are versatile in the sense there is more than one way to load and unload goods. One of the best known ways is to use a forklift. You simply need to place the items to be weighed on the loading area of the scale. The scale then weighs the items and displays the exact weight on the LCD screen. People who do not have a forklift can consider smaller floor scales that come with little ramps that run off the side of the unit.
Floor scales do not generally occupy much floor space. Even bench scales have their own demerits. Floor scales, usually occupy only about 10 square feet of space but provide accurate weights and speedily. A floor scale has an adequately large base with a low center of gravity. Thus floor scales are safe for placing heavy objects. As a matter of fact, some of the latest units have on-board digital computer to facilitate data analysis after the weighing is over. Most floor scales have a large, user-friendly graphics LCD readout screen and a powerful data communication feature.
Industrial Floor Scales have a number of important key features including the platform size, platform capacity, accuracy, durability and cost. The low base design, rugged construction and modern day electronic features of the digital floor scale make it the ideal choice for the industrial applications - particularly where rapid weighing is essential. In heavy industries weighing can be a very time-consuming operation and the floor scale is terribly helpful to speed up operations. Further, the man hours spent towards loading and unloading materials on the scale are reduced considerably when a proper platform scale is used.
