Forklift scales (fork lift scale) instantly speed up pallet weighing processes - a common goal in any industry as companies strive for improved productivity and revenue recovery. Designed for challenging industrial environments, METTLER TOLEDO’s forklift scales strive to maintain the highest level of accuracy in an atmosphere that is complex and busy.
Forklift with scale
By allowing employees to weigh while on the move, fork lift truck scales dramatically increase loading and transporting efficiencies. A forklift weight scale has a scale built into the forklift, allowing the scale to weigh cargo using sensors in the hydraulic system. This provides a great advantage to workers who transport materials and need to know how much of a product is being loaded. Forklift scales also benefit the bottom line - reducing the costs of cargo loading and shipment. Forklifts, which in general weigh 1.5 to 2 times the lifting capacity of the forklift, provide a useful tool in transporting large shipments of product. Having an accurate weighing scale to measure that product is important for reliability and accuracy, which is why industries should only rely on precise forklift scales. Regardless of environmental disturbances, METTLER TOLEDO forklift scale systems retain calibration for 12 months.
Scale for forklift
The unique three-point scale suspension ensures that results are accurate, repeatable and legal-for-trade, reducing the expense and hassle involved in frequent re-calibration. Designed for safety and uptime, our forklift scale systems can withstand an overload of 150 percent, and have undergone extensive testing to prove their mechanic safety and durability. A high-visibility window and a compact scale indicator also makes it easy for the forklift scale operator to see loads, position forks for lifting and avoid accidents. If you’re worried about the time it takes to install a forklift scale, rest easy. In less than 30 minutes, installation is completed thanks to the unique forklift scale attachment design, without affecting its warranty. The robust design also provides an easy maintenance schedule, reducing the need for service. When needed, however, service is made easy by the ability to slide the scale off the bracket. Save time with forklift scales by reducing the need to travel back and forth to a fixed scale, as well as reduce the wear and tear on your equipment from increased travel.
How to use fork truck scales?
Lift truck scales are easy to use because they are simply the addition of a scale to the fork truck prongs - making it efficient to weigh on the go.
How do forklift scales work?
Forklift scales are hung on to the front of a forklift truck. The pallet weight is recorded the instant the pallet is picked up by the forklift truck. Weight data is merged with the pallet ID and transferred wirelessly to invoicing and warehouse managements systems. Forklift scales offer a cost effective, efficient solution to weighing pallets in freight handling processes.
How much can a forklift lift?
Our forklift scales can accurately weigh pallets up to 3,000 lbs or 1,500 kg.
