What are industrial scales used for? What industries use scales?
Our line of industrial scale systems and scales for weighing support a wide variety of application possibilities to fit any need. Our weighing scales and industrial commercial scales can be used for simple weighing, legal-for-trade weighing, counting, mixing, filling and dosing, and many other manufacturing or logistics processes.
High-precision floor scales ensure excellent weighing in warehouses and logistics centers, while compact and/or portable bench scales make quality weighing available in smaller work areas and a wide variety of weighing applications.
Hygienic and Ex designs allow METTLER TOLEDO bench and floor scales to be used in a variety of industrial settings, whether your application requires ingress protection for heavy wash-down or intrinsic safety to mitigate explosion risk. Industrial weighing solutions available in durable plastic or stainless, mild or painted steel mean there is a METTLER TOLEDO bench, platform or floor scale for nearly any industrial weighing scale need. We offer a range of precision weighing scale price options to ensure that quality weighing is accessible to all.
Bench, floor and other industrial scales from METTLER TOLEDO are available for use in chemical, pharma, food, OEM, transport and logistics, manufacturing, mining, and more. Regardless of application, METTLER TOLEDO can offer you a scale out-of-the-box or create a custom precision weighing system to meet your industrial weighing requirements.
What are the types of weighing scale?
There are many types of industrial weighing scales including bench scales, floor scales, sensors and load cells for precision weighing systems, pallet scales, dynamic weighing systems, all the way up to truck scales.
Within each category of scales, there are analog and digital models that each have their own benefits. Analog weighing scales are typically more cost-friendly scales that provide measurements for applications such as simple weighing, counting, formulation or recipe weighing, mixing, batching, and filling and dosing. Digital weighing scales support these same applications but offer higher precision and stronger noise immunity to deliver reliable results in challenging industrial environments. To go one step further, POWERCELL® technology eliminates the need for a junction box in your scale or weighing system to further enhance weighing accuracy and offers condition monitoring capabilities to ensure process visibility and long-term performance of your industrial weighing solutions.
Does the weighing procedure have to be verifiable?
Your internal company requirements and relevant industry regulations will determine if your weighing procedures require verification. METTLER TOLEDO offers Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) Verification, which documents the measurement uncertainty of weighing equipment under real operating conditions and delivers documentation to help ensure you are prepared to pass any audit.
What level of accuracy is required for your weighing purposes? How accurate are the industrial weighing systems?
Your internal quality requirements and relevant industry regulations also determine your process accuracy needs and tolerances. To determine the level of accuracy required, you must know the legal tolerances and your own process tolerances, which are defined in the table below. Then, you compare those requirements to the manufacturer tolerances that are specific to the equipment you are considering.
Legal tolerances stipulated by OIML R76 or NIST Handbook 44 (US only) assess legal for trade requirements.
Manufacturer tolerances ensure that equipment meets manufacturer specifications. Manufacturer tolerances do not consider user specific process requirements, and are therefore unsuitable for improving the weighing process.
Specific process tolerances defined by the user that support process improvements and savings on material, waste and rework. For scales in a legal-for-trade application, process tolerances should be applied in addition to legal tolerances.
METTLER TOLEDO's Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) Verification ensures that all your balances and scales meet your own accuracy requirements and adhere to quality standards such as ISO, GMP and GLP. Our trained weighing professionals can help you determine the best-fit device to fit your application needs and recommend test weights and routine services that will ensure continued accuracy of your industrial scales and systems.
What should I look for when comparing scale manufacturers?
When searching for an industrial weighing scale online, you will likely find a variety of industrial scale manufacturers offering scales for sale. Industrial weight scales and micro weighing scale solutions are a key part of your production area and should be accurate and reliable. The best industrial scale manufacturers can answer your tough questions and offer product demonstrations to ensure that their industrial scales will meet your demands.
Which are the best weighing scales?
Thanks to weight scale industrial producers, weighing technology has come a long way in the last 100 years. Digital weighing technology and POWERCELL® technology offer superior accuracy to older analog technology. The primary advantage in terms of accuracy is that POWERCELL® technology in particular gives you a window into your weighing so you know when problems arise before they can impact accuracy. This decreases operating errors and downtime for many types of industrial scales.
Why are we the leading industrial scale company?
METTLER TOLEDO is known for its premium quality, high-precision bench, pallet, floor and specialized mechanical weighing scales and digital scales. Scale manufacturers come and go, but we have been providing industrial scales for sale for more than 75 years.
Whether your application requires you to weigh in milligrams or tons, METTLER TOLEDO has a solution to fit your needs. We offer a range of robust industrial scales—including bench scale, pallet scales, rail scales, tank, floor scales and customized specialty scales—that can create the highly accurate, reliable results your application requires.
METTLER TOLEDO also offers Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) Verification, which documents the measurement uncertainty of weighing equipment under real operating conditions. This establishes that scale performance satisfies process and quality requirements and documents the measurement range in which equipment can achieve reproducible results. We are the only weighing scale company to offer this program. However, it is applicable to the product of any weighing scale company.
How to calibrate an industrial scale?
Periodic calibration can help ensure that your industrial weight scale measurements deliver the kind of cost, quality and revenue results that help improve profitability. GWP Verification from METTLER TOLEDO provides all necessary information for lifetime calibration and testing. This includes test methods, intervals, weights, tolerances and SOPs. Scale service is available for all non-automatic weighing equipment regardless of brand or model.
Typically, calibration is performed during a maintenance service visit along with weighing scale/weighing scales inspection, cleaning and adjustment. When using the right procedure and scheduling, calibration and maintenance can help you avoid unexpected downtime, reduce repairs, achieve process performance, improve quality, ensure compliance, avoid product giveaway, and more. This is important for both digital scale/digital scales and non-digital scales. All industrial weight scales benefit from calibration so that they can provide accurate industrial weight scale measurements.
What is the warranty of our industrial scales?
The standard warranty for our industrial scales and systems is 18 months from shipment or 12 months following installation. METTLER TOLEDO Service offers an ExtendedCare package to extend warranty coverage for 24 months and cover additional expenses including inspections and cleaning, adjustments, spare parts, and more. This ExtendedCare option helps to ensure uptime, cost control and continued performance.
