Bench Scale for maximum efficiency in industrial applications
1. What is a bench scale?
A Bench Scale, commonly referred to as a Bench Top Scale, table top weighing scale or Compact Scale – is a small scale that can fit on top of a work station or 'work bench', hence the name Bench Scale. Electronic bench scales are used for smaller weighing needs and more intricate processes, where the operator needs to be closer to the scale itself. Bench scale applications range from mixing, weighing, counting and checkweighing. Our bench scale and portable scale portfolio offers solutions from high-resolution bench scales and bench scales for wet and harsh environments to bench scales for dry and dusty environments. METTLER TOLEDO offers portable bench scales, a digital bench scale, and bench scales with ingress protected up to IP69k for heavy wash-down processes to suit any industrial environment. Boasting small footprints and capacities from 0.6 to 600 kg and verified resolution of up to 60,000e, METTLER TOLEDO bench scale offerings provide you innovative weighing functions for maximum efficiency with less operator effort.
2. What is a bench top scale used for?
Use an industrial bench scale or a portable weighing scale for fast and accurate weighing, mixing, counting and checkweighing speeds up your process and increases profitability. Whether you require a hygienically designed bench or platform scale to ensure easy and thorough cleaning and minimized cross-contamination risk or a high-precision benchtop scale or platform scale for sophisticated applications where the best accuracy is required, we have a scale to meet your needs. Many of our digital bench scale and portable scale solutions offer the ability to tailor it to your needs. Make it yours and get the most out of your digital bench scale investment.

3. Do bench scales require installation?
Forget about difficult installation and long set-up times with our bench scales. They are versatile, ready-to-use weighing machines for a broad range of applications and environments, designed with your needs in mind. Bench scale testing includes calibration of the bench scale. This can be performed at the time of installation and throughout scale life to ensure accuracy in production. Bench scale testing on commercial bench scales can be performed with test weights owned by the operation, but should also be periodically performed by a service technician. The bench scale up process for a new facility involves the installation of one or many digital bench scales, depending on the application and need. Contact our service experts for more information on industrial bench scale or benchtop scale installations.
