We support and service your measurement equipment through its entire life-cycle, from installation to preventive maintenance and calibration to equipment repair.
Yes, even the best floor scale for sale can be wrong. The process of determining if a scale is providing accurate weighments is called calibration. Calibration is a process that compares the performance of the scale to a mass of a known quantity to determine if the scale is weighing within tolerance (accurate). Even the most accurate commercial floor scale can be off without an operator knowing it, making calibration of industrial floor scales and other types of scales very important.
The best floor scale to buy is the one that meets the needs of your application. This may be a combination of requirements such as accuracy, the typical load to be weighed, and where the floor scale will be placed and used. For example, if you wish to use your floor scale in applications that require accuracy, METTLER TOLEDO offers the PFK989 floor scale. However, if you do not need the highest accuracy but instead require a combination of accuracy, intelligent use and robustness, the PowerDeck PFD779 floor scale may be a better choice.
To determine if your large floor scale or basic commercial floor scale is weighing accurately, schedule a calibration procedure with a certified technician. Calibration compares the performance of the scale against a mass of a known quantity. In between calibrations, a check with a certified test weight can help you determine if you are still receiving accurate results. METTLER TOLEDO offers a series of safe, easy-to-use industrial test weights based on your application needs.
Yes, a digital scale can be calibrated. Calibration is the only process that can provide assurance that the weighing results provided by a given instrument are accurate. Calibration is typically performed by a certified technician.
For a floor scale, a test weight is used to calibrate the span and linearity of the scale. It is also used to adjust corner-load error. This is accomplished by adjusting the relative trim pot in the junction box.
The manual that came with your floor scale can tell you how to reset your digital scale. There is no standard method for resetting a floor scale.
On a floor scale, only electro-magnetic force restoration (EMFR) technology is able to register a weight as small as 1 gram. METTLER TOLEDO’s PFK989 floor scale, which uses EMFR load-cell technology, is able to weigh 1 gram. A weight scale for heavy weight may or may not be able to weigh smaller quantities. Please check the scale description for resolution and other scale specs.
Many different materials are measured in grams, such as jewelry, diamonds, precious metals, and expensive or rare ingredients in formulations.
Yes, we can offer a floor or bench scale up to 300 kg. All scales are digital or electronic, find our full portfolio on our website.
Typically, our floor scale weighing readout is stabilized in about 2-5 seconds based on the typical operation of loading material onto the scale platform.
No, we currently do not offer such scale. But we can create customized scales designed to absorb vibration. Please contact our local sales reps to see about a floor scale configuration that will meet your needs.
Yes, we can offer PFA579, PUA579, 2888, PFD779 floor scales to weigh the IBC tank or pallet.
We offer different floor scales in different price ranges and aim find a solution to fit nearly any application. Please contact our sales reps in your local area to find the floor scale that is right for you.
This capability is not available directly from the floor scale system; however, by adding one of our terminals with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capabilities you can connect to your system or device. See more about our floor scale for sale options.
however, you can purchase a printer that offers this capability and connect it to our terminals. See more about our floor scale with printer options. We think that you will find our floor scale with printer options meet your application needs.
Yes, METTLER TOLEDO offers many terminals with Ethernet/IP connection such as IND570, ACT350, and IND331. Please check the terminals and select the right one based on your application.
Generally, METTLER TOLEDO offers scales that can weigh from 600 g to 12,000 kg in readabilities from 0.01 g to 2 kg. Please let us know what you intend to weigh and we will help you determine the scale that meets the needs of your application.
Yes, nearly all METTLER TOLEDO weighing terminals can connect to a central file using a serial connection via a WeighSync server. Please check the terminal you are considering to learn more about its capabilities.
