Counting Scales - Industrial counting scales for any application

In industrial environments, mistakes and inaccurate information can be costly. Using a parts counting scale or count scale is a simple and fast way to determine the numbers of parts in receiving, warehousing, production or shipping, as you can see from the counting scales reviews for our industrial counting scales.

If parts are counted inaccurately, it can mean overfilling orders and therefore excessive costs, unstable production processes and a damaged reputation. Industrial counting scales calculate the weight of a group of uniform items placed on platform scales. A count scale or piece counting scale can then compute the average piece weight. They do so digitally by using a component called a strain gauge. A strain gauge can be used to measure the amount of force that is exerted on an object. An electronic counting scale can also take into account the tare weight, which is the weight of an empty container that may be holding the uniform parts. The electronic counting scale then subtracts the weight of the container from the overall weight of the goods.
