Weigh it up! Learn more about digital weighing platforms and their advantages

In the industrial and commercial sectors, weight is closely-related to price. Therefore, weighing machines are vital in both these arenas. Frequently, even before a product is put on the shelf for sale, the manufacturing includes various processes, such as mixing or combining materials and masses measured by their weight.


The first weighing machines after the balance scale were spring scales that came into use approximately two hundred years ago.Traditionally, mechanical weighing systems comprise an assemblage of hinges and bearings transmitting the load to a beam that connects to a mobile weighing arm or spring. Typically, these devices can accommodate up to 1000 kg. However, because the many parts mechanical scales comprise, they are prone to measurement inaccuracies, including friction errors.


Having said this, over the past decades, weighing machines have made great strides. In today's digital world, weighing systems include digital platforms based on electronic intelligence. These systems offer ultra-precise load cells, LCDs, as well as various measuring and comparison tools. These properties hold many advantages over the traditional mechanic systems.

Therefore, when deliberating over which weighing system is the right one to purchase, there are two foremost questions to answer. The first is how accurate the system needs to be, and the second is how much automation the process requires? If the process is automated and precision is a top requirement, the best bet is a digital weighing system. For more information about weighing machines, click to contact us.
