Hanging Scales & Crane Scales Help

Q: How do hanging scales work?

A: Hanging scales measure the weight of objects by attaching the object to a hook that pretrudes from underneath the weighing device. Once secured, hand-held hanging scales can be lifted by the handle located above the device in order to weigh the object whilst suspended in the air. The weight of the object is then shown on the hanging scale display.

Crane scales operate on the same principle, however are often used to weigh much heavier loads. As a result qualified warehouse operative may attach large objects such as crates to hook using sturdy lengths of rope bound around the object. Once secured, the user must allow a safe distance away from the weighin area and use the remote control operation to carefully suspend the object. The total weight can be located on the crane scale display.
