Platform Scales Help

Q: What are platform scales?

A: The term platform scale is used to describe weighing scales that include a larger platform surface than standard digital scales. Platform scales have a durable, sturdy construction and are often categorised as of bench scales or table top scales if used on a worktop or workbench surface, or floor scales, if used on a warehouse or factory floor. These scales are highly-versatile and have higher weight capacities and pan sizes than typical digital scales; they are frequently used in manufacturing, engineering and construction applications.

Q: Which are the best platform scales for general warehouse use?

A: Platform scales come in a variety of forms, therefore the best platform scale for your needs may be subject to multiple factors:

  • 1) Size - How large are the products you need to weigh?
  • 2) Capacity - How heavy are the objects you need to weigh?
  • 3) Features - What weighing features do you need? (e.g parts counting for check counting tools, parts and electical componenents or checkweighing for ensuring that pallets of products all weigh the same).
  • 4) Cost - How much are you willing to spend on a scale?
  • 5) Environment - Is the scale suitable for your surrounding environment? (e.g choosing a large PT platform when you work in a small, crowded factory space may prove unsafe. Similarly, buying a scale without significant waterproof protection to use in a water treatment plant may risk causing damage to the internal components of the scale).
