Hanging Scales

Hanging scales are light industrial weighing devices offering small weighing capacities, lower prices than other suspension scale varieties. They tend to be used regularly for weighing small to medium items such as grain sacks, bags of produce and feed bags for animals in agriculture and farming.

Certain types of hanging scale can also be used to weigh fish for recreational purposes by attaching the below balance hook through a fish's gill plate. This allows the fish to be weighed securely with minimal harm.

Scaletec offers a range of suspension hanging scales that are ideal for education, recreational and agricultural use. If you need assistance choosing the right hanging scale please contact us.

Q: Why use a hanging scale?

Hanging scales are versatile weighing machines ranging from pocket sized spring scales and balances to heavy-duty, industrial crane scales. Some lightweight hanging scale varieties such as the MIF are mechanical and do not require power mains in order to use and therefore lend themselves better to weighing tasks while on the move.

Mechanical hanging scales are usually cheaper and more robust than digital varieties. They can be used in school classrooms or warehouses without the risk of damaging the balance, or dealing with electrical mains and cables which may prove hazardous in small or busy environments.
