Platform Scales

Heavy duty platform scales with digital readout indicators provide long lasting operation in industrial applications such as materials handling, shipping and receiving, and manufacturing.

Platform floor scales allow you to weigh items without requiring excessive heavy lifting, and are useful for weighing large industrial objects such as heavy crates and boxes. Smaller platforms can be used for weighing post, parcels and packages in offices and home businesses, whilst larger platform scale models can be used for pallet weighing in warehouses or weighing scrap metal and plastics in recycling plants.

Some platform scales and floor scales use parts counting and LED checkweighing features that allow you to pack produce such as fruit or vegetables into crates that are then checked against a pre-set weight, depending on whether the product is the correct weight or not, the LED lights will then flash green or red.

Platform Scales Help

Q: What are some of the typical applications of larger platform scales?

A: Designed for durability, larger platform floor scales offer a wide range of features including diamond-patterned steel plate platform surfaces, oversized weighing pans that allow multiple products to be weighed simultaneously, and large weighing capacities up to 3000kg.

Some of Adam Equipment's large platform scales can be connected up to weight and counting indicators for improved weighing applications including parts counting, checkweighing, accumulation and percentage weighing.

In the case of larger platform recycling scales, you will need an NRCS trade approved platform scale when selling scrap metal and other items by weight.
