Things to consider before buying an industrial scale

Before deciding to buy a weighing solution for your company, you should consider some aspects, namely:

Installation – most BARBAL ® Industrial scales are prepared to be installed above the ground or pit mounted, leaving you to choose the option that best suits your business.

Material – depending on the environment where the platform is to be placed and the product to be weighed, BARBAL ® scales offer options such as industrial painting, AISI 304 or 316L stainless steel or hot-dip galvanization to perfectly adapt to any situation.

Plate dimensions – it can be customized, but generally the standard dimensions of industrial platforms’ plates are from 1000x1000mm up to 1500x1500mm.

Indicator – you must assess whether you want it with a touchscreen, with its own intuitive software, alphanumeric keyboard, etc. It is important to analyze the one that best suits your resources.

Maximum weight capacity – each BARBAL ® industrial platform model is strictly designed for a specific maximum weight capacity. However, in addition to customized structures, we can also design scales with a maximum and minimum specific weight, according to your needs.

Division – it is another aspect to consider. Usually, in this type of scales the division can vary between 100g and 1kg, depending on each model.

Ramp – the ramp facilitates the entry and exit of instruments that we use to facilitate the transport of the product that we are going to weigh. Many scales come equipped with a ramp, you can always request a second one.

Shock absorbers – the shock absorbers, that can work on gas, facilitate the lifting and lowering of the plate and are very important for the safety of users, preventing them from being accidentally trapped.

Piece-counting function – this function saves you much time in weighing processes.
