Industrial Counting Scale

Counting Scales - Industrial

Industrial counting scales typically means that the item is built tough to handle the work load that a warehouse might throw at it. A good example of an industrial counting scale is the Pennsylvania 7600 series or the A&D FC-i series. All Pennsylvania Scale counting scales feature heavy duty cast construction, premium load cells, and bright LED display. Utilizing the PLUS+ series Main Board technology, these products are designed to be user-friendly and highly productive, provide long accurate service. Pennsylvania Counting and Weighing scales and indicators are intentionally clean by design. These 7000 Series products feature 1:16 million internal counts, with 10,000 displayed weight graduations. Some of these are easier to consider as portable than others. That depends greatly on the power source and actual physical weight of the scale. In our opinion, A&D builds a really good counting scale as well. In fact we have offered the FC-20K to our rental customers for years decades.

Long Term Investment Vs. Continued Purchases

One of the real interesting events that takes place every year is the challenge that a business faces when it comes to purchasing a scale to count parts on. Once you get past manual counting by hand and realize that takes forever, you then realize parts counting scales are the way to go. Counting scales ensure high accuracy and inventory control.

As a business you really have several choices for counting inventory. But what is the right counting scale for you?  You can purchase a parts counting scale from a material handling catalog. You can purchase a lower cost, mostly plastic electronic scale. Or you can buy a high end parts counter that we would refer to as "industrial tough" with various weight capacities available.

First we'll take a look at the material handling catalog. There are several issues with this. First, in most cases the catalog sales associate knows next to nothing about the part counting scales. All they really know is the part number and the price. By the way, this can also be true on the material handling websites as well. The scale construction is usually very cheap as well, with most of the product being made of plastic. Next, we'll look at the low cost option. Now these can work very well for some individuals. However, if you're in an industrial environment there is a good possibility that an employee might drop the scale or drop something on the scale etc... If that happens, the chances are the low cost option will not withstand the abuse. Finally, we have the industrial counting scale. In most cases these parts counting scales are made of a combination of cast iron, plastic, and a stainless steel platter. The cost is usually a bit higher but in most cases these scales can last for many years of service.

Counting Scales for Inventory Management

So, which do you choose for your inventory management systems? We have customers who have bought industrial scales over the years and we have customers who have chosen to go with low cost option. Both strategies do work, especially if the customer takes care of the low cost option and doesn't abuse it, but overall the customers who purchase the "industrial" scale tend to save time and keep their scale(s) much longer and have better overall total cost of ownership. Contact us (919) 776-7737 and we can work with you to get the best scale for the money, whatever your particular situation and specific needs are.
