When you invest your resources into an electronic scale with portability that includes a parts count feature, you actually help your business be more efficient and profitable. The reason is simple.

When you add one of these machines above to your inventory process, you minimize errors and increase productivity since an employee is able to quickly confirm all the inventory.
The smallest item a scale can count is dependent on the minimum piece weight. Calculating the minimum piece weight can be done in different ways and can be quite complicated...
But, a very simple and effective way to estimate this is to multiply the manufacturer’s recommended readability by five. This will give you a close estimate of the average piece weight the scale should weigh within.
As an example, to estimate the average minimum piece weight of a typical 60 pound capacity counting scale with an analog cell, displayed resolution of 30,000 divisions and stable readability of 60,000 divisions (0.001 lb.), you would use the following: 0.001 x 5 = 0.005 lb. Now compare that to a 70 pound capacity ZK830 scale from Avery Weigh-Tronix with displayed resolution of 100,000 divisions and stable readability of 3,500,000 divisions (0.00002 lb.), the estimated average minimum piece weight is 0.00002 x 5 = 0.0001 lb. This is the smallest recommended item each of these scales can count within the accuracy bounds selected.
While calculating the average minimum piece weight is useful to customers, on highly accurate counting scales with high internal resolution such as the ZK840, the piece weight can be calculated using the minimum sample size that will always guarantee the accuracy the customer has set within the scale.
On the ZK Counting Scales, the minimum sample weight can be easily calculated by using 0.01% of the scale’s full base capacity for dribble counting or 0.02% of the scale’s full base capacity for bulk sampling. This means that a on a 70 lb. scale, the scale can accurately calculate a pieces weigh with 99.75% accuracy by using a minimum sample weight over 0.007 lb. This minimum sample weight could come from a sample size of 5, 10, 50 or more pieces.
