Different Types Of Weighing Scales

Did you know that when it comes to using scales for commercial purposes, you have more options at your disposal than you may expect? At Able Scale, we are proud to offer business owners and operators a wide range of products that can help you handle your unique needs more effectively and efficiently.

Depending on your particular business or industry, having the ability to weigh products or price items based on their mass can help ensure that you are charging the right price and moving the right amount of products.

However, not all scales are built and designed to function in the same way. By understanding the various styles of weighing scales available at Able Scale - and the ways that they are designed to operate - you can make better informed decisions when shopping for your next scale.

Scales measure weight, which is a measurement of how much the force of gravity acts on a given amount of mass. Gravity varies slightly all over the Earth, so while a piece of coal may have the same mass, its weight will vary based on its location.

As the Earth is not a perfect sphere the strength of Earth’s gravity on its surface varies a bit from place to place.

So how does this affect my scale you ask?

In practical terms once a weigh scale has been calibrated in its location then gravity is no longer relevant. But what if the scale has been manufactured and calibrated in China, shipped to a Distributor in Tasmania and then sold to an end user in Townsville.
