  • The Carton Labeller That Suits Most Budgets

    Carton labellers are typically expensive, large and lack flexibility, making it inconvenient for small- to mid-sized companies to acquire them.

    For this, the ScaleMate Touch makes a good entry level carton labelling system without the big price tag.


    The ScaleMate Touch is designed to offer a carton labelling solution to suit most budgets due to its modular and flexible design. It is ideal for wholesalers supplying boxes of fresh, processed or frozen product. It is also a great option for wholesalers and manufacturers who need an industrial barcode with inventory control for traceability. Some of the typical applications include item weight or price label, carton label, pallet label, fresh or pre-packed food label, and stock control and inventory aid.

    The labeller is able to include product specific information with barcode compliance, for example:

    • Use by date
    • Packed date
    • SKU
    • Product description
    • Weight
    • GS1 Compliant barcodes
    • Batch codes
    • Box quantity
    • Consecutive box numbering
    • Storage instructions

    This system can be connected to a variety of Windows-based printers, from desktop for low volume, up to industrial for high volume. With the smart scale interface developed by our IT team, the ScaleMate Touch does not restrict you to a certain brand or size of scale. This allows you to choose your weighing device, from a small micro-balance to a pallet scale.

    The ScaleMate Touch is also scalable to your needs. Whether you are a low volume or high volume user, or whether you need to print 100 or 1000 labels per day, this carton labeller is perfect for every task.

    You can enjoy the flexibility to design your own label formats using the power of Bartender label creation software. Besides giving you control over how your label looks, this flexible label formatting also means the ScaleMate is less expensive to maintain, because you can easily update it yourself instead of having to pay a technician to do the job.

    Other notable features include:

    • Touch screen PC
    • Easy-to-use touch screen operation
    • Modular design, making it easy to upgrade or replace items as required
    • Your choice of PC terminal – you can choose standard or water resistant
    • Remote support available for troubleshooting issues
    • Database redundancy with backup for no loss of data
    • Multiple I/O ports for communication
    • MMI approved for trade use

    If you are looking for a cost-effective and flexible solution to your carton and product labelling needs, the ScaleMate Touch may just be the right option for your business.

    At Able Scale, we also carry a wide range of scales and other products including food processing slicers. Contact us today at [email protected] to find more out.

  • Opt for accuracy with coin and note counting scales

    The desorption kit (Figure 1) consists of a quick-latching Camlock canister and water reservoir connected by small diameter tubing. A sample of material from which gas is evolving is placed in a sample holder which, in turn, is placed in the body of the canister. The camlock lid is locked in place and the accumulating gas increases pressure inside the water reservoir. Water is displaced and collects in a beaker for estimation of produced gas volume.

    Coin scales are easy to operate and fairly versatile, so getting your team acquainted with using it isn’t difficult at all. These scales can handle higher quantities of cash and accurately count them in a matter of seconds, significantly faster than humans. Your business can instead use the manpower in more crucial areas where machines can’t necessarily keep up with human intelligence. Most counting scales are also portable and easy to transport, making them an extremely convenient device.

    Able Scale sells an extensive range of counting scales with varying features, making them a suitable match for different needs and budgets, while also enabling counting with speed, accuracy and ease. All scales are also pre-set to weigh Australian currency, so you can put them to use almost instantly.

  • Case Study: Precision Balance Scales for quality control of injection moulded parts

    We recently worked with one of Australia’s largest pool equipment manufacturers, developing a solution to monitor the weight of the precision injection moulded parts for their pool pumps. The pumps operated automatic chemical dosing for salt chlorination systems, making precision a key requirement in the equipment.

    To ensure the quality control of injection moulded parts, the equipment had to be manufactured on site. The parts were required to be very precise with a small tolerance level as the pumps had to be in harmonic balance to operate the moving parts efficiently and accurately, with the correct dosing of chemicals. In essence, the project required an industrial quality precision, with high accuracy and repeatability.

    The A&D GX Industrial Precision Balance we used here comes with 30kg x 0.1g accuracy, fast response time and a 5 year warranty. It also has automatic self-calibration when a 2% difference in temperature is recorded. This precision balance is also water and dust proof, standard RS232C interface, data memory function, re zero function, multiple weighing units and multiple functions, underhook weighing and a 270mm x 210mm pan size.

    Able Scale offers a wide range of weighing and scaling equipment suitable for domestic as well as commercial use. We also provide a customised service, which means we can help you with custom designed weighing systems, special equipment sizes and more. Get in touch with us today to discuss your weighing needs.
