  • 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.

  • Choose the right baby scale for precision and quality

    One of the most crucial moments in the healthcare industry is when newborns have to be monitored and supervised to ensure they are coping well with their new environment.

  • Using the Ishida Uni-5 Labelling Scale for a more efficient retail industry

    A busy retail butcher shop was looking for a competent system which could handle both retail POS and back room labelling, while also being fast enough to handle a busy store with multiple operators. The problem was solved by using an Ishida Uni-5 Labelling Scale with cash drawers, that was capable of producing prepack labels, labels for point of sale, and customer receipts with floating operators.


    The butcher specialized in selling meats for roasting and they had a large refrigerated display cabinet with all the roasts on display of various weights, shapes and sizes. These roasts were not pre packed and the butcher would get numerous requests each and every day with customers asking ‘how much is that one, or that one, or that one’. The butcher would then need to weigh the meat, advise the price and then the customer would say ‘oh no that’s too expensive, how much is the smaller one’, or ‘how much is that one’ etc. This process was both time consuming and frustrating for butcher and customer alike.


    By utilising the features of the Ishida Uni-5 labelling scale, the new process let the butchers and staff pre weigh, pack and label the roasts and then place them in the display cabinet with the price clearly showing for each piece of roast. Eye catching logos and graphics were printed on the labels to catch the customer’s attention. A secondary label was also attached to the roast with cooking instructions for the customer. The use of the optional secondary label was also able to produce savings on label costs. The bigger the label the higher the cost, so as this butcher did not require information such as ingredients or nutritional panels, it was more cost effective to produce two small labels, instead of one large label.


    The ability to use floating operators also meant that staff could weigh and add sales on one scale, move to another section of the shop, weigh more products for sale at a different scale and finalize the sale. By using the floating operator feature, customers were able to be served quicker, and the staff happier to use a more efficient process, with less operator errors.


    The Ishida Uni-5 series scale does labelling and price computing, supported by a modern touch screen technology. The large touch screen allows for easy, user friendly operations and programming. Labels or receipt paper can be loaded from the side, while the scale can also print barcodes and more. The scale doubles up as a marketing tool too by featuring space for a logo and a greyscale customer display for advertising specials and products. Other features of this scale include dual range weighing, wireless communication, 77 tactile keys on the keyboard and 4MB memory further enhancing its utility. The Uni-5 series is available in a bench model, pole display model and an elevated keyboard model.


    Able Scale specialises in a wide variety of industrial, medical and label printing scales, in addition to cash registers, software and food equipment. Contact us today to discuss your weighing scale equipment needs.
