Weigh beams, also known as weigh bars, consist of two separate weighing bars connected via cables to a weighing indicator. These are designed to be portable and are more flexible than your standard platform of pallet scale.
Weigh beams make weighing those awkward or oversized items easy, as you can move the weigh bars apart to suit your applications. Weigh beams can also be easily moved around your site instead of staying in a fixed position. Due to their compact design, weigh beams are a great option for work areas with limited space.
What are weigh beams used for?
Weigh beams are designed to be placed under platforms, crates, crushes, and other similar loads. As such, they are often used under cattle crushes for the weighing of livestock, under trolleys for weighing on-the-go, under crates and even hoppers or silos.
They are also ideal for weighing odd shaped items that do not fit on a standard 1200mm x 1200mm pallet scale.
Weigh beams are also suitable for trade approved situations, if they can be permanently fixed to a location and certified in that location.
