Our range of crane scales includes both electronic and mechanical, for any application that requires suspended weighing. Crane Scales are heavy-duty scales used for the suspension of large or heavy items. They offer a safe and accurate method for overhead weighing. They are an example of hanging scales which are used to weigh bulky items, and they are usually suspended from cranes or other machinery. Able Scale has both, compact hanging scales as well as, heavy load-bearing crane scales as part of its inventory.


Applications Of Crane Scales

The noticeable difference between crane scales and other hanging scales is their specific capacity and cost. Hanging scales are used for lighter weighing tasks and tend to be less expensive. With its light weight design, the CAS IE1700 crane scale is designed to be portable and easy to use. Crane Scales, on the other hand, are more equipped to deal with heavier weighing tasks and are also, more costly. This is why they are often used on ships, planes, and trains to ensure bulky cargo is moved and cared for properly, as well as in foundries and warehouses. Knowing the weight of a load is crucial when transporting large amounts of freight as the weight of the goods has a direct impact on the safety of the people handling it.

What Are Other Advantages Of Crane Scales?

Crane Scales are very useful to move around big and awkward loads which are often encountered at transport hubs, construction sites and warehouses. They also help free up workspace by lessening the amount of forklift traffic within the workplace. By taking on heavy loads, crane scales create more free space for forklift operations, which results in less chances of accidents. The CAS Heavy Duty Crane Scale (Caston II) is a trade approved crane scale designed for industrial environments.

Most crane scales are easy to park, with no special storage needs, except if they are digital versions, where you may need to keep them away from water to avoid damage to the reading unit. Digital versions like the H Digital Hanging Scale also make it easy to measure and read the weight, thus saving manual cross-checking and time consumption. This time saved can be spent on other productive activity. 






How To Choose The Right Crane Scale?

Before purchasing a crane scale for your organisation, keep in mind the following factors:

  • The average load capacity of the crane scale. This is directly linked to the weight of the objects you want to load. This is crucial because if the maximum weight is exceeded, it can cause injury or even damage to your workplace. The Caston-III series comes with a swivel hook and can lift up to 10,000 kgs.
  • Ease of use is also an important factor to consider while picking a crane scale. Pick a version that is easy to handle, with scales that allow easy reading of the weight measurement.
  • Precision and accuracy are also vital since it can affect safety and expenditure.
  • Finally, consider the work environment since some models work better in certain temperatures or conditions.
