Industrial scales: versatile solutions for precise production processes Learn how to use industrial scales efficiently for control, dosing and order picking, among other things.

Whether for checkweighing, completeness verification, classification, sorting and counting by weight or dosing: our industrial scales can be integrated at almost all points of the production process. Our static industrial weighing solutions include bench scalesfloor scales, flat-bed scales, pallet scales and weighing platforms.

We have both highly sensitive industrial scales for measurements of 0.001 g and very robust weighing systems with which you can weigh several tonnes. Optimise your industrial weighing solution by equipping your industrial scale with one of our advanced weighing indicators and one of our software solutions.

How do you choose the right industrial scale?

Requirements on the device such as the weighing range, resolution or the reproducibility of results as well as physical characteristics such as the material of the scale play a role in the selection. Likewise, external factors such as external interference or process requirements place additional demands on an industrial scale. The choice of a suitable interface is also essential so that the scale can communicate seamlessly with the existing devices.

FAQ

How do adjustment, calibration and conformity assessment work for industrial scales?

A large number of Minebea Intec's industrial scales have a built-in calibration weight circuit. This allows the accuracy of the scale to be checked at the touch of a button without an additional test weight.

The sensitivity of the scale is also adjusted simply by pressing a button. To ensure traceable weighing results and compliance with legal requirements, we also offer calibration and conformity assessment (formerly verification) of scales as part of our services. Our competence in this field is evidenced by the following certifications and accreditations:

  • Certificate on the recognition of a quality management system according to 2014 / 31 / EU for non-automatic weighing instruments
  • DAkkS accreditation for the calibration of non-automatic weighing instruments according to DIN EN / ISO / IEC 17025
  • DAkkS accreditation for calibration of weights from 1 mg - 1000 kg according to DIN EN / ISO / IEC 17025
  • Certified QM system according to DIN ISO 9001
