High-precision bench scales for industry

Bench scales are scales that can be placed on benches, tables or work surfaces. Bench scales are used in a wide variety of areas and applications, whether in the factory floor production area or in laboratories: wherever small quantities need to be weighed with high accuracy. This can be the case for checkweighing and completeness checks, for dosing, classifying, sorting and counting or for checking stock levels, production quantities and the statistical control of production processes.

We have a large selection of bench scales including all accessories such as weighing indicators, printers or barcode readers. Thanks to our comprehensive service approach - from the initial consultation to commissioning and maintenance - we can provide you with bench scale solutions that are precisely tailored to the requirements of your specific application: from conformity-assessed to hygienic to EX-certified. The result is highly precise and reliable measurement results, at any time and for any requirement.

Everything from a single source

We provide you with all components for weighing on the bench from a single source - be it the table scales themselves, weighing indicators or accessories.

We advise you on choosing the right bench scales

When selecting a suitable bench scale, requirements for the device such as the weighing range, resolution or reproducibility of results as well as physical characteristics such as the material of the scale play a role. External factors such as external interference or process requirements also place additional demands on an industrial scale. Choosing the right interface is also essential to ensure that the bench scale can communicate seamlessly with the existing devices.

What readability is possible with the bench scales?

The bench scales from Minebea Intec are characterised by high resolution and precision to enable accurate weighing in various applications. The readability varies depending on the model and configuration of the bench scale. Some models offer readability in the milligram range, others offer coarser readability for applications with higher loads.

The Combics® bench scale, for example, offers fine readability in the 0.1 g range and is therefore particularly suitable for applications with small samples. For even more accurate weighing results, the Signum bench scales or the IS weighing platform are available. However, the exact readability depends on the specific technical characteristics of the selected bench scale model.
