Precise floor scales for industrial applications

Floor scales are used in various industries and applications to carry out precise weight measurements of heavy or bulky goods. These include, for example, the food industry, agriculture or warehouses and logistics centres, where the exact quantity of incoming or outgoing goods is determined. However, industrial floor scales are also used for checkweighing and completeness checks, for classifying, sorting and counting or for checking stock levels, production quantities and the statistical control of production processes.

We have a large selection of floor 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 floor scale solutions that are precisely tailored to the requirements profile 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 advise you on the selection of the right floor scales

Taking into account requirements for 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. 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 scale can communicate seamlessly with existing devices.
