Electronic weighing platforms, also known as pallet scales or pallet weighers, are used to weigh pallets, skips, containers and all manner of items in industry. They range, normally, from 300kg to 10,000kg with platform sizes ranging from 800mm square to 2000mm square.
A well designed platform constructed from heavy duty materials, with good quality components, will provide highly accurate results and years of service, even though it is loaded by a forklift truck on a regular basis.
There are different designs to suit a particular application; surface mounted platforms or ones that sit on the ground are the most commonly used and are loaded usually by a forklift truck.
Below ground or the platform flush, with the surrounding floor level, have the advantage of being able to be loaded by a hand pallet truck and a sack truck as well as a forklift truck.
Below ground installations can also be designed, with consideration to point loading, to weigh a forklift truck and its load at the same time.
There are also surface mounted, very low profile scales, that can weigh a hand pallet truck and its load simultaneously.
Depending on site conditions and the type of industry, the platform can be manufactured from mild steel with tool steel load cells for dry areas or all stainless steel with IP68 fully weld load cells to allow full wash down ability, even with high pressure hoses and cleaning chemicals.
Platforms can be approved for trade use to allow selling of material by weight, to conform to current regulations.
