We were recently contacted by APC NexDay Overnite regarding an issue they were having weighing multiple items of varying sizes. Taylor, our weighing equipment expert came up with the perfect solution - a super sized platform scale.
"The Salter Brecknell WS500 Platform Scale which has a much larger surface area than our last scale has enabled us to be incredibly more efficient when it comes to weighing our customer’s parcels. Due to the sheer size of the platform we’re able to place a consignment on the scale, which may be made up of numerous items, as opposed to weighing each individually" said Ian Fox, Director at Nexday Overnite.
The WS500 Light Capacity Platform Scale provides a low cost solution for general purpose weighing of any item up to 500 kg capacity. a 1 part in 5000 resolution these platform scales give a weighing performance of 500 kg x 100 g.
These well designed low profile machines incorporate four full load bridge loadcells with self levelling, anti-slip feet to give a solid base in use.
The WS500 has a tough, mild steel understructure and a stainless steel top. 5 metres of cable connects the base to the stainless steel indicator pod which features clear 17 mm high LCD display digits. A plastic display pod bracket is included to enable the indicator to be wall or bench mounted.
Key display features are - on/off, push button tare to enable container weights to be removed and net weight only displayed; kg/lb switching to give readings in either metric or imperial measures and hold/print, which allows the weight to be either frozen even when the item being weighed is removed or the weight to be transmitted to a printer or other peripheral device.
The scales feature auto zero tracking to automatically compensate for small fluctuations in zero such as a build up of material on the platform. To extend battery life an auto-off feature is standard, with the scale switching itself off after 2 minutes of inactivity.
Suitable for use in warehouses, despatch and light industry.
"When purchasing the scale I had a look through Scalesexpress which was really easy to use and highly detailed in the specifications it offered on each and every scale. I also had a couple of further enquiries with regards to the scale and delivery and so I called Scalesexpress and spoke to a member of their team. Taylor was highly knowledgeable about all of the products they had for sale and was able to answer all of my queries in full putting my mind to rest."
