Industrial scale is defining as the large size or amount characteristic of industrial processes. Industrial scales are very flexible device which serve various purposes. The different possibilities to use the industrial scales range from measuring the industrial scale range from measuring the moisture content of samples, to checking the weight of large shipping items. The industrial scales can be supplied with power via rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries or by electric circuit (240V / 12V mains adaptor). Furthermore, the industrial scales offer several features like automatic zero adjustment, a tare function, unit number counting and limit value measurements.
The global Industrial Scale Market is segmented on the basis of type, accessories, application, and region. On the basis of type, the global market is classified into pallet scales, shipping scale, digital postal scales, counting scales, floor scales, and weighing scale. Floor Scales – come in many sizes, and many capacities. Each one of them is rugged, accurate and easy to use. They are also available in stainless steel and corrosion resistant versions. These include weighing goods and materials for calculating shipping costs, scales for counting individual products for inventory requirements and mixing and blending.
Counting Scales – are an effective way of counting components and products with similar weight and are used for inventory purposes, stock taking, packing and commerce. Counting scales allow the operator to count components or piece parts by weight. Pallet Scales – these are essential for regular weighing of pallets in warehouses and factories. The rechargeable battery offers up to 70 hours of continual use and the auto shut-off (30 mins) prolongs battery life when the scale is not being used. On the basis of product type, the global market is classified into wheelchair weighers, organ scales, CA100, P100, and T100S.
On the basis of accessories, the global market is classified into ISO calibration certificates, weighing accessories and different weights. These accessories are used to increase the properties of the industrial scales. On the basis of application, the global market is classified into industries from solid waste to agriculture, petrochemical, food, transportation, retail, pharmaceutical and medical. Geographically, the global market is segmented into North America, China, Europe, Japan, India, Southeast Asia.
