Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- What Is A Bench Scale?
Choosing a Bench Scale that fits your business’s bench top doesn’t have to be difficult. Learn more about the compact, lightweight design and what you should be looking for when weighing up your options.
ARE TRADE APPROVED OPTIONS AVAILABLE?
If you plan on using a Bench Scale to package or sell items by weight in New Zealand, then law requires that you use a Trade Approved Scale. That’s why our range includes a number of scales that have been approved for trade, including the MPB Precision Balance, GW-Check Weighing, as well as the AP and GP Series Price Computing Scales.
WHICH BENCH SCALES ARE BEST SUITED FOR WET OR WASHDOWN ENVIRONMENTS?
When weighing wet or sticky materials, weigh scales are bound to get messy and, in turn, require cleaning. That’s why we provide a range of IP65, 66, and 67 rated Stainless Steel Bench Scales that are ideally suited for wet or washdown environments in the food, pharmaceutical, and veterinary sectors.
WHAT IS THE BATTERY LIFE LIKE?
Businesses relying on a scale to meet the demands of daily weighing operations need a battery to match. Our selection of Bench Scales boast a variety of power-saving features, with rechargeable batteries (up to 70 hours per charge in the MW Series) that increase portability and make operating sans power sources a cinch.
WHAT ARE THE MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM WEIGHING CAPACITIES?
From lightweight tasks to real heavy lifting, our scales are up to the task. The MW Series, for example, features models capable of 3, 6, 15, and 25kgs respectively, through to a more significant 8 to 120kgs with Adam Equipment’s GBK and GFK Scales. For smaller, more precise weighing, check out the MPB Precision Balance series which offers ranges of 150 through to 6000 grams.
CAN THE PAN SIZES HANDLE A VARIETY OF OBJECTS?
Weighing capacity is just one factor, size is another. You’ll find Bench Scales here that are ideal for most small to medium-sized weighing tasks, with pan sizes ranging from 120mm diameter in our MPB Precision Balance series, through to the MC Piece Counting’s more sizeable 300mm x 230mm.
