What Is A Bench Scale?

Types Of Bench Scales

What are bench scales?

If the weighing task at hand requires mobility and convenience, then chances are a bench scale may be the ideal solution for the job! As the name suggests, bench scales are specially designed to sit neatly on worktops, table tops, and benches thanks to their compact form factor and small physical footprint.

Versatile and durable, bench scales are one of the most diverse category of scales, with an option for almost any application in most every setting. This includes price computing scales and electronic and digital weighing scales boasting capacities as small as 150G, or as high as 30KG.

Where are they typically found?

Bench scales are a mainstay in the daily operation of businesses spanning a variety of industries including: 

  • Farms
  • Hospitals
  • Chemists
  • Mailrooms
  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing
  • Research & Development
  • Food Processing & Retailers
    • Delis
    • Fish Markets
    • Bakeries
    • Breweries

Are they easy to install?

Bench scales remove the need for difficult, prolonged installation processes. In fact, their lightweight design means they're easy easy enough to carry, relocate, and set up in a matter of seconds. With less time wasted? They maximise efficiency while requiring minimal operator effort, speeding up the process, increasing profitability, and reducing room for operator error.

Perhaps the environment calls for ingress-protected scales for harsh, wet operating environments? Or maybe the precision of a trade approved scale? Whether it’s mixing, counting, checkweighing, or anything in-between, you can rest assured that there’s a high-quality bench scale available for the task that’s built to last.
