What Is A Platform Scale?



WHAT ARE PLATFORM SCALES?

Weighing scales are rarely a one-size-fits-all solution. Literally. Depending on the weighing task at hand, a variety of scale types and sizes may be required. That’s why when Kiwi businesses need to weigh large items like pallets, drums, or crates, they turn to Platform Scales.

Platform scales provide substantially larger weighing surfaces than a typical Bench or Balance scale, ranging from 350 by 450mm (MP series) all the way to 1,500 by 1,500mm (MF series). Pair this increased size with a highly durable design, and you have a scale that’s specially engineered to stand up to the toughness of heavy-duty tasks day-in, day-out.

Don’t let the size and scale fool you. Platform Scales may boast a heavy duty appearance, but this belies a weighing scale that’s easy to set up, install, and maintain. The low-profile design often sees them sunk into benches or floors, enabling forklifts / pallet trucks to weigh items with ease, while the addition of a detachable display makes remote operations a cinch.
