Calibration & Testing

ISO certification and similar quality standards matter in manufacturing and scale calibration. Our technicians perform calibrations using strict tolerance thresholds, resulting in scales that measure with precision. We can calibrate scales on a regular basis or as part of a one-time maintenance engagement. We are here to serve our clients and meet their specific needs.
  • Our calibration procedure is governed by NIST Handbook 44
  • Don’t stress your next audit with honest and accurate Scale Calibration Certificates
  • We use test weights that are traceable back to NIST
  • Our test weights are third party certified
  • ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Calibration services available
  • Custom test requests available beyond Handbook 44 standards


  • Routine maintenance is done on every scale during a customer’s calibration. Scale is leveled, weigh pan is cleaned/cleared of any physical binds, any potential issues are reported.
  • 24 hour emergency service is available As long as parts are available we can get any scale back up and running again. Even some discontinued scales we are able to get parts for.
  • Our entire service department can account for 60 years of troubleshooting experience.

Benefits of Preventative Maintenance

If your scale is down, you could be losing money. Industrial scales play an important role in many business processes and should be kept in peak condition. This helps to ensure your scale is reliable and accurate.

Performing preventative maintenance on your industrial scale should be a routine part of your operation. Without regular service, your scale could be inaccurate. Proper maintenance ensures the scale is operating within regulatory requirements. Regular maintenance helps you save money and time.

Maintaining your scale helps you achieve a high return on your investment over the lifetime of the scale. It helps reduce downtime because the scale won’t be out of service. Proper maintenance also helps ensure the scale is performing correctly, is compliant with all requirements, and is accurate. When your scale is down, you lose money, so properly maintaining your equipment actually saves you money in the long run.

Additionally, when you perform preventive maintenance on your scale, you keep it running correctly. This means you won’t have to replace it as often. Regular maintenance provides you with consistent, accurate results, a longer scale life, and safe, reliable operations.

No matter what type of industrial scales you have, it is important to make sure they are properly maintained to keep the scale, and your business, running smoothly without downtime.

Bench Scales

Bench scales are compact, industrial scales excellent for high accuracy in demanding environments. These scales offer solutions that are ideal for areas where space is limited but fast, accurate readings are necessary. They are often used in quality control, digital counting applications, parcel shipping, factory filling, and similar applications.

Counting Scales

Counting scales are digital scales that are used to count a large quantity of items very quickly. Typically, users enter product details like the “Average Piece Weight” (or a sample) of an individual unit, and the scale uses this to compute a count of parts based on the total weight.

Crane Scales

Crane scales are scales designed to weigh items lifted by a crane. There are a wide variety of these types of scales, but large crane scales are typically designed to weigh heavy loads. This is particularly handy when loading freight for shipping, or when moving goods in warehouses and similar locations. Advanced versions of cranes scales use a digital readout that can immediately give easy-read results for pounds or kilograms on demand or on a hand held device.

Floor Scales

Floor or platform scales are made to work in industrial environments. These scales can typically weigh the heaviest of loads, with the largest able to weigh up to 30,000 pounds or more. The most common capacities are 1000, 2000 or 5000 lbs.

Typically, floor scales are interfaced with digital indicators that can display weight and other information quickly, and then automatically incorporate the information into a data management system.

Forklift Scales

Using a forklift to transfer cargo from a warehouse to a floor scale, and then to another destination, wastes time, money and floor space. Now you can weigh, transfer and collect data in one efficient operation and reassign the space previously occupied by the floor scale. These scales are also useful when work spaces don’t allow room for a floor scale.

Lab Scales

Lab scales, typically called balances, are extremely precise scales that are most commonly found in laboratories and similar locations where very accurate measurements are regularly required. These scales usually focus on measuring mass, which is necessary for detailed chemical analysis, and vary in how specific they can get.

Medical Scales

Medical scales help doctors, nurses and nursing home / rehabilitation professionals to measure the weight of their patients. These simple scales come in a wide variety of forms, based on what the medical facility decides is best for the patient. Some are affordable step-on scales with a basic digital readout. Some combine a height and weight measuring feature. Others may include accessibility features like ramps and handholds or wheelchair scales so that elderly patients can use them more easily.

Pallet Jack Scales

Weigh and transport pallets in one streamlined process with our pallet jack scales. Easy to use, they offer maximum precision for tracking shipping and receiving weights. Battery power keeps the weighing and transport process moving, while the integrated digital indicator provides a clear weight readout in any lighting condition. With a digital pallet jack scale, material handling is faster and more efficient for your warehouse.

Retail Scales

Retail scales are used in grocery stores and similar environments. In grocery stores, the most common example is buying meats, fruits and vegetables, where items are priced according to weight as they are scanned. For many advanced scales of this type, weighing and label creation are combined in the same device.

Truck & Rail Scales

Truck scales are large capacity scales designed to weigh trucks, heavy equipment, or rail cars. Applications include landfills, asphalt and cement plants and transfer stations. Other types of truck scales include Wheel Weighers, typically used by law enforcement to make sure overloaded trucks are not using our roadways. These portable truck scales can be used where a permanent scale installation isn't practical.

Scale Peripherals

Equipment such as printers and scanners can be attached to digital scales to allow for inputting data or printing weigh tickets or labels.

Sales & Rentals

Industrial scales are integral to production facilities and manufacturers the world over, but only if the scales function at their optimum.

That’s why sourcing this equipment from a trusted supplier is key for maintaining product quality and customer satisfaction. We sell and rent scales that give our clients a competitive advantage in the marketplace.


We offer a wide variety of brand-name scales, and financing options, that make it easy to find the right equipment to optimize operations for all budgets.

Our representatives have years of experience and understand product details, giving clients the insight needed to make effective purchasing decisions. Whether clients need scales that are durable, precise or high-end, we have the resources to meet end-user requirements.

Scales we sell range from milligram laboratory balance scales to 200,000lb+ truck / rail scales.


When buying isn't a feasible option we offer scale rentals at affordable rates that can make a difference in manufacturing operations in real-time. Rental periods of weekly and monthly are available and we will deliver and set up calibrated scales/weighing equipment. For clients that just need scales for seasonal reasons, or for projects that require extra equipment, we are ready to help. Our personnel tailor agreements to meet clients’ needs. Renting has a number of benefits relative to purchasing, especially when you’re sourcing from a trusted partner.

Advantages of scale rental:

  • High-quality machinery available fast.
  • Affordable rental payments.
  • If your scale breaks, we can install a rental while you’re waiting for repairs.
  • Short term solution to fill a production gap. For example, if your company is doing inventory, renting one or more scales would help speed up this process.
  • When you only need a scale temporarily and it doesn’t make buying a scale economically viable, renting is a great alternative.
