When purchasing counting scales there are several items that will dictate the success of the scale within your work place.
1. Does it actually weigh low enough for your smallest product?
Most good counting scales weigh far below than what you can actually see on the display. The larger division sized scales are used to show a stable reading to the operator. Look within the specifications of the scale for the minimum piece weight. If the specification is lower than the weight of your items then the scale should be capable.
2. Is it the correct physical size?
Look closely at the pan size, and make sure when purchasing a scale for larger items that the weigh pan is large enough to weigh the counted items.
3. Value for money
Value for money normally is shown by how versatile an item is. The better counting scales are easily operator and have the low piece weights with large capacity scales. The higher the capacity the more versatile the scale is and more importantly the stronger the load cell is. The higher the capacity the less change of damaging the load cell (weighing part of the scale).
