Choosing the Right Precision Scale

Precision scales are versatile in terms of the different features that they offer. Although they're primarily used for their precise readings, different kinds of accurate scales come with unique benefits. These scales are used in many kinds of industries - industrial, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, educational and construction. Choosing the right precision scale for your purpose can be tricky because of the many options and features available. Some things to consider while choosing precision scales are:

  • The intended purpose of the precision scale determines the kind of features you need in it. While a scale with the ability to transmit data to your computer might be required in a laboratory, it won't be necessary for a classroom setting.
  • Paying attention to the scale’s size industries is important because you're in an industry that requires the scale to be portable. A heavy precision scale might meet your measuring requirements, but it will be of no use if you're in an industry that requires the scale to be carried around regularly. 
  • The brand of the scale and the manufacturer's adherence to the testing and licensing guidelines is essential. Choosing a scale that your business can rely on can prevent miscalculations and accidents later.

At Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd, we know precision scales inside and out. If you need help choosing the right scale for your specific needs, call us, and we'll guide you.

What Is a Precision Scale?

Precision scales, also called 'top-loading' scales, are used to measure the quantities of materials in minuscule increments. As the name suggests, these scales are used for precise readings, and unlike their counterparts, precision scales usually have more features like below balance measurements. These models serve as a key feature in laboratories, which is why they're widely used in industries like pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, not to mention their contribution to scientific research. Moreover, these scales are a common sight on construction sites because of their durability for measuring materials like concrete. You'll also often find these scales at a jewellery store because of their capacity to provide precise readings - essential to measuring precious elements like gold and silver. 


Precision scales are versatile and can be utilized for projects that require precise readings. Contact us to find out if we have the right precision scale for you in Calgary.
