The Importance of Future-Proofing Weighing Equipment

A macadamia nut processor in Gympie, Queensland, recently asked AccuWeigh to increase the maximum capacity of a trade-approved pallet scale in their factory. The increase in maximum capacity was necessary because the processor had started packing larger pallet loads. Unfortunately, the capacity increase to 3,000kg was not possible because the existing pallet scale did not have load cells with a suitably rated capacity. It was then necessary for AccuWeigh to supply a new A500 pallet scale.

This highlights the importance of purchasing weighing equipment that is capable of meeting future demands. Of course, none of us have a crystal ball and we don’t know exactly what the future brings for us or our businesses. However, some consideration of future expansion is possible and weighing equipment can be purchased to meet these potential scenarios.

AccuWeigh’s A500 pallet scale is an excellent choice for any business. Even if originally purchased as a 1,500kg capacity scale or as non-trade, it can easily be recalibrated as 3,000kg in the future, or be made trade-approved. We typically supply a digital indicator that has excellent connectivity to other devices which might be needed to work with the weighing process in future.
