Postal – Mail – Shipping Systems:
Most commonly found as part of a mail/post office counter or back office, combination letter and parcel scales interface easily with existing shipping, mailing and inventory systems for efficient and accurate processing. With capacities ranging from 30 – 75 kilograms, at 1, 3, 5, 10 gram intervals, Avery Weigh-Tronix postal scales can handle all types of letters and parcels to allow flexibility of usage and significantly reduce equipment costs. Postal scales integrate into self-service kiosks partnering with third party software for time saving when customers post letters/parcels or purchase stamps.
Shipping Scales / Bench Scales
Ideally suited to general weighing of smaller packages, bench and checkweighing scales are ideal for basic weighing, checkweighing and counting applications. They are available in an extensive range of sizes, capacities and finishes and designed with a small footprint to maximize work space. When it comes to shipping parcels, the ability to correctly charge by weight, capture data and integrate with existing systems can all contribute to profitability.
When speed and accuracy are vital to profitability, conveyor systems can offer the ability to improve processing speed by reducing lifting and increasing throughput. These simple to install electronic scales can easily integrate with computers, label printers and scanners for further process control. Many of our scales offer the option of a balltop shroud for easy movement over the scale, making them ideal for integration into a conveyor system.
Used mainly at goods in/out, or when sorting inventory, floor scales are capable of weighing goods with very high accuracy, reducing the likelihood for revenue loss. This scale system can be placed at a central location within a warehouse and is generally used in two ways. Operators can wheel lighter loads onto the scale for weighing or, for heavier loads, operators can drive forklifts carrying bundled or palletized commodities directly onto the scale.
Forklift Truck Scales
A forklift scale allows drivers to lift and weigh bundled materials on the move. This expedites operations by enabling forklift drivers to take commodities directly to storage upon delivery, while tracking the weight, origin and storage location during transport. This process results in real-time data acquisition, which can be used for billing and inventory management. The ability to transport and weigh materials in one simple step results in tremendous time savings and a speedy return on investment. Forklift scales are also a compact weighing solution, making them suitable for the busy sorting centre and warehouse environment. In-cab instruments such as bar code scanners allow forklift operators to instantly capture all necessary freight data available, then transmit this information with weight data wirelessly via Bluetooth® or radio to supervisory computer systems.
Floor, bench and truck scales pair with a digital scale indicator to collects, store and communicates weight data. This indicator can serve as a local display for manual operations, where operators document readings by hand, or for applications where only the most basic weight data must be gathered. More advanced indicators automate the weighing process with wireless communications to transmit freight identification and weight data to management’s primary data collection software system, improving productivity and producing instant, accurate invoices for all materials weighed.
Counting scales are ideal for use in inventory control and for efficiently and accurately counting a high volume of identical parts. Our precision counting scales can all weigh even the lightest parts with an accuracy of over 99%, minimizing the operator error often found when hand counting. The counting scale range is tough enough to take on any industrial environment and can withstand overloading and shock loading while counting quickly and accurately.
