Counting Scales

Counting scales are an effective way of quickly counting components/products with similar piece weight. They play an invaluable role in inventory purposes, stock taking, packing and commerce.

Weightron offer a range of dedicated counting scales. However, in many applications, the counting function is an integral part of the weight indicator. As a result, most of our bench and floor scales can be used for counting operations.

Dual scale counting systems offer advantages for high volume counting, linking two scales together with different capacities. The samples are usually weighed on the smaller scale and then larger quantities of product can be counted on the larger scale.

Please contact us for help and advice on selecting the right counting scale for your application.

How do counting scales work?

Counting scales enable the operator to count components or piece parts by weight. Typically, the operator hand counts a sample of the product to be volume counted and then places this sample on the scale, entering the number of pieces via the instrument keypad. The scale electronics divides the total weight on the scale by the number of pieces in the sample to determine the average piece weight (APW). For regular counting procedures, component weights can be stored in the scale’s memory and re-called via the relevant PLU name/number (PLU = product lookup).

The scale can then apply this APW to the weight of a larger quantity of products placed on the scale and display the count (just as a scale can be calibrated to weigh in grams or kg, it can also be ‘calibrated’ to weigh in units of a specific component). The accuracy is, of course, dependent on the uniformity of the individual products. As a general rule, the larger the sample, the more accurate the counting process.
