Arlyn Scales Ultra Precision Scales for Industrial Weighing

An Ultra Precision Scale by Arlyn Scales provides you with weight measurements that are 10 to 20 times more accurate than standard strain gage scales. Thanks to Arlyn Scales’ groundbreaking use of Surface Acoustic Wave technology, you get accuracy comparable to that of a magnetic force restoration scale but at a much lower cost.

An Ultra Precision Scale from Arlyn Has Excellent Versatility

Ultra Precision Scales are weighing devices designed by Arlyn Scales to give you the most accurate weighing data possible. These scales are hypersensitive and can offer an accuracy of .005%.

Some businesses might be able to get away with less precise measurements, but it’s always a good idea to get the most accurate reading. Frequently, you will need measurements that are up to three or four decimal places in accuracy.

This is particularly true if you’re working in an industry that requires precise data and careful measurements. This can include paint mixing, wastewater treatment, laboratory research, pharmaceutical and medicine production, and many others in which you need a scale with amazing sensitivity.

For example, in the standard 100 lb SAW Scale, the smallest readable weight is 0.001lb. This outperforms 100 lb Strain Gage scales by a factor of twenty times, which can be read at 0.02lb.

Which Industries Need a Precision Scale?

Our scales are used across a diverse range of industries, from construction to liquid processing. An ultra precision scale from Arlyn comes in a number of sizes and capacities, meaning you are certain to find one that will work in your process, no matter how big or small your operation may be.

Aside from reliability, these high capacity scales are remarkably durable and are even made for use in hazardous or classified environments. Our large precision scales are made with a diecast aluminum frame, and stainless steel weighing pans, making them exceptionally durable whether you happen to work in a hot barn, an industrial refrigerator, or any other harsh setting.

These scales are stable enough to cancel out common weight fluctuations due to temperature thanks to the technology used to create them. They also have a number of options depending on your preference for data transfer and storage, including Ethernet, WiFi, WinWedge, USB connectivity, label printing, and more. If you have highly specific needs, we are confident we can help you find what you are looking for.

High Capacity, Accurate Scales for Tough Industrial Environments

When you buy from a trusted manufacturer like Arlyn Scales, you know you are receiving a quality product from a company that understands your needs. Scale accuracy is vital in most industrial environments.

Not only do we provide durable, high accuracy scales, we also have the knowledge and experience needed to offer custom solutions to meet your unique business needs. The United States Military, various airline companies, and some of America’s top universities trust Ultra Precision Scales from Arlyn, so you know that you can, too.

Benefits of Buying a Precision Scale That Meets Sanitation Requirements

Following food safety and sanitation standards promotes public health. Scales that help you adhere to safety regulations shows consumers that you’re committed to safety.

If you’re in a construction, industrial, or paint manufacturing industry, this might not carry much weight. However, if you’re in the food and beverage industry, or involved in certain aspects of the agricultural industry (such as dairy), this is a critical consideration.

Ultra Precision Scale Accuracy

The accuracy of a scale is determined by measuring a reference weight (whose weight is known) and calculating the degree of precision from the measurement displayed on the scale.

Calculating Accuracy of a Precision Scale

For example:

  • You have a 100-pound weight;
  • When you place it on your scale, the display reads 100.8 pounds;
  • The difference between the expected weight (100) and the displayed weight (100.8) equals 0.8;
  • To determine the precision percentage, divide the difference by the actual weight (0.8 / 100);
    • Don’t forget to move the decimal point two spots to the right in order to find a percentage!
  • In this case, your scale is accurate to within 0.8% (or 0.8 lbs in every 100).

A second example: you place a 200-pound weight on the scale and the display reads 200.67 pounds. You find the difference by subtracting the displayed weight (200.67) from the actual, expected weight (200). You then divide the difference (0.67) by the actual weight and calculate that the precision percentage of your scale is 0.335%.

Precision Scales 0.01 g vs. Precision within 0.01%

However, it’s important to understand the difference between a percentage that represents accuracy and the minimum measurement for accuracy. As an example, consider precision scales of 0.001 g.

The decimal number here represents the minimum weight that the scale can detect — its sensitivity. Meanwhile an accuracy percentage of 0.001% would mean that your scale can determine a precise measurement to within 1/100,000ths of 1 pound for every 100 pounds!

Scales for minute measurements (such as digital scales with 0.01 gram accuracy, digital scale .001 gram accuracy, etc.) can be found among both commercial and industrial scales. Many over-the-counter products can boast such small weights, and there are several industries that would require an industrial scale to endure the work environment.

Tips on Maintaining Your Scale Accuracy

Our scales are extremely durable and meant to last, but treating your scale right will ensure it has a long lifespan in which it reliably works at its best. With other scales, you might have to worry about having them recalibrated, but we’ve designed our scales to be calibrated in the field.

You can quickly recalibrate your scale where it is without having to shut down production. In addition to recalibrating your scale, you need to be careful about your loading habits.

You should always properly load your scale, which means never shock loading or overloading. Both of these can lead to damage or inaccurate outputs.

FAQs About Precision Scales

Because our Ultra Precision Scales use new, patented technology, we receive a lot of questions about them. Here are some of the most common questions.

How do Precision Milligram Scales Work?

An Ultra Precision Scale uses Surface Acoustic Wave technology to measure weight. With decades of experience behind us, we were able to create the patented digital Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology to bring you affordable, high precision scales.

Instead of measuring strain or stress, like strain gage load cells, SAW scales measure displacement, creating an amazingly accurate weight reading.

Why Should I Purchase an Ultra Precision Scale?

Arlyn Scales Ultra Precision Scales give you the best of both worlds. You receive a highly accurate scale at a cost-effective price.
