Digital crane scales make the task of lifting objects without known weights a more efficient and speedy process. Imagine that you are trying to move an industrial roll of paper with a crane. The crane has a 2000 lb. lift capacity, but you do not know how much the roll weighs. In order to safely lift the paper roll without risk of damaging the crane, one would have to use a forklift to take the roll to a scale, weigh it, and move the roll back to where it was originally so that the crane can lift it. For one or two objects, weighing each object on a scale before lifting it with the crane would not be too difficult; but, for a large number of objects or a high-speed process such as a factory, the hassles and time consumption of weighing each object before lifting it would simply be too great. A better way must exist. Its name is the digital crane scale. These scales allow you to weigh each item that is being lifted as you lift it. The productivity of your operation will increase by the ability to accomplish two tasks at once, and your business will not have to purchase a separate scale to weigh objects before lifting them. In addition, the digital crane scale is much easier to move than a large freight scale and can be mounted on any crane: truck cranes, gantry cranes, and forklift-mounted cranes. If the load does exceed the lift capacity of the crane slightly, you can easily tell. Simply read the weight of the object on the scale’s large LCD screen; if its weight reading is higher than the crane’s capacity, take action to avoid damage to the crane. Not only can the digital crane scale be used to determine unknown weights of objects, but it can also be used to fill up tanks, hoppers, or other containers to a standard weight. As the tank or hopper fills, you can see its weight and know when to stop loading it. Digital crane scales resemble a box with two hooks attached to it. One hook is mounted on top of the box, and another is fixed to the bottom. The box holds the weighing instruments and a LCD screen which displays the weight of the object. One scale that is common in everyday life and is similar in function to the digital crane scale is the supermarket produce scale. However, most supermarket produce scales are spring scales and have a large dial to show the weight of the object. Digital crane scales are not spring scales, and they use a LCD screen to show object weights. Digital crane scales come in many capacities, sizes, and price ranges to fit every need, every use, and every budget. Whether you are lifting and weighing a crate of parts in a shop, an I-beam in a foundry, or a roof truss in a wood products factory, there is a digital crane scale for you.
