Custom Scales Applications
Arlyn Scales actively seeks new applications that require any aspect of weighing, batching, mixing, instrumentation, controlling, recording and reporting. We help design, test and manufacture a wide range of OEM and specialized technologies for incorporation into a variety of customized equipment.
Specialty and Custom Weighing Sensors, Load Cells and Ultra Precision Sensors
Load cells are available from many sources. But Arlyn Scales designs develops and produces rugged industrial grade load cells, generally manufactured from stainless steel. The format and size may be modified to fit new or existing devices. Our current design portfolio includes load cells from 2 lb capacity to more than 20,000 lb. Many applications require accuracy levels that are not obtainable with traditional strain gauge load cells. Arlyn’s patented Ultra Precision load cells are TEN TO TWENTY TIMES MORE ACCURATE. Virtually every application needs some sort of electronic instrumentation. We offer a large portfolio of designs, including simple 4-20 ma amplifiers, or low cost, full-featured digital indicators. Many of our newer designs incorporate surprisingly inexpensive Android-based color touch screen instruments. All of these designs may be modified to exactly meet your specification. Almost any type of communication interface is available, such as Ethernet, WiFi, USB, Bluetooth, and RS-232.
Specialty and Custom Industrial Scale and Weighing Solutions
We have developed a range of custom weighing equipment for a variety of specific industries and we are ready to meet the challenge of rigorous applications including parts counting, packaging, and inventory taking. In many cases, this equipment is accompanied by custom software applications. Arlyn’s technology can run conveyors, operate feeders, batch and mix a number of ingredients, and operate sensors and valves. The software can be cloud-based and run on the web or give direct readings to a local PC spreadsheet or database. Here is an abbreviated list of some customized applications:
Laundry Cart Weighing Kits – Built-in weight sensors determine the amount of laundry in the cart. Readings are sent by Bluetooth to an Android Tablet.
Parts Counting for Inventory Control – Multiple bins on shelves are monitored to determine the number of parts in inventory. A WiFi connection communicates this data to a website. Low inventory levels trigger automatic e-mail messages. Systems from around the world can be monitored anywhere there is internet access.
High-Speed Check Weighing – Arlyn’s Ultra Precision load cells can be programmed to provide extremely fast measurements. When adapted to a conveyor, industry best speeds and accuracy can be obtained.
Gas Cylinder Levels – The quantity of liquified gas in a cylinder cannot be determined by gas pressure. Cylinders are placed on scales, which may then be monitored to provide alarms when levels are too low.
Explosive and Flammable Environments – Specially approved weighing platforms can be used in those industrial situations which prohibit regular equipment.
Batching and Counting – Custom Scales with automatic, semi-automatic, and manual batching controllers and solutions. Confirming production inventory, packing parts in containers, or quantities.
Batching Mixers – Ultra Precision load cells can be used to very accurately mix chemicals, and other ingredients.
Paint-Mixing Scales – Precise scales are needed for producing the right colors. Equipped with refinishing solutions that are high-performance weighing scales.
Filling and Dispensing Custom Solutions – Fast, precise, and repeatable applications for filling bulk containers, totes, drums, sacks or vehicles.
Over or Under Checkweighing – Portioning or quality control need to be carefully monitored when checkweighing with factors such as speed and quality playing an important role.
Basic Weighing – Scales that are needed for systematic, consistent, and precise weighing requirements.
Container Weighing – Liquids, powders, solids, and gases are captured, stored, and processed in various types of vessels, tanks, cylinders, silos, and unique containers with the data entry monitoring from anywhere online.
Washdown Scale Weighing – Weighing solutions suitable and resistant for harsh wet & chemical environments.
Bulk Material Handling – Weighing Scales that provide accurate measurement even in harsh environments for conveyors, tanks, silos, hoppers, vehicles, and railway
Quality Control – Completeness control while in-process by weighing is a simple solution for parts, modules, and kits that might have defective products.
Calibration and Flowmeters – Weighing scales with traceable calibration inside vessels or machines for automated volumetric dispensing in research and electronic manufacturing.
High-Precision Weighing – High-precision scales from Arlyn Scales provide the required logical performance when consistently accurate measurements are critical and tolerances are tight.
Industrial Digital Scales’ Applications
Our industrial scales are designed to be rugged enough for use in harsh field environments, demanding factory locations, and warehouses. The scales require minimal training to operate, saving you time and money in maintenance, repair, and operations. We have provided the uses we know are needed based on customers and our knowledge of various industries. The range of ways in which applications can be customized grow every day with new technologies and industries.
