Arlyn’s customization scale services provide a comprehensive, versatile, and expansive suite of options for any application designed for any niche. No matter what the unique weighing solution need is, the New York based company will tailor it to fit your company. They currently have patents on a handful of weighing technology solutions and are always on the look out for new industrial scale branding technology. Some of the solutions they currently have on the market are Automatic Liquid Dispensing Scales. This technology is their newest and is still being put through its paces. They offer Flow Rate Control Scales, which use ultra-precision sensors to measure small weight losses to determine and control flow rates. This would be ideal in any chemical dispensing situation. When it comes to the agricultural or industrial sector, they offer Livestock Weighing and Sorting Scales. Since slaughtering plants pay bonuses for each pig that get closest to the desired target weight, they have designed a control chute that sorts these pigs into different pens based on their weight. They currently offer a fully automatically operated one and are in the process of putting together a manual one to save on production costs. These control chutes also collect data to send to spreadsheets or other relevant applications for data crunching and bonus payouts. Arlyn offers Aggregate Weighing Scales too. This technology is special since it is capable of weighing particles with accuracy that is twenty times more accurate than regular load sensors. They use ultra-precision sensors to achieve this. Others include Liquefied Gas Tank Monitoring. This weighing technology is found mostly in the semiconductor industry to monitor the contents of gas tanks used for processing. This is a very dangerous and highly explosive niche so proceed with caution. Inventory Control is another sector Arlyn has taken a strangle hold on, which is basically another term for bin weighing. Whether it is floor scales or electronic counting scales, the notion here is to monitor the number of parts using weight management Again, once captured, this business critical data is collected and stored over the Internet, and can be monitored by any Web browser, anywhere in the world. Arlyn’s Customization Services reduce costs, improve productivity, maximize efficiency, and enhance customer satisfaction across the lifecycle of the product. Even though all scales are manufactured in the USA, their Customization scales offer affordable unitized pricing while providing quick and accurate comprehension of services and fees-eliminating separate engineering charges. For those who are looking to create a scale to fit their specific niche, there are many factors to determine in choosing the right scale. Some of the more obvious ones are size, capacity, ruggedness, and application. Determining the size of an item is the single most important aspect. It is best to have the item being weighed to fit directly on top of the weighing platter, without any overhang. Choosing too small of a weighing platform, users will grow frustrated since the weight display may be blocked or can hinder the keyboard. This will obtain the most accurate weight. The maximum recommended overhang of an item is two inches on each side. The rule of thumb when picking a capacity is to determine the largest weight of an item to be weighed on the scale platform then add 10 to 15 percent for overload protection. According to some professional opinions, a scale’s ruggedness depends on which method you use to clean your scale. A waterproof scale can be used for both outdoor and indoor applications and then cleaned without using a high pressure washer or chemicals. A wash down scale can typically withstand cleaning from a high pressure hose; caution is advised on the use of chemicals since some may cause damage to the stainless steel surface. Most scales today provide a stainless steel weight platter that will allow you to wipe down the surface of the weight platter removing any contaminated material from it. Many of Arlyn’s models offer full stainless frame construction an option, but it is not standard. If you currently have a software system installed and you are looking for a new scale, identify what scale drivers are available within the software. It is not recommended to buy your scale before identifying what software you will be using, as they may not communicate with each other.
