For adhesive and sealant manufacturers, there are a number of scale features that are extremely important due to how these materials are made. The process for manufacturing adhesives and sealants often requires mixing a number of different materials and the weight and amount used must always be tracked to ensure the finished product has the necessary sealing or adhesive properties to be used by end users.
One way that manufacturers are able to consistently create high quality sealant and adhesive products is through the use of industrial scales. These scales offer a whole host of features that ensure accurate readings can be recorded and that a variety of automation procedures can be introduced that can reduce error and improve business processes all based on data from an industrial scale.
At Arlyn Scales, we’ve been manufacturing high quality industrial scales for more than 30 years. In this time, we’ve worked closely with a large number of customers to get input on their exact needs. This has allowed us to introduce a large number of specialized industrial scales and scale features that continue to be welcomed by our growing list of customers.
Arlyn Scales is headquartered in Long Island, New York where all of our scales are not only designed, but manufactured as well. We’ve found that by keeping all of our design and manufacturing resources state side has allowed us to continuously improve the products that we’re providing our customers. As you read on you’ll see some of the truly groundbreaking scales and features we’ve developed, which is one of the main reasons why our customers continue to come back again and again when they’re in the market for a new industrial scale.
Industrial Scales Suitable for Adhesive & Sealant Manufacturers
If you’re looking for a type of scale that will work well in the adhesive & sealant industry, be sure to check out the following models from Arlyn Scales:
Ultra Precision Scales
Ultra Precision Scales utilize our own patented Surface Acoustic Wave technology allowing them to produce readings that are 10-20 times more accurate than standard strain gage scales, while being able to provide the same level of accuracy as magnetic force restoration scales, but at a fraction of the cost. In addition, Ultra Precision Scales don’t exhibit many of the shortcomings of both strain gage and magnetic force restoration scales.
Look no further than the Ultra Precision Scale for adhesive & sealant environments where both capacity and precision are required.
Many adhesive & sealant manufacturers use chemicals and other materials that are housed in drums. Typical industrial scales are not ideal for weighing drums, which is why Arlyn Scales offers drum scales that offer a number of unique features that ease the process of consistently and accurately weighing drums.
The most important features of any drum scale are the ease with which drums can be loaded onto the platform as well as a need for a rail-less design that can accommodate drums that may hang over the edges of the scale. Arlyn’s Series 3250 Drum Scales offer a low-profile platform that is just 1 7/8” tall and also includes a ramp for easy loading and unloading. In addition, the scale has no side rails to ensure larger items can be weighed and produces accurate readings, all while holding up to the daily rigors of an industrial environment thanks to high quality components such as stainless steel load cells.
Key Features of Industrial Scales for Adhesive & Sealant Manufacturers
Now that we’ve showcased a few industrial scales that work well for adhesive & sealant manufacturers, we thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of the key features of our scales that make using them so beneficial to your bottom line.
Wide Array of Communication Options
What are you currently doing with all of the weight data that is produced by your industrial scales? Are you cataloging this data in the cloud, or inputting it into a database to help you and your team make critical business decisions? If the answer is no to any of these questions then you need to talk with the scale experts at Arlyn Scales.
Our industrial scales offer a wide array of communication options that allow you to instantly access your weight data across all types of devices on your company’s corporate network. Below are just a few of the ways that you can access weight data from one of our industrial scales:
- Ethernet / WiFi– Simply connect your scale to either an Ethernet or WiFi network and instantly be able to control and access weight data from anywhere. Imagine being able to control your scale from across the country, or even across the world provided that you have an active internet connection.
- USB – This is the most common way that our customers use to access and control their industrial scales. Simply connect a USB cable between a computer and your scale and be able to import scale data directly into a database program of your choice.
- Datalogging – Many of our customers have to place scales in areas where computer access is difficult. For these applications, we offer our datalogging functionality that allows you to simply plug in a USB drive of some type to your scale to download for later use. This data is saved in CSV format making it accessible in your favorite spreadsheet or database program such as Microsoft Excel or Access.
Automate Processes in Your Facility With Our Setpoint Controller
Another useful feature for adhesive & sealant manufacturers is our setpoint controller. This controller allows you and your team to better automate and control the filling, dispensing and batching of all types of materials. Program up to 8 weight values that can help you to mix and dispense materials as well as perform programmable logic (PLC) functions. Imagine being able to trigger a piece of equipment when a set value is reached, or to simply receive an email when a certain process is done.
