Industrial Weighing Scales

corrosion-resistant-scale-2-1For more than thirty years, our scales had been has been manufacturing electronic scales and been a leader in the development and design of new technology for the weighing industry. Whatever your needs, you will be able to match them with the appropriate Arlyn scale or custom designed weighing system. All scales are available in stock at much lower factory direct cost to you.

Choose from their sensitive laboratory balances, super sensitive high resolution scales, industrial platform scales, corrosion resistant stainless steel drum scales, cylinder scales, floor scales, hanging scales, counting scales and more.

Many of these scales are available for very high precision measurements with our super sensitivity and surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology. Additionally, all industrial scales connect to a large graphics LCD digital scale indicator with a wide variety of options for measurement modes, readouts, electronic outputs, and computer connections and data calculations.

Our industry standard strain gauge technology is combined with stainless steel load cells for high accuracy along with ruggedness and durability. A strain gauge consists of a metal foil load cell that acts as an electrical resistor whose resistance changes with compression. The cells change in resistance is proportional to sample weight and can be determined electronically.

This electronic data is delivered as an analog output that is fed to an analogue-to-digital converter for processing by computer where the measurement can be combined with calibration, tare, zero point and other data for desired calculations. The results, measurement descriptions and other information can be digitally displayed or printed out.

Certain top loading balances from Arlyn Scales are available in Ultra Precision SAW models employing our new solid-state Surface Acoustic Wave technology. SAW scales still use metal load cells but include these devices that do not utilize stress or strain measurement but uses surface displacement to determine weight.

The amount of displacement required for measurement is very small. This difference in displacement represents a small fraction of the measurable stress on a load cell produced in a standard strain gauge by a similar weight difference. The result is a reduction in the error (precision) terms typical of standard load cells.

Digital Scale Indicators for Industrial Scales

Our digital 32 bit ARM Processor based indicators handle the recording and manipulation of each industrial scales output and any connection to your own computer systems and printers. Both the standard model and the stainless steel (NEMA 4x corrosion protected) option are water and shock resistant and include a bracket for mounting to a wall or bench top.

User can configure the display to show weight, tare information, measurements information, items descriptions, set points for batching and more depending on scale functions. Some optional features include:


  • Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • 20mA Analog Output
  • Ethernet connection
  • USB port
  • RS-232 Computer/Printer Port
  • Label, Paper, and Card Printer
  • Windows Interface Software

Platform Scales with Industrial Technology (Aluminum or Stainless Steel)

Our 3200 Industrial Platform Scales use four stainless steel industry standard load cells placed within a welded frame that makes these scales resistant to shock and abuse of heavy use. A swivel mount is provided for rubber gasket mounting of the molded enclosure of the 1″ high graphics Digital Scale Indicator for added water resistance.

Scales are available in either 20″ x 27″ or 48″ x 48″ aluminum platform sizes and either 500 x 0.1 lb. or 1,000 x 0.2 lb. capacities and resolutions. For added corrosion resistance, these models are available with full stainless steel construction.

Floor Scales with Ramps and Large Graphics LCD Digital Display

Our floor scales and ramps are particularly well suited to the weighing of shipping pallets for multiple wrapped items/parts or a single large item requiring forklift handling. As with all our scales their rugged and durable construction is combined with the accuracy needed for shipping applications.
