explosive-environment-scale-c-2Arlyn Scales is proud to offer pallet scales, also known as pallet jack scales. These are among the most widely used types of scales found in shipping, industrial and warehouse applications. Ideally, their best application is wherever there is a need to improve productivity, while being able to accurately measure weight. These are operable by a single individual and have well conceived designs.

Throughout our 30 years of manufacturing all kinds of industrial scales, we have found our customers like the idea of improving productivity is by using intelligent and innovative tools and equipment that increase the quality and efficiency of work. Pallet scales lessen the amount of time necessary to carry out the job, as well as make it easier for anyone doing the work to complete it efficiently.

If you are able to combine this by making enhancements and figuring out less productive procedures that are repeatedly carried out in your business, you’ll be able to achieve serious gains in productivity and, ultimately your bottom line.

A good example of this is a process that was once taken for granted – the task of calculating weight quickly and efficiently – and while on the fly. In many facilities, knowing the information related to weight is achieved though the rather simple process of setting the item to be weighed on a scale, then documenting the result. This is a far more complicated method than necessary. Consider the process, the amount of time consumed, manpower and total hours to execute what should be a fast, simple course of action:

1. The object or product has to be brought to the location of the scale.

2. It must be correctly placed on it

3. The weight needs to be noted

4. After the weight has been documented, the item must be unloaded, then returned to its appropriate location.

If this sounds like quite an operation, this is because it is. It is inefficient, crude, a waste of valuable man-hours and often ties up multiple personnel. Additionally, when an item needing to be weighed is heavy, it turns into a more time and people intensive operation all by itself. This is a flawed way of doing things that can tie-up people and resources, which means it costs you money or time or both.

At this point, it is time to observe how an Arlyn Scales pallet scale can streamline this function:

1. It becomes completely unnecessary to move the item to a scale.

2. As the item needing to be weighed shows up, it can easily be weighed while it is being transferred as well as putting it in its storage space.

As you can see in the examples above, this simple process can be reduced to two simple steps that can be performed by a single individual. There is no requirement for an entirely new set of directions to calculate the weight, develop a new procedure or take people away from other tasks.

Alternatively the item may be weighed when it’s being utilized in any other course of action. It can also be weighed while being prepared for shipment, which still involves the need to move the item only one time. The straightforward approach is that you are able to do away with a specialized procedure to calculate the weight of the item. This can now be done quickly, efficiently, and when it is already in the process of being shifted.

Pallet scales can be instrumental in making improvements to productivity by reducing the amount of time, as well as effort and hard work which results in a measurable savings for you.
