Weighing Scales for Heavy Duty Industrial Use

Weighing Scales and Heavy Duty and Industrial UseIn an industrial society, which depends on importing and exporting materials, shipments of manufactured goods, corrosive liquids and gases and so much more, the weighing scale has become a fixture in daily use within the industrial environment.

It is a fact that the formulation of a substance is dependent on a scale’s accuracy and that the shipping of a pallet is governed by restrictions making the accuracy of this measurement crucial to the industry’s success. There are many scenarios that require weighing scales that are rated for heavy duty and industrial use.

Whatever the industry, Arlyn Scales provides the ultimate weighing scales highly rated for these scenarios, the 5200 Series Floor Scales.

The Necessary Ingredients

Keeping your workday functions operating optimally is no easy task. There are employees to train, machines to be repaired, numerous activities that need to be uninterrupted to keep the flow in motion and we know how important it is to have a scale that is dependable, consistent and accurate.

Our engineering team implemented all of the necessary parts to keep our 5200 Series Floor Scales in active use for years to come.

We manufacture our own subassemblies to ensure quality control. We know our materials and their scope of ability. Being a factory direct manufacturer, gives us the ability to ratify and / or build a scale to exact specifications at a moment’s notice, so to speak.

Delivering Accuracy

Building a scale that will deliver complete consistent weighing feedback under intense conditions requires certain subassemblies. Arlyn Series 5200 Large Floor Scales contains the best of our subassemblies. This scale was built to maintain accuracy and resolution in heavy-duty industrial situations.

Superior Stainless Steel Load Cells

In purchasing your industrial scale you will want to ascertain if the load cell placement, material composition and calibration were chosen and implemented correctly. Arlyn Scales’ engineers calibrate the four advanced stainless steel load cells to NIST, National Institute of Standards and Technology, standards. The load cells are then placed in the machine-pocketed four corners of the scale platform for protection from corrosion.

The advantages of using stainless steel far outweigh the use of steel or aluminum. Stainless steel by nature is non corrosive and dense. This strong metal is the perfect choice in conditions where wear and tear from usage, corrosive material and moisture would otherwise damage the platform.

We feel that is it important to stipulate that this is the only load cell that should be in place in high intensity environments. A pallet dropped just a bit too quickly or a pallet knocking into the scale can render the scale useless. Using our methodology, overload and shock load damage become a non-issue.

Platform Specifications

Our low profile platforms are welded from heavy gage steel, with diamond pattern embedded on the surface to reduce slippage. To further protect the unit from corrosion, we apply a triple zinc galvanized coating to insure that rust does begin and get under the surface as it does in inferior products.

For those industries where further insurance against slippage is a necessity, you have the option of adding another coat of a garnet embedded epoxy protective layer.

Platforms are available in various sizes in aluminum for portability, in steel or stainless steel. Sizes range from three feet by three feet all the way up to eight feet by ten feet with custom sizes available. Arlyn’s 5200 series platform is the four feet by four feet industry standard. Your needs will determine the platform size and whether or not you will need the optional side ramps available to suit every size scale.

Moisture and Shock Absorbent Indicators

In this technological age, the information requirements have dictated the direction we have taken in regards to our indicators. They are 32- bit RISC based, easy to read and program, superior indicators that can be mounted anywhere you designate is best. The applications that are optionally available allow you to interface with one computer or several workstations remotely transferring data and/or commands to and from your scale.

Ethernet connectivity allows you to monitor and control your Arlyn Scales over your local network. With our free Remote Indicator software, your weighing data can be recorded and analyzed using Excel or Access database file from your PC. Using the wireless Internet option, you can manage your scale and data from anywhere in the world.

With our RS-232 and RS-485 you have the option of bi directional interface allowing for communication and commands between printers, programmable logic controllers and computers. The RS-485 allows for a more robust interface over longer distance up to four thousand feet and allows for the controlling of up to ten scales from one workstation.

The interface options provide the security of knowing that your data is safely being recorded and monitored twenty-four / seven.

The Final Product

Implementation of all of the above: superior stainless steel load cells, welded stainless steel platforms with superior protective coatings with low profiles to insure ease of material placement, pre-calibrated load cells and indicators is what it takes to create the best heavy-duty industrial scale for the best price available today. Arlyn’s 5200 series is priced three to five times lower than comparable scales on the market today.

The final product is one that we feel we can stand behind. We have been manufacturing scales for the last 30 years and have learned from the best, our clients. Arlyn Series 5200 Large Floor Scale is a product that provides accurate weight measurements, temperature stability, durability, high readability with great internal resolution ratings for the most challenging industrial environment.

Arlyn’s team of engineers and designers are at the ready to provide you with a scale suiting your specifications should they differ from the industry standard for a price to suit your budget.
