counting scales | OMEGA Waagen GmbH
Counting scales are characterized by a high resolution. The weighing range is usually up to 30 kg for a bench scale and 150 kg for a platform scale. These scales are used individually. Please note that the internal resolution is many times higher than the displayed resolution.
OMEGA Waagen GmbH offers a large selection for every area of application. The data transfer possibilities are manifold.
Picking is probably the most interesting application for piece counting scales. But also in the storage area this reliable helper is gladly fallen back on. Not only at the end of the year in the context of the inventory these scales are very popular with the users. However, piece counting scales have proven to be particularly useful as inventory scales. The time saving is considerable and the monotonous work is made much easier for the user.
A few grams as unit weight can be counted without any problems. Simply place a few parts on the weighing plate and enter the number of pieces via the keyboard. Then an undefined number of pieces is placed on the scale and can be read on the display:
Ø The Total weight
Ø The unit weight
Ø The number of pieces
This clear presentation can of course also be used in the form of a printout for documentation purposes.
verification or calibration
This question should not even arise with a piece counting scale. The piece counting system is not calibratable. The Measurement and Verification Act basically excludes the calibration of this function. Although the weight function can be calibrated if the necessary conditions are met, this makes no sense.
Calibration, on the other hand, is very useful. Both for our own documentation within the scope of production and quality control, as well as for passing on to the customer. Here you can carry out both the ISO calibration and the DAkkS calibration.
You can find everything about calibration and verification in our blog.
Piece Counting scales in the overwiew
As already shown, piece counting scales are available as table or platform scales. The following table clearly shows the weighing ranges and resolutions:
Table Counting scale
6 kg, 15 kg, 30 kg
0,1 g, 0,2 g, 0,5 g
Platform Counting Scale
30 kg, 60 kg, 150 kg
10 g, 20 g, 50 g
If you want to be very accurate and still weigh and count larger loads, a combination of piece counting scale and platform scale is the right choice. This is a counting system.
We offer you individual solutions and complete systems according to your wishes. Our extensive product range covers almost all applications.
Installation and use
As for all scales, the location and conditions of installation are decisive for the piece counting scale. Influencing factors are among others:
Ø Wrong orientation
Ø Uneven load distribution
To achieve perfect results, you are making the right choice when you buy an OMEGA scale. However, even the highest quality scales can only function as well as the above-mentioned influencing factors allow. Therefore you should also take a look at our accessories when making your purchase decision.
The user also has an influence on the accuracy of the weighing result. Tests have shown that under the same conditions with different users, a scale can achieve different results in a given process. This is due to a different operation by the user. In most cases, however, this measurement uncertainty is negligible.
Useful accessories for table counting scales are, for example, a rechargeable battery. A printer can also be very useful. However, this depends on the weighing job. In many applications, accessories can significantly support the task. For some applications, however, the standard may be just the right choice.
Please contact us and we will support you in choosing the right scale for your application.
certificates of calibration
Although a counting scale is not subject to calibration and cannot be calibrated, it must function correctly. This can be proven with a corresponding test report. Depending on the quality management system, a factory calibration (DIN EN ISO 9001) or a DAkkS calibration may be necessary.
In our blog we deal with this topic in great detail.
Almost all scales from our range have a connection possibility for a printer and/or a PC. Wireless solutions are also possible. Your application = our solution!
We supply the housing in plastic or stainless steel. The load plate is always made of stainless steel and therefore easy to clean.
In addition to mains operation, battery operation is optionally available for many models.
The applications of our customers are as individual as our solutions. If you need something more unusual, we are the right contact for you.
