How the weighing point influences the measured results

How the weighing point influences the measured results

The way a scale is loaded can greatly influence the measured results, performance and lifespan of a scale or balance.
Most scales and balances are intended for weighing products evenly dispersed on the weighing surface.

For example, on a platform scale weights can be repeatedly weighed on a europallet, placed on the weighing surface, because the entire weight is evenly distributed.

If the same weight is weighed on the same scale, but placed directly on the weighing surface and on a smaller surface, then the results will be drastically influenced.
If, for example, a 3-wheel trolley is placed on the weighing surface and the weighing products are placed on that weighing trolley.
This situation is known as the one in which we have point demand.

In this case, there will be situations of scale failure, or erroneous weight measurements, due to the placement of the unevenly distributed product.

Some specific applications:

  • Wheeled containers
  • Pallets with legs
  • Pallet trucks
  • Repetitive weighing with heavy products, which have small seating areas
