Scales

Hanging scales are sometimes referred to as crane scales, as these scales aren't loaded from a platform or weighing pan. Instead, weight is measured from a suspended load. The scale's capacity affects how it can be hung, with hooks or other machinery being used to attach the plate to a crane or other apparatus.

Hanging Scale Application

A hanging scale can be used across different industry sectors due to the sizing options and portability. A load scale is often attached to a crane to weigh any sized load. Items are weighed to ensure that equipment capacity isn't overloaded, presenting serious safety hazards, equipment malfunction, and property damage.

Selecting the Right Scale

The work environment affects which scale will provide the most efficient and accurate weight readings. High-capacity steel units are durable with heavy use, while smaller aluminum units are lightweight and precise for small capacity situations. The features and capacity of the scale impact how convenient it will be to operate in a certain environment. For instance, some scales are battery-powered and manually controlled at the scale, while others have wireless remote control options for increased safety and accessibility with oversized loads.

Here are some of the scale choices available with Hoosier Crane and applications to make a good fit.
