Floor scale validates shipping weights
A low-profile floor scale that is ideal for pre-weighing skids and pallets before shipping to avoid overweight penalties from trucking companies is available from Alliance Scale, Inc. of Canton, Massachusetts.
The Alliance RoughDeck® Floor Scale from Rice Lake is available in sizes from 30” sq. up to 8’ x 10’ with capacities from 1,000 to 30,000 lbs. which are factory calibrated to 0.01% FS accuracy. Featuring an easy to read indicator that can be configured for lb., oz., g, kg., short tons, and metric tons, this floor scale is ideal for weighing skids and pallets before shipping to avoid overweight penalties.
For optimum rigidity and minimum deflection under severe loading, the Alliance RoughDeck Floor Scale has 6” steel channel frames welded to tread plate decks. Incorporating a universal mounting stand, the fully inter-active indicator is encased in a rugged all stainless steel NEMA 4X/IP66 enclosure, offers 3-stage digital filtering, drives eight 350 Ohm load cells, and has two communications ports.
