Counting Scales for Industry Piece Counting
Counting scales are a valuable piece of equipment for many industries, allowing efficient and accurate piece counting for several business types.
What is a Counting Scale?
A counting scale is designed for accurately counting several of the same object at the same time by using its weight. They eliminate the risk of human error from manually counting items and speed up the process, saving businesses valuable time for completing other tasks.
How does Piece Counting work with Counting Scales?
Rather than counting each individual piece, taking hours of your time, counting scales allow you to carry out piece counting in 3 easy steps:
- Weigh an individual piece (or enter weight manually)
- Weigh a full lot of pieces
- Divide the total lot weight by the individual piece weight to give the number of pieces
Presica balances carry out step 3 automatically, giving you the number of pieces in a lot without you needing to do any calculations.
Do I Need Counting Scales for Piece Counting?
If you carry out piece counting, counting scales can help streamline your work, making the process more accurate and efficient, and saving you from the repetitiveness of counting several individual items. For example, if a manufacturing company carried out a stock take, they would want to know exactly how many screws, washers and nuts they have. Manually counting out each of these items would take a long time and would be a rather monotonous task. Using a piece counting scale will dramatically reduce the time taken on the stock take, saving a significant amount of time, whilst also reducing the risk of human error.
