Bench Scale FAQs

A bench scale is a type of weighing scale that is designed to be used on a tabletop or bench. It is commonly used in industrial and commercial settings for weighing large items or batches of items.

Bench scales can be highly accurate, with some models capable of measuring weights down to a fraction of a gram. However, the accuracy of a bench scale will depend on factors such as the quality of the scale, its calibration, and the conditions in which it is used.

When choosing a bench scale, some features to consider include its capacity, accuracy, display readability, durability, and connectivity options.

To calibrate a bench scale, you will typically need a set of calibration weights that are traceable to a national standard. You can then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for calibrating the scale, which may involve adjusting the calibration settings or performing a zero calibration. It is important to calibrate your bench scale regularly to ensure accurate measurements. American Scale also provides calibration services. 

The calibration frequency for bench scales can vary depending on several factors, such as the frequency of use, the environment in which the scale is used, and the level of accuracy required. As a general rule, bench scales should be calibrated at least once per year. However, if the scale is used frequently or in harsh environments, it may need to be calibrated more often. Some manufacturers may also recommend a specific calibration schedule based on their product specifications. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for calibration to ensure that the scale remains accurate and reliable. Additionally, if the scale is moved or bumped, it should be recalibrated before use to ensure accurate measurements.
