Cargo Scales

A cargo scale is a device that is used to weigh and measure the weight and size of packages and other objects. Cargo scales are often used in shipping and logistics applications to ensure that shipments are properly sized and weighted for transport.

Cargo Scales FAQs

Cargo scale is a type of weighing system that is commonly used in the shipping and logistics industry. This system relies on a series of sensors and load cells to weigh cargo, containers, or other objects. This information can then be used to calculate shipping costs, track inventory, or even monitor potential safety hazards.

Cargo scales typically use one or more load cells to weigh objects. Load cells are devices that convert force into an electrical signal. cargo scales use this signal to calculate the weight of the object on the scale.

Cargo scales can be used to accurately measure the weight of cargo, which can be important for many reasons. For example, cargo scale can be used to calculate shipping costs, ensure that cargo is not overloaded, and track inventory levels.

There are many different types of cargo scales available on the market. To choose the right cargo scale for your needs, consider factors such as accuracy, capacity, and price. Once you have selected a cargo scale, you will need to calibrate it to ensure accuracy. Calibration is typically done by adding weights of known values to the cargo scale and adjusting the scale until it displays the correct weight.

"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
