Coil Scale FAQs

Coil scales are weighing systems that are specifically designed to weigh coils of steel or other metals. They are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, and transportation to accurately weigh large coils of metal for shipping and storage.

Coil scales typically consist of a platform or frame that is designed to hold the coil of metal, along with load cells that measure the weight of the coil. The weight measurements are then displayed on a digital readout.

When choosing a coil scale, some features to consider include its capacity, accuracy, durability, and connectivity options (such as data logging and reporting capabilities).

To maintain your coil scale, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance. Calibration should be performed regularly to ensure accurate measurements. Calibration can be performed using certified calibration weights or by using the scale’s builtin calibration features. Regular maintenance can help prolong the life of your coil scale and ensure that it remains accurate and reliable.

Yes, when using a coil scale, it is important to follow all safety precautions to prevent injury or damage to the equipment. This may include wearing PPE (personal protective equipment), properly securing the coil to the scale, and avoiding overloading the scale. Additionally, it is important to follow all manufacturer’s guidelines for use and maintenance of the scale to ensure safe and accurate operation.

Yes, some coil scales are designed to be used in outdoor environments and are built to withstand exposure to the elements. However, it is important to check the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure that the scale is suitable for outdoor use and to take appropriate measures to protect the scale from damage due to weather or other environmental factors.

"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!"
