Fairmont, MNNovember 15, 2003Avery Weigh-Tronix, Inc. introduces its new PANCAKE SCALE, a large, low profile cargo scale that is the first to offer the accuracy and reliability of Weigh Bar® sensor technology. The large, 10-ft. X 10-ft. durable steel platform incorporates four 5,000 lb. Weigh Bar sensors to provide a total capacity of 20,000 lbs.
"Accuracy, reliability and durability are what has propelled Weigh Bar technology to the forefront of the scale industry," said Tim Peterson, Product Manager. "Given the 24/7 environment of the cargo and shipping trades, this new Pancake Scale exceeds the need for dependability and near-flawless performance under the rigors of almost constant pounding." Peterson pointed to data from a 3-year study that put failure rates for the Weigh Bar at a mere one-half of one percent- a significant improvement over the 3%-5% failure rates of competitive load cells. Studies also indicate superior rates for errors, reflecting greater accuracy for the Weigh Bar technology.
The Avery Weigh-Tronix Pancake Scale features wrap-around ramps provide 360-degree access for forklifts, hand trucks and cargo transport vehicles, while the 4-inch height helps keep loads level and easier to move on and off the scale. End ramps are 36-inches long with a very gradual 6-degree slope; side ramps are 15-inches long with a 15-degree slope. The Pancake Scale features the industry's most secure protection for the Weigh-Bar sensors-vastly superior to even hermetic sealing- ensuring the most durability and reliable operation in rugged use conditions. Factory Mutual approved for hazardous applications, the scale comes complete with 30-feet of interface cable and a remote stainless steel junction box.
The Avery Weigh-Tronix Pancake Scale is the first of four product introductions planned for the cargo industry.
