X-Ray Inspection Systems

The use of X-ray inspection systems in the food industry has significantly increased over the last years as they have proven to be a good investment for ensuring product safety, integrity and quality.

Crane Scales

Crane scales are specialty scales used to do the weighing as you "pick-up" the object. These scales are usually hanging as part of an overhead crane system or winch. Crane scales are available in both mechanical and electronic models with some advanced units employing RF technology to send weight from the crane device to a desktop display for the operator. Units are available for standard industrial application, high heat areas, and heavy wash down locations.

Forklift Scales

Forklift scales are complete scales that are mounted as part of your fork truck's carriage. This allows the forklift driver to pick up loads and weigh at the same time, saving time and money. Units are available with cab mounted displays or Bluetooth links to other devices. These scales are typically powered by the battery of the fork truck.

Dimensioning Products

Dimensioning products provide static dimensions of random packages to be used in the calculation of freight charges. Whether you need to do a quick check of parcels at the point-of-pick or require a solution for automatic merging of dimensions, weight, and ID data, System Scale has a solution to fit any application. Choose between mobile or stationary dimensioning options and capture data at any step of your operation. The systems are easy to install and connect to label printers and scanning devices and are simple to integrate into existing IT infrastructure, which makes the move to automatic measuring simple and seamless.

System Scale Also Offers These Additional Specialty Scales: 

  • Overhead rail scales for in-process weighing
  • Basis weight scales
