Weighting Scales

What are weighting scales?

Compact versions of weighting scales are both portable and are able to weigh heavier loads than small pocket digital scales. Weighting scales are still as precise as their smaller cousins but tend to come with accessories to fulfil their extra functions, for example, a weighing dish, or calibration weights.  Weighting scales are great for situations when larger measures need to be weighed out, which can include cooking but business or medical purposes are more typical.

As weighting scales tend to bigger they also tend to be heavier, with even the compact weighting scales weighing in at 500g. Weighting scales tend to be just as accurate, weighing in 0.1g increments, but can take often loads in excess of 10o0-g/1kg.

Digital Scales

How Chinese replication digital scales are improving competition in the marketplace making it better for consumers.

Many Chinese exporters and manufacturers are flushing the UK market with fake digital scales at ultra cheap prices. The effect this has on the digital scales market is make manufacturers compete on price. Competition is not only relevant to the digital scales market, it is what capitalism is based upon. As a result, digital scales manufacturers have lowered their prices in order to better compete, and of course this discount on digital scales is passed on to the customer!

On the flipside, Chinese digital scales manufacturers produce budget, low-quality products, which work out more expensive as they need to be replaced much more quickly, or often don’t work at all. The good news is that consumers can still benefit because genuine digital scales manufacturers have reduced their prices meaning that consumers, if they buy from the right place, get more bang for their buck.

Why it’s important to choose the right Digital-Scales-Company

Because Chinese exporters and manufacturers mass-produce fake digital scales at ultra cheap prices, it’s important to choose the right Digital-Scales-Company to capitalise on the positive effect extra competition to the market can bring. Because of the extra competition each genuine digital-scales-company has to lower their price to better compete. If each digital-scales-company is lowering its price of genuine digital scales then the customer gets great products at discounted prices.

However, if a consumer buys a low quality digital scale from a Chinese digital-scales-company, it will work out more expensive for them because the digital scale will need to be replaced much more quickly. It might not work at all. But the good news is that consumers will still benefit if they buy from a genuine digital-scales-company.

When to recalibrate Cheap Pocket Scales

People often ask us when to recalibrate pocket scales. Often the problem is actually that a customer has bought some cheap pocket sales from a Chinese manufacturer and the recalibration function doesn’t work.  

If the cheap pocket scales screen ever reads ‘LLL’ or ‘EEE’ it normally suggests that the weighing mechanism has been damaged, likely from being dropped. However, with cheap pocket scales, dropping them is not always the cause and it could be that you will need to re-invest in a new product as you might find that the guarantee is not genuine and that when you send the cheap pocket scales back for repair, they are never returned. Nonetheless, it is worth trying to recalibrate it by following the instructions.

If the screen reads ‘888’ it suggests that the batteries are close to running out. Alternatively, that the cheap pocket scales are having trouble defining ‘0’ is.  This is also a common problem with cheap pocket scales. If you replace the batteries and the problem persists, you will need to send your cheap pocket scales in for repair if they are still under guarantee.

‘UNST’ means that the machine is on an uneven surface. If you are sure that this is not the problem, then it indicates that the cheap pocket scales has load cell damage. If this is the case, please try recalibrating the pocket scales. If this produces no positive outcome then you will need to consult your warranty guidelines.

How a Digital Scale Analyzes and Calculates Your Body Fat Percentage

With my friend’s recent frustrations over his body fat measurements, we decided to find out exactly how body fat calculators, monitors, analyzers, and scales work (lots of fancy names, but one universal way of estimating your body fat percentage).

Body fat scales use BIA to estimate your body composition (ratio of fat to muscle). When you step on the scale, it sends a 500 microampere current up your leg. Don’t worry, humans can’t even sense any current less than 1000 microamperes, much less be harmed by one.

The current travels through your body, navigating through your muscle and fat tissue. Muscle provides an easier path for the current, because it’s made up of 73% water, which, of course, is a great conductor. Fat, on the other hand, offers more resistance and slows the current down. So, obviously, the less fat and more muscle you have, the faster the current will travel.

Once the current completes its path, the scale calculates the time it took to do so. It uses this information, along with your height and weight, to give you a rough estimate of your body fat percentage.

So remember, no matter what it says on the box or in the ad, no body fat scale is going to give you exact results every time. A number of factors ranging from what time of day you measure to what and when you last ate to the current room temperature can all affect the results. So, remember to use the body fat scale as a general guide to which direction your moving in, and not an absolute calculation of your exact body fat percentage.

Even with their less than perfect results, they are a great way to get a general idea of your body composition, instead of just your body weight. They are convenient, fairly accurate, and relatively inexpensive. For these reasons, they greatly outweigh (pun intended) traditional scales, because you can keep track of your changing body more accurately.

For example, if you are overweight and begin an intense exercise routine to get in shape, you could be losing FAT while gaining MUSCLE at the same time. This is excellent and will improve your health and your physical appearance. However, if you were just using a normal scale, you would see that your weight is staying the same or maybe even increasing. This could leave you frustrated and make you give up on the excellent results you were actually achieving. If you were using a body fat scale, you could have seen that your body composition was changing for the better, and you were actually making great progress!

Types of scales

Filed under: scales — Tags:

There are so many types of digital scales available in the market. These scales are mainly classified on the basis of usage. Some scales are used for a single purpose and some others are beneficial for multiple purposes.

Some among the popular types of digital scales are baby, adult, food, nutrition, diet, bathroom, laboratory, animal, crane and truck, metal weighing, postage and shipping, and counting scales. Baby scales are used in hospitals, doctor’s offices, and even homes to know the growth rate of babies and infants on a regular basis.

Food, diet, and nutrition scales are used to know the amount of food intake. These types of digital scales are well suited for body builders and individuals who are conscious about their weights. Bathroom scales help you to take individual weights. These scales are most often obtained with additional features including body fat measurements.

Laboratory scales find use in medical and scientific areas where small particles such as dust and lint are to be measured. Animal scales are designed to weigh farm animals and pets. These scales are made special for different animals and birds so as to keep them comfortable and relaxed while weighing. Crane scales are generally hanging scales with some sort of lifts to take the heavy objects. Truck scales take vehicle weights including that of tankers and rigs.

Metal weighing scales are used to weigh gold, silver, and other precious and semi precious stones. These are generally used in jewelry shops and by individuals who buy and sell jewelry items.

Postal scales are useful to weigh postage mails and parcels. Most digital postage scales available now are designed in such a way that the scales are programmed with postal rate information. This helps the scales to adjust rates each time the value changes and to display the right amount for postal services.

Counting scales are among the commonly used digital scales. These serve the function of counting currencies and coins. In machine part manufacturing industries, digital scales are useful to count parts as well as to take weights.
