A comprehensive list of companies involved in the manufacture and supply of Weighing Systems.
Whilst almost everyweighing scaleuses the same basic principle (the gravitational force exerted by an object divided by the area the force is applied on), industrial weighing scales are designed to do a lot more. They handle heavier loads, often in different conditions, both environmental and physical.
The terminology applied to different industrial weighing systems is widely ranged, with some terms adapted specifically for them, which are included in this glossary. Modern scales are electronic, and often computer-networked; consequently, the field has imported a fair amount of terminology fromelectrical engineeringandcomputerized data transfer.
Weighbridges are to be found in every quarry and waste transfer station.
