Scales can become damaged for any number of reasons. The most common culprits include excessive exposure to water or moisture, electromagnetic fields of disturbance, over-loading, and reckless use. It’s important to keep in mind that scales house sensitive measuring components. Avoid using your scale for anything other than its intended purpose. Should your scale become damaged, you’ll want to seek professional scale repair, in order to avoid costly downtime.
When it comes to measurements, accuracy is the name of the game. No matter what kind of weighing equipment your business uses, routine calibration is very important for several reasons, including: guaranteed compliance with ISO quality requirements, legal for trade compliance, compliance with other regulatory agencies – such as the FDA and USDA which may govern your industry, and guaranteed accuracy with weights.
