Life is like a weighing machine where balance is more important. A mechanical Weighing scale is an ordinary commodity that we come across in everyday life. From the olden days to recent times, the shapes and designs of the weighing scale have transformed and modernized in their own sphere. On the other hand, its usage has never faded.
The weighing scale is a measuring device used to weigh products based on the force exerted on the hook.The accuracy of weighing machines differs based on gravity. The Weighing scale measures the weight alone, it does not calculate the mass or volume of the products.
Traditional weighing scale
The traditional weighing scale is known as beam balance. The components of it are pointer, beam and scale pans. They are not so accurate and precise in results. People will hold the balance in their hands to check the weight of the products. Separate weighing stones should be placed on the pans to calculate the accuracy of the product’s weight.
Mechanical weighing scale
The mechanical weighing scales use technical methods to gauge the products. It is also known as analog scales. Most mechanical scales operate using a spring system. When the weight is loaded, the spring will point at a particular position based on the force exerted on the load cell. There are huge advantages of mechanical weighing scale as follows
- It works without power consumption.
- A mechanical weighing scale is user-friendly and provides valid results
- You can weigh heavy loads in mechanical weight machines
- It is easy to calibrate by turning the knobs.
- It provides quick readings.
- These scales produce results with the same unit of measurements.
- It has a simple installation process.
- Low price at market and high availability
Advancements in weighing scale
Now the weighing machine is more digitized with an electronic display of numbers. For more precise results in weighing smaller quantities, closed chambers are designed. The extra spaces in closed chambers are vacuum, thus accuracy is maintained.
We at Crown engineering works offer an extensive variety of mechanical weighing scales. We possess 30+ years of experience in the field of weighing machines manufacturing industry. We provide trustworthy weighing scales without negative feedback from our customers over the years. Our list of products include
Heavy duty hanging dial scale: A hang-up scale made up of corrosion-resistant metal body with bottom and top hooks weighing up to 200 kgs in a single time. A fibre glass cover with a pointer shows the reading value.
Note: Should be hanged without friction
Manual platform weighing scale: This scale has a strong body for heavier weights. The brass bases are used to withstand heavy loads and have significant use in factories and other industries. This scale weighs up to 500 kgs
Manual counter weighing machine: This machine has an iron body and definite shape which weighs up to 10 kg. These scales are mostly used in grocery, vegetable shops
Commercial uses of weighing scale
We frequently notice weighing scales in grocery shops, hospitals, health and fitness centers, railway stations, gyms, meat shops and vegetable shops. In railways or harbours the dispatched or received goods are weighed using large weighing scales. Weighing scales with provision of wheels are commonly used in warehouses. The movable weighing machines are convenient in use for bigger industries and factories.
Get to know the components of the mechanical weighing scale
Base: Base is used to make up the load cell components and connections with it. A platter is a weigh pan that suits the commodity into the load cell.
Terminal: Terminal in simple terms is the display of the machine. The display has a pointer to pinpoint the results.
Considerations and benefits on purchase of mechanical weighing scale
Body of the machine: Mechanical weighing scales should be designed with heavy-duty metals like brass, iron. The spring case is produced from stainless steel or aluminum. The gears are crafted out of aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, stainless steel, nickel silver, zinc, iron, or plastic. The non-slip mat is fabricated from a mix of polyvinyl chloride and rubber.
Design: The design of mechanical weighing scales differs based on the capacity of the machines. It basically differs based on the load cell count, presence or absence of holding bar,
Position of load cell etc.,
Shape: The silhouettes are diversified on the structure of the scale pans. The scale pans are available in round, rectangle and square.
Capacity: Mechanical weighing scale has varied measuring capacities ranging from 50 kgs to 200 kgs.The weighing capacity is totally dependent on the machine type and manufacture.
Cost: Cost depends on the size and capacity of the machine. The smaller the size and capacity of a weighing, the lesser is the investment!
Quality: The quality of weighing scales is primarily dependent on the perfection of the results. More accurate machines are subjected to high-quality products. We offer ISO-certified mechanical weighing scales to customers.
Durability: The mechanical weighing scales are durable for years. It’s more like a one-time investment for a lifetime. If you purchase a single machine, it will be used for multiple weight measurements in households or industries.
Maintenance: Maintenance is quite simple and easy to clean. It will have no repair issues mostly.

Weighing scale as a fun element
There is always a craze on the railway station weighing machine. We used to drop a 1 rupee coin to check our weights. Do you remember that was the gladdest part of your childhood!
