3 reasons why an industrial platform scale can improve workplace productivity

A platform scale is an integral part of many workplaces because it performs much needed quality control.

Without them, many processes are far harder - from checking outgoing goods are the correct quantities, to ensuring productivity is high on the production lines of your factory.

Fortunately, with affordable, easy to use options available, there is no reason why platform scales can’t be integrated wherever they are required.

Platform scales are perfect for heavy duty weighing and Marsden’s platform scales are strong and durable with a choice of capacities which means they can be tailored to your needs.

Here are the 3 reasons why an industrial platform scale improves workplace productivity:

1. Ensures quality control

One of the biggest benefits of introducing an accurate platform scale to your business is enhancing quality control protocols. Also, in many industries there are possible health risks that can be minimised with scaling and reliable production. Using platform weighing scales in processing is key for businesses to meet regulations, especially when needing to create exact measurements of products for the public. Marsden offers a full range of Trade Approved platform scales.

2. Eases workflow

Utilising Marsden platform scales enables an organisation to become more efficient by helping to save time, eliminate wastage and is ultimately a better use of human resources; thus saving money and aiding organisation growth. Marsden’s platform scales are user-friendly and come with a user guide to help the operator get started with ease. Also, if you choose a pit mounted platform scale) the scale can be left in situ when not in use, meaning that you do not need to store the scale away which takes time and manpower.

3. Peace of mind

The key to a productive workplace is reliable equipment, which is why we always recommend taking out a Service & Calibration contract. Our expert engineers can repair and re-calibrate your scales so that they stay accurate and in working order. Service contracts are available for all Marsden platform scales, giving you complete peace of mind.
