This week, we’ve mostly been visiting locations across the Yorkshire region, testing out weighing scales from our extensive range.
Yesterday, we were at JH Mann’s, a traditional fishmonger in the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield, demonstrating not just how easy to use the B-100 stainless steel scale is, but how it can be dipped in a bucket of water - and still come out working!
In June 2015, the National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) issued a report on a national project undertaken in 2014/2015 to assess the suitability of weighing instruments in doctors’ surgeries, health centres, health visitors and pharmacies
Precise measurements are not always necessary in cooking but are critical if you want to have a real baking success.
Measuring and weighing is one of the biggest reasons that baking endeavours fail - for example, using too much flour can lead to rock hard cookies, tough bread and less than fluffy cakes. One simple way to gain perfection every time is to weigh your ingredients, which the Marsden B-100 bench scale is ideal for!
“Inconsistencies in recording patient body weight, as well as using inaccurate or inappropriate weighing equipment, can have a negative impact on patient care” (Clarkson, 2012)
If you’re a pharmacy, you’ll likely have heard of the Government’s NHS Health Check Programme and how you can benefit from it.
If you haven’t: In a nutshell, the NHS Health Check Programme is a Government initiative designed to relieve the pressure on GP practises - and provide pharmacies with an extra income stream in the process.
This year, we answered the prayers of dogs and cats the world over with the launch of our brand new veterinary scale.
The new veterinary scale - the V-22, a medium-sized veterinary scale, it has a capacity of 20kg and an accuracy of 5g. It also has a large, clear LCD display and is lightweight enough for portability and easy storage.
Crucially - to help save the dignity of nervous pets - the V-22 Veterinary Scale has a wipe-clean surface, making it a popular choice for pooches who get just a little too jittery at weight check time. It is suitable as both a cat scale and a dog scale,
To mark its success, we’ve created a free puppy chart for you to download. It’s a great reference for anyone visiting your veterinary practice who wants to make sure their canine friend is, well, fit as a butcher’s dog! Continue reading
We’ve been selling bed weighing scales for years - and there are already several bed weighing scale options in our range that are popular with hospitals and care homes.
However, we were getting a lot of feedback from customers that a more portable bed weighing scale was required, that could be brought to the bed rather than the bed wheeled to the scale. After much development and testing prototypes with actual beds (with much help provided by Benmor Medical.) the result is the M-950 bed weighing scale.
It’s basically four pads that can be placed under the wheels of the bed, each pad containing a pair of load cells, meaning minimal movement of the bed is required. Of course, like many of our scales for the medical industry, the M-950 Bed Weighing Scale is Class III approved and allows Continue reading
There’s one way you can guarantee that what’s going out of your warehouse or factory is going out in the right quantities: by weighing it.
Of course, you can count what’s on an outgoing pallet, but a simple weighing of the pallet ensures that you have exactly the right number, the right size, and so on. Weighing a pallet with, say, a pallet truck scale is quick and easy, and making sure what leaves your business and goes to a customer is correct keeps your brand’s reputation intact, and avoids any expensive rectifying.
Having dealt with hundreds of businesses over the years who use pallet truck scales (or pump truck scales as they’re also known) or other weighing solutions to check the weight of their outgoing goods, we’ve listed three reasons why pallet weighing is an essential part of shipping products from your warehouse or factory.
