At Marsden Weighing Group, we like to provide help and guidance in using weighing scales as much as we like to provide the actual scales!
We’ve recently published a number of ‘What is…?’ blog posts related to the weighing scale industry - What is BMI?, What is NAWI?, and also an explanation on why you would use platform scales in industry.
This month, we’re treating industrial weighing scale users to two very tempting offers - 10% off all stainless steel platform, bench and floor scales (as well as non stainless steel, trade approved platform scales), as well as free carriage on all platform scales.
If you're a regular user of weighing scales, you may have come across the letters 'NAWI' in the past. To provide more background on how the weighing industry is regulated, and why Marsden's digital weighing scales are so accurate, this blog post provides an explanation of NAWI and Class III/trade approval.
NAWI is the directive behind what makes a scale Class III approved (or trade approved, as it's more commonly known in industry).
As you may already be aware NHS England are attempting to extend the availability of primary health checks to pharmacies.
We are seeing both national and independent pharmacies embracing the initiative to offer health checks, so with this in mind we have put together a list of five digital weighing scales perfect for use in health checks.
As a medical weighing scales manufacturer and seller, we deal with BMI on a daily basis. That’s in terms of answering questions about BMI, providing information on how to get BMI from your medical scales, and actually making weighing scales with a BMI function!
But having had people asking from time to time what BMI actually is - we thought we’d provide an explanation of what BMI is, how to find out your BMI… And what your BMI says about you!
Back in July, we wrote this blog post which gave three strong reasons why you would want to weigh your out-going pallets.
In the post, we talked about platform scales - a weighing solution that has many uses for a wide range of industries. Due to their versatile nature, we’ve a large range available to buy at Marsden Weighing Group.
Marsden Weighing Group has been prolific on Twitter of late. The reason? We’re looking for local breweries, and we thought tweeting about beer would be the best way to reach them!
So why are we so keen to get in touch with local real ale brewers? Well, we love real ale - but more importantly, we’ve recently been talking to a number of breweries about weighing solutions for ingredients as well as out-going bottles/kegs of ale.
As an industrial weighing scale manufacturer and supplier, one question that comes up from time to time is ‘what is a Trade Approved scale?’
Many of the industrial and retail scales within the Marsden range are Trade Approved (or Class III Approved, as it's also known). A Trade Approved scale is one that has been tested and approved for legal use in the process of selling goods.
