New Roller Conveyor Scale Reduces Material Handling Time

Product weighing in manual conveyor applications can be inefficient and time consuming. Operators can save material handling time and reduce the need to lift products on and off a conveyor by using new roller conveyor scale technology.

New roller conveyor scale technology allows a conveyor to move the product rather than require someone to lift and carry it. This type of scale is reportedly ergonomically friendly and a cost-effective solution for capturing shipping weights, missing parts inspection, over/under check weighing, common carrier chargeback protection, or manufacturing applications that require manual conveyor weighing.

The new Fairbanks Roller Conveyor Scale reportedly allows material handlers, manufacturers, and distribution centers to economically speed production and increase operational efficiencies. The roller conveyor scale weighs products from 0.2 to 250 pounds and accommodates object sizes up to 32-inches by 36-inches.

The unique roller weighing platform offers easy conveyor integration, reliable performance, accuracy and durability. The scale integrates into most conveyor systems and is easily configurable with a new or existing manual conveyor.

Built for commercial or non-commercial applications, the roller conveyor scale consists of a frame with rails, galvanized steel rollers, integrated scale, and an integrated 5-digit weight display. Load cells are protected below the rollers in each of the platform’s corners. Four adjustable feet thread in and thread out and can be locked in place.

The scale can be configured longer or shorter, wider or narrower, taller or shorter, to fit the customer’s needs. The scale is powered through a USB port or with a USB-to-AC power adapter accessory.
