Scales and Weighing Systems
key to offering affordable, efficient and effective products is to
bring together generalized, mass-produced products and small production
specialized products for particular purposes. Our products
are partly purchased and partly manufactured by our sub-contractors to
accomplish this goal of performance and economy.
systems and supporting products are intended to bring the economic and
management benefits of electronic weighing in an affordable form to the
average small operator.
Hydraulic Pressure Weighing Systems: Low Cost, Check Weighing
LTWS-1 Patriot Model; Liberty-3 No-Frills Model; Liberty-5 Full Feature Model
These scales convert the hydraulic pressure require to lift or suspend a load to a displayed weight.
Scales based upon hydraulic pressure are the universal remedy for lifting and loading check-weigh applications.
systems consist of essentially a digital display, a pressure transducer
and a conversion circuit to convert pressure signals to weight displays.
Advantages are low cost and simple installation.
and repeatability at best are within +/- 1 or 2% of the rated capacity
of the system and may exceed 5%, depending upon operation and
The primary disadvantage of hydraulic
weighing systems is that the repeatability and accuracy are highly
dependent upon machine operation.
Instrumented Forks: Best accuracy, Convenient Fork Change
Liberty-4 Instrumented Forks; Liberty-7 Instrumented Front Forks
These scales utilize load-cells for direct measurement and display of weight on the forks, similar to a standard floor scale.
forks are the mobile equivalent of a standard floor scale and provide
very accurate weighing for many applications.
These forks mount on standard 16 inch rails and replace your standard forks.
are accuracy, repeatability and ease of interchangeability from
one truck to another, or swapping between measuring forks and standard
Disadvantages are higher cost, thicker, "fatter" forks" and increased susceptibility to physical damage.
Bolt-on Weighing Systems: Best accuracy, Standard Forks
Liberty-11 Hanging Fork System
scales are complete, unitized and fully integrated weighing systems
which either replace the fork carriage or bolt on to the fork carriage.
The Bolt-On system may use custom forks or standard forks.
Accuracy of the Bolt-On systems are very good, normally within +/- 0.1% ~0.2% accuracy and repeatability of load weight.
are higher cost, nominal loss of total lift capacity, relatively
permanent installation and increased vulnerability to physical
