You can connect various peripherals to scales and balances but sometimes, scales have the printer integrated in the indicator for convenience. Should you get a scale with a built-in label printer? What are the benefits? Are there drawbacks? Do you need one?
Determining an object’s density tell us a lot about it. What can we learn from density?
Many factors can affect the results you obtain from your scale or balance, including the environment where you’re conducting measurements. It’s important to understand which weight fluctuations are caused by vibrations or air currents and which are caused by your equipment. In this post, we’ll go over some common causes of results changes and how to handle them.
If you’re interested in a balance’s data communication capabilities, you might have noticed the section concerning baud rate in the manual. What is the baud rate? How does it relate to scales and balances? How can it be used to your advantage? Let’s take a look at serial communication.
It’s time to learn about another (relatively) obscure feature: the peak hold. Available on floor scales and analytical balances alike, it’s a versatile functionality that is not very well known. What does it do? Why is it useful on a weighing scale? How should you use it? Do you need it? Let’s find out.
Scales and balances can be helpful to ensure you’re adding the correct amount of ingredients to your recipes and formulations or for scaling up existing formulations. But rather than weighing just one ingredient at a time, what if there was a better, more efficient way? That’s where the scale’s formulation function comes in.
