Digital Counting Scales
Most digital scales, as well as some balances, have the ability to perform basic counting. However with the demands for tighter stock control and miniature components, scale manufacturers have developed dedicated counting scales.
Dedicated counting scales have 3 displays (Weight / Unit Weight / Count) and are able to take the unit sample weight of individual items. This increases the scales counting accuracy.
Non-dedicated counting scales are general weighing scales with an added basic counting function. These scales have only one display and can only take sample weights in multiples (eg. 10, 20, 50). Although these scale are not as advanced as dedicated scales, they do provide an affordable alternative.
