Industrial Forklift Scale

METTLER TOLEDO offers its new forklift scale, the VFS120. "In industrial environments in which reliability, safety and accuracy of data are important, these heavy-duty forklift scales can save customers time and money while managing transaction data efficiently and without error," said a company spokesperson. They are designed for use in tough industrial environments.

When weighing directly on a forklift, operators can skip the extra step of weighing later. "For freight logistics, shipping or warehousing applications, the VFS120 forklift scale offers a cost-effective solution for speeding up the pallet-weighing process," said the spokesperson.

The VFS120 forklift scale is designed to provide:

  • Accuracy over time - A patented three-point suspension offers precision over time, regardless of vibration, shaking or crashes.
  • Ruggedness and reliability - The heavy-duty scale increases productivity while reducing maintenance and downtime for low cost of ownership.
  • Safe operation - The forklift scale allows the forklift operator to see loads and position forks for lifting and avoiding accidents.
  • Easy installation - In only 15 minutes, the VFS120 scale can be installed and ready for weighing.
  • Seamless integration - The VSF120 scale's data-management software makes it easy to integrate the scale into existing business systems.

"The forklift scale maintains its accuracy in tough industrial environments, where a number of factors usually impact on-board weighing performance," said the spokesperson. "For example, angular compensation maintains accuracy regardless of the height of the forks, even if forks are at different heights as a result of wear and tear. The corner adjustment function allows for pallets to be weighed with precision, regardless of position or angle. Professional filter processing means that the scale can achieve the same accuracy on diesel forklifts as on electric ones."
