High-throughput and tough environments are the norm in transport and logistics operations, and measurements are often mission-critical.

Downtime or out-of-specification performance can mean missed revenues, added costs and customer dissatisfaction. We have robust and reliable solutions to ensure up-time.

  • You can be confident that up-time is maximized thanks to our unparalleled field service team, help desk, parts supply chain, and use of remote services.
  • You can rest assured that we will execute service calls on-time with the right skills, right tools, right parts, and expert support.
  • Original, high-quality parts availability is guaranteed through our field-stock plan and efficient parts logistics organization.
UP-TIME SERVICES INCLUDE:

Onsite and Depot Repair

In case of breakdown or poor performance caused by a malfunction, our field service force will quickly have you running again. Depot repair is an option for equipment that is easily transported.

Help Desk and Remote Support

The most efficient resource for downtime avoidance is our field and in-house helpdesk expertise. In some cases, we can even solve problems via remote connectivity.

Spare Parts

We use analysis and carefully designed processes to ensure parts availability and make recommendations if you wish to carry an in-house stock.

Refurbishment

Timely refurbishment of equipment may be a wise investment over replacement; we start with a cost/benefit analysis.

Weighing scales have become very high-tech devices. From bathroom scales with wi-fi connection to ultra-precise devices used in research or industry, modern scales are able to provide very accurate measures almost instantly. This has not always been the case however and today we take a look at the different systems that emerged over the millennia.

brennusWeighing scales are born of necessity. As trading developed during the Antiquity, merchants needed a way to assess the value of goods that could not simply be counted by the pieces, like irregular-shaped gold nuggets for instance. The most ancient relics of a weighing scale have been discovered in the Indus River valley, near present day’s Pakistan, and are dated back to around 2,000 B.C. Those first weighing scales were actually balances, using two plates attached to an overhead beam, itself fixed on a central pole. The measure was made by putting the object measured on one plate and weight-setting stones on the other, until equilibrium is reached.

The most modern body-scales rely on electronics to measure the weight of their users. By sticking electrical resistances on deformable materials and running a current through them, it is possible to detect variations in the conductivity of the resistances that are correlated to the amount of pressure exerted on the material, and thus to deduce the weight of the person (or the object) standing on the scale. The most high-end body-scales also act as impedance meters and are able to calculate the ratio of fat mass and lean mass in the body. The measure of impedance is done by generating a very small electrical current on the surface of the scale and measuring the resistance encountered by the current as it travels through the body. Lean mass is a better conductor than fat mass and it is therefore possible to deduce the ratio of both in the body.
