Also known as: hook scale, suspended weighing scale, overhead weighing machine, and hoist scale. The Industrial crane scales are used for weighing a hanging load. When industrial needs are concerned, very heavy, sometimes bulky loads are involved which are not always easy to place on the scales for determining the exact weight. Crane scales represented by a variety of models, with different range and weighing capacity, offer a solution for the problem how to weigh a nonstandard oversized load under industrial conditions
Based on their technical features and specifications, the application field of crane scales is wide: heavy industry, construction, transport and aerospace, various types of mills and factories, marine etc. – in other words, anywhere where the load cannot be lifted up and weighed by the person. When there is a necessity to get an immediate indication of the load and to measure tensile forces, the load cells or load links, both belonging to the load indicators, can be used. These types of crane scales are especially good for load monitoring, are lightweight, but robust and due to the electronics are likely to provide precise result in the fields of force measurement. Some crane scales can be operated via a remote control.
