Fairbanks Scales released its new Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale, which decreases weight times by up to 50%.
Fairbanks Scales released its new Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale, which, the company says, decreases weight times by up to 50% in applications utilizing pallet jacks.“This scale is an ideal alternative to traditional floor scales in manufacturing and warehouse applications where floor space is at a premium,” Fairbanks said.The Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale allows material handlers to capture the weight of standard and non-standard pallets and skids without removing the pallet jack. Operators can move the pallet into place over the scale, lower the pallet jack so the load is resting on the scale, capture the weight, and then raise the pallet jack to move the pallet or skid to its next location.“This innovative scale reduces weight times by eliminating the time-consuming step of pulling the pallet jack out from underneath the pallet, a difficult task with traditional ramped floor scales,” the company said. “Fairbanks’ Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale features a profile of just 2.4” tall, making it the lowest profile floor scale or U-shaped floor scale available,” the company added. “Unlike traditional floor scales that require either a ramp or pit, the scale allows for fast, easy and cost-effective installation. This rugged scale also features easy to use built-in handles, portable wheel kit, and quick-disconnect accessories, making it highly portable.” The scale has a 5,000-lb. capacity and meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s specifications, tolerances and requirements for weighing devices, according to Fairbanks.
