How are Scales Used in a Warehouse?

Weighing in any warehouse environment is an important aspect of inventory management, shipping and receiving, and overall operations. NWS Nuweigh supplies and services a wide range of weighing solutions for your warehouse. Read on to find out how scales can improve your warehouse.

Weighing for Shipments

Accurate weighing in a warehouse is important for knowing the weight of incoming and outgoing shipments, which is essential for calculating shipping costs and for billing customers. Scales are also used to weigh individual products, such as bulk materials, to ensure that the correct volume is being shipped or received. The IH1949 Floor Scale is NMI certified and specifically designed for tough, industrial environments. Available in powder-coated, stainless steel or galvanised steel construction and custom sizes.

Inventory Management

In inventory management, scales are used to weigh products to ensure that they are accurately counted and tracked. This is important for maintaining accurate inventory records, which helps warehouse managers to plan production schedules and to reorder stock before it runs out. Counting scales such as the J-1105, JAC828 or JAC919, offered only at NUWEIGH, efficiently and easily count stock.

Weighing for safety

Weighing is also important in warehouse safety. Forklifts and other material handling equipment are used to move heavy loads, and it is important to know the weight of these loads to prevent overloading and accidents. The FWS114 forklift indicator provides real-time weight measurements that are easily viewed by the driver. This enables the safe movement of stock and prevents overloading. Alternatively, the YAH pallet jack scale enables stock to be moved in tight spaces while also having each weight recorded with the in-built thermal printer.

Weighing in warehouse environments is important for inventory management, shipping and receiving, and overall operations. Accurate weighing helps to ensure that products are being shipped and received correctly, that inventory is accurately counted and tracked, and that material handling equipment is used safely.
