Measurement products and services for operational efficiency

Measurement equipment in the mining and aggregates industries needs to be particularly heavy duty, as it has to stand up to tough environmental conditions and a high number of weighments.  However, Cross’s Precision Measurement Group (formerly branded J.A. King) has decades of experience with scales in tough situations. Our in-house construction crew and sales engineers are MSHA-certified, so you can be sure they’ll work to the highest safety standards.

Common to all mining and quarrying operations is a truck scale and ours are some of the best in the business.  We’re proud to represent brands like Mettler Toledo, Rice Lake and Fairbanks, all of whom offer super heavy capacity truck scales.  Our scales for mining and aggregates feature heavy duty decks, high quality construction and tough overall scale build.  Cross can also design and build a custom automated kiosk specifically suited to your operational needs.

We work with you to understand your particular needs and recommend products that maximize your uptime.  Cross knows that sand and gravel wear scale components very quickly, so the less moving parts, the better.   Concrete truck scale decks, which don’t move or swing as much, and rocker column load cells are well suited for these types of environment.

Cross Precision Measurement also provides scale calibration and repair, not only on truck scales, but also on belt scales and smaller lab balances and bench scales.  With 24/7, 365 call service available, you can be sure your scales are up and running when you need them.

Providing Tangible Value

  • Improve Accuracy of your Weighments: Regular calibration and repair help ensure your weights are right every single time
  • Reduce Risk of Downtime: Regular calibration and repair are essential in the harsh environments of mines and aggregate producers.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
