Truck scales are immensely valuable in industries where inbound and outbound material weights are important. Often, they act as a “cash register for your operation” or monitor material weights for quality purposes. The most widely known use of truck scales are the large platform scales which can be seen along interstates to ensure compliance of weight on roads. However, truck scales are present everywhere and have an impact on products most people use on a daily basis.
For example, in the grain handling industry, truck scales accompany grain silos to measure material for valuation, and they are also used as a primary checkpoint to measure inbound material in manufacturing processes. No matter what your truck scale is used to weigh, proper calibration is important to ensure vital measurements remain consistently correct.
Cross knows this importance and our truck scale calibration services make use of Handbook 44 procedures to ensure the results are precise and reliable. Our fleet of high capacity test trucks carry up to 20,000 pounds of certified weight in addition to certified weight carts. This allows our licensed technicians to perform specialty strain tests which protect against multiplying error.
As a precision measurement provider since 1939, Cross technicians also have industry leading technical background, and with an uncertainty of .017% per 1000 lb +.6 (device resolution in micro inches) are ISO 17025 accredited to calibrate weigh scales to meet your states legal for trade requirements.
