We have experience in designing and manufacturing scales for various industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, logistics, and more.

We have a proven track record of delivering innovative solutions that exceed our clients’ expectations. Whether it’s a custom weighing system for a production line, a weighbridge for a mining operation, or a specialized scale for a laboratory, we have the expertise and capabilities to meet any challenge.

Our Special Applications Department is equipped with the latest technology and equipment, including 3D printing and CAD software, to design and prototype custom solutions quickly and efficiently. We also have a dedicated quality control team that ensures all our products meet the highest standards of accuracy, precision, and reliability.

At UWE Scales, we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible solutions for their weighing needs. Our Special Applications Department is a testament to that commitment, and we take pride in delivering innovative, high-quality solutions that help our clients succeed.

Scale integration and Automation

Weighing scales are essential tools for businesses that need to accurately measure the weight or mass of products, carts, and pallets. However, manually recording these measurements can be time-consuming and prone to errors. By integrating scales with printers, businesses can print out labels and tags that include unique weight measurements for each item, making it easy to track inventory and improve productivity.

Our team of experts can help you choose the right printer and scale combination based on your specific needs. We can also guide you through the setup process, helping you select the most appropriate connection type, such as USB, RS-232, or wireless. Our goal is to provide you with a reliable and efficient weighing operation that reduces errors and saves you time.

In addition to scale and printer integration, we also specialize in automating weighing systems using Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), pneumatics, and motors. These systems allow you to control and monitor your processes with greater precision and efficiency.

PLCs are industrial computers that are ruggedized and adapted to control manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, machines, robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability, ease of programming, and process fault diagnosis. Our team can help you design and implement PLC-based control systems that meet your specific requirements.

HMIs are dashboards or screens used to control machinery and translate complex data into useful information for line operators, managers, and supervisors. Our team can help you design and implement an HMI-based control system that allows you to control your machines, vehicles, plants, or buildings with greater ease and efficiency.

Pneumatic systems provide a simple and cost-effective means to move, clamp, rotate, grind, and screw in machine automation. Our team can help you design and implement a pneumatic system that meets your specific needs and helps you save time and money.

In conclusion, integrating scales with printers and automating weighing systems with PLCs, HMIs, pneumatics, and motors can help your business increase efficiency, reduce errors, and save time and money. Our team of experts can help you design and implement a customized solution that meets your specific needs and helps you achieve your business goals.
