Logistics including shipping, warehousing and inventory management are critical to the success of your business.
For shipping and warehousing needs in rugged environments, a forklift scale can be the most appropriate and practical way to obtain an accurate measurement of weight.
Here, we’ll talk about the Mettler Toledo VSF120 forklift scale, why it should be used and how it can benefit the user.
VSF120 Forklift Scale: Features and Benefits
The VSF120 is designed for industrial weighing and is most commonly found in a warehouse or warehouse-like environment. The main reason why one would use a forklift scale is to speed up the pallet weighing process. Instead of transporting each pallet load to a stationary scale just for weighing, the load can be weighed as it is being lifted by the forklift.
The VSF120 is designed to operate in tough environments. It has the following features and benefits:
- Three-point scale suspension to maintain accuracy and reduce the need for frequent recalibration
- Robust design that allows for heavy industrial use and minimizes downtime
- Easy installation that can let a forklift operator start weighing in 15 minutes
- Can withstand 150% overload
- Contains protected load cell electronics and wiring via a hardy steel frame
- Compact terminal design for optimal visibility
Mettler Toledo produces the VSF120 forklift scale with capacities ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 pounds (1,500 to 5,000 kg). The load cells are TSH load cells with IP68 protection and made from stainless steel for more durability. The entire load cell apparatus is contained within a steel enclosure for maximum longevity.
Thanks to the MT design, the VSF120 forklift scale retains its calibration for 12 months, so it stays accurate longer than other models. Managers enjoy the ruggedness and reliability of the forklift scale, which helps cut down on costs, and operators appreciate how the scale is designed with safety in mind.
Finally, like with all MT products, the VSF120 forklift scale is built to offer lower total cost of ownership throughout the considerable lifespan of the product, which can help the bottom line of the company that purchases it.
