In this time of uncertainty, how important is it to save MONEY? Of course we both know the answer. Advanced Weigh Technologies, Inc. (AWT) is offering you a solution to savings. Aright you’re asking, how can a scale company save me money? EASY!

Let’s consider the facts –
  1. Do you take inventory?
  2. How many of your personnel does it take to count the items in bins? What if it took less then 2 employees to achieve the same task and with more accuracy. Would that save money?
  3. How acute is the counting process?

Achieving inventory control requires a delicate balance.
Too much inventory is money sitting on the shelf that could
be put in the bank. Too little inventory means manufacturing
down time and missed shipments. An accurate parts inventory leads to greater efficiency at a lower cost —

Maintaining quality control is also critical. Companies want to give their customers exactly what they paid for. Time and again, shipping less than ordered leads to dissatisfaction and lost customers. Accuracy translates to freeing up of capital, employees and having satisfied customers.

If you paid four to six employees a weekend rate to come in and do inventory, you would more then pay the cost of a new counting scale, in addition, you would have this unit all year to count manufactured items, shipping items using one employee rather then multiple employees. ACCURACY = MONEY – LOST OR SAVED. Would you rather see your money go down the drain, or in the company’s pocket. Makes for a nicer bonus.

Please go to our web page and see the counting scales we offer. We have Avery Weigh-Tronix PC-902 and 905 at different weights and resolutions’. We also have Rice Lake Digi® DC-788 Series as well as the Ohaus® Series.

At Advanced Weigh Technologies, Inc. we have the experience and knowledge to meet your needs. Call us @ 713-691-4878 for more information or visit our website at or write us at

Anyone of us will be more then happy to come out and survey your operation and make recommendations on how to SAVE MONEY today. In addition, AWT also carries an assortment of scales as well as having the capability of servicing your present scales.

Have a great MARCH, and don’t forget to save some MONEY!

Choosing the Right Scale and Company for your application

Whether you are looking for a Lab Scale or a Truck Scale, you must choose the scale application the best suits your scenario. For example, consider the following:

Will it save the company money by reducing product loss because we were guessing the weight? Will it reduce labor cost on loading and/or unloading? – A Floor Scale verses a Fork Lift Scale, one is stationary and one is moving, which means to you, that you can weigh with a Fork Lift Scale on the run. Loading and/or unloading time has decreased, and productivity time has increased.

In today’s economy saving money is important, so why are you giving it to the freight companies? The right tool to have is your own shipping scale in order to verify your shipping weight. We had one client come back to us and state that on one shipment alone he challenged the freight company and the difference in charges paid for the scale.

Let’s go back to the original question, what scale is right for me? You may have already approached this concept and now you’re starting to shop around. Remember, you are not buying groceries where a nickel here or a dime there will make a difference. You are looking at an investment that is supposed to save you money, now that doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune to get the best application.

· Who should I call?
· Why do I need someone else to advise me?
· Why can’t I just make a request by phone or e-mail?

Who Should I call? A company that deals in nothing more then quality service and sales of scale equipment etc.; a company that has been in business for over 20 years; a company that has qualified and certified technicians to address your technical problems; and most important, a company that cares.

Why do I need someone else to advise me? It is like any major purchase, you know what you want, but the mechanics of getting it may require an outside source that deals in this type of operation, who can advise you on what will work at the best price, or as they say, “the best bang for your buck.”

Why can’t I just make a request by phone or e-mail? You can! However, by setting up a meeting in person and listening to your needs, along with a site tour of your operation will assist us in making the best recommendation in solving your weighing issues and saving you money.

Lift Truck Scales


In many operations, weighing is considered an extra step
that takes too much time. It’s easier to estimate the weight
than travel to a floor scale and wait for access. Guessing costs
businesses millions in revenue every year.

A forklift scale allows seamless integration of weighing and
data management into your operation – without adding any
extra steps or route changes.

The FLSC Forklift Scale System was specically developed for
industrial/commercial applications and incorporates design
features to weigh accurately under all conditions.

The FLSC is the latest model in a long line of reliable, robust
forklift scales from Avery Weigh-Tronix going back over 25 years.

So the next time you are wondering why your forklift drivers are running around in circles and waiting to weight at the one and only floor scale you have - consider the advantages of a forklift scale.
  • The scale is part of the fork lift - always avaliable
  • All weighing is done on the fork lift - very convenient
  • Legal for Trade - highly accurate
