Central Carolina Scale Service, Repair and Calibration Information
SCALE CALIBRATION SERVICES
Calibration of a scale is a procedure in which a licensed scale technician uses a known cal test weight certified by the State of North Carolina Bureau of Weights and Measures, to test and adjust the response of a mechanical or electronic weighing system to the following tests; The display indicator must show zero when there is no weight on scale. When a known weight is applied the indicator must display the exact amount of applied weight within a specific tolerance. When weight is applied or removed incrementally the scale must display the weight equal to that on the scale within the specified tolerance mentioned above.
For the most part you should call in the professionals when it comes time to cal a scale. The pro's have the experience and the right equipment. From time to time we get asked for operator manuals or user guides for scales. Most of the time the cal instructions are listed in those manuals, however sometimes they are not. Many times if we get a request from someone looking for calibration instructions we will refer them to the manufacturer website since a number of the manufacturers have started placing the manuals online. It really depends on the type of scale and the location the customer is calling from.
It is really
rewarding every time a new customer calls or emails us looking to
have their scales and balances checked and calibrated. That is ideal
because we provide that service every day in the triangle area of
North Carolina. We obviously provide industrial
scale calibration and scale repairs but one example you might
not think about is medical scales. We do have quite a few local
customers in the healthcare industry who call us looking to ensure
their physician scales are weighing accurately. This is something
that we can certainly do since we have factory trained technicians
and certified test weights.

Calibration & Test Procedures
Load Stops: Visually inspect the over load stops for proper
clearance. Small bench scales should be loaded to capacity to determine
if the stops have sufficient clearance and with capacity weights
on the scale, gently push the platform to insure that the stops
are engaged with very little movement required.
