One of the most important considerations when choosing an agricultural scale is the incorporation of both technology as well as easy of application. For most scales, regardless of the manufacturer, the designs are fairly similar based on the specific application. When it comes to displays, use of technology and fully integrated systems some companies, such as Avery Weigh-Tronix, really stand apart.
While the Avery Weigh-Tronix is well recognized as a top scale manufacturer for all types of industrial and commercial applications, they also have a complete agricultural scale line. Produced with typical farm operating conditions in mind, these scales, and the included technology, give farmers, farm managers, and equipment operators everything they need to ensure accurate measurements in all parts of the agriculture industry.
One consideration in agricultural scales on grain farms is a bulk bin scale. This allows ease of both loading bins and also ensuring trucks are loaded to maximum capacity without going over.
Other options for grain scales include the use on grain carts, harvest equipment, and mixers, allowing accuracy at every step in the planting, harvesting and transporting.
With the use of an Avery Weigh-Tronix indicator, the weight is quickly displayed on an easy to read display. In addition, these displays offer a simple zero key between loads, and there is also a gross/tare/net option which can easily be set as needed.
The technology with these systems of Avery Weigh-Tronix scales also includes the option to transfer the data to a printer with a quick push of the printer button, but it can also be set to management software on computers or displayed on a mobile device.
The Avery Weigh-Tronix scale line also includes livestock scales. These scales have unique technology that allows for motion filtering, providing a much more accurate reading even with moving livestock on the scale platform.
The amazing displays offered by Avery Weigh-Tronix can provide the same level of automation and technology as seen with their grain scales. With a color display, the option to load custom software, including herd management software, keeping track of production is never a problem. With this added feature of loading the software into the display unit there is also a decrease in the amount of equipment needed to provide effective management over the entire farm, from seeding, fertilizing and harvesting to weighing feed and livestock growth monitoring.
