Piece counting is an important part of inventory control. To make it as efficient as possible, OHAUS offers a number of worthy options that are reliably precise and durable enough to handle industrial settings.
For high capacity counting of larger or heavier weight items, the OHAUS Defender® 5000 bench scale
is the right choice. Using counting mode, place a container on the pan and then tare it. Place samples in the container to determine the average piece weight and store the data as an item in the library. Auto optimization software recalculates the APW with each batch of parts to deliver precise counting results. Defender 5000 comes equipped with GLP/GMP output capability with time/date for result traceability. Each unit includes a micro SD card for storage of up to 50,000 items.
