Adam Equipment (United Kingdom) - UK weighing scale manufacturer Adam Equipment is launching what it calls “an offensive on gross industry wastage” and aiming to offer customers longer-lasting products that require less maintenance, starting with their latest CBX Portable Bench Scale.
With pressure increasing on businesses to reduce waste - the UK Government announced in November that it was spending £22.5 million on helping to curb industry waste(1) - Adam Equipment is focusing on weighing scales that not only last longer, but do not require recalibration by an engineer. The lifespan of a weighing scale in daily industrial use is typically one to two years – sometimes less.
The CBX, a compact bench scale that also has the functionality of a counting scale, is made from durable ABS plastic, has external calibration meaning it can easily be recalibrated using weights by the owner, and is covered by Adam’s 24-month warranty. It’s available now via Adam Equipment distributors.
“We recognise that industry is facing growing pressure to reduce waste. One of the most obvious ways to help with this is providing products built to last longer,” said Richard Storey, Managing Director at Adam Equipment.
“The CBX perfectly represents our aim to offer our customers long term value for money and reduce industry waste. A two year warranty underlines our confidence in the durability of this product.
“While many weighing scales are made cheaply to keep cost down, but ultimately offer a short working life, we’re launching what we’re calling an offensive on gross industry wastage.”
With capacity options upto 6kg, and accuracy as low as 0.1g, the CBX is designed for precision weighing and counting tasks.
The internal rechargeable lithium battery will last 216 hours between charges, and the 304 food grade stainless steel platter makes the scale ideal for the food industry. It boasts parts counting capabilities with preset sample sizes.
