Best Laboratory Scales/Balances
RADWAG XA 5Y.M.A Microbalance - ELLIPSIS series
RADWAG Balances and Scales

RADWAG XA 5Y.M.A Microbalance - ELLIPSIS series

Do you need a balance that not only determines weight with impressive accuracy, but also performs a digital audit, responds to your voice commands and sends you light messages?

If so, learn about the functionality of the ELLIPSIS series of balances:


Digital Weighing Auditor

Ensures that your balance is ready for use. It enables air buoyancy compensation in real-time. What is more, it informs about the need for a balance inspection or a periodic audit of the balance’s accuracy and sensitivity.


10-Inch Display

Bigger screen – 10’’ – means more information in one place. On the new ELLIPSIS terminal, you will see up to 3 screens, widgets, graphs, statuses, notes, handy measurement history.


Uncompromising User Verification

For the first time ever, the balance will verify the user using a password, RFID card, fingerprint reader, facial recognition mechanism, or any combination of these.


Automatic Leveling of the Balance ReflexLEVEL System

Instead of manually leveling your scale - level it automatically. The ReflexLEVEL System saves you time and gives you maximum precision in your measurements.


Ambient Light

An innovative way for the balance to communicate with the user. The light colour will tell you about status, process results, procedures, or alerts.



Use the balance on any device connected to it. This can be a smartphone, tablet, or computer.



ELLIPSIS works with RFID tags* that can be used to tag your products or formulation ingredients in the database. They can also be used to identify a user.


Live Note – Note Down Your Conclusions

It’s the first time you can add a voice memo to a measurement series or procedure report. If you prefer to write it down, ELLIPSIS allows you to add a text note.


Smart Min Weight

The balance displays whether the value of the weight you want to weigh is below or above the minimum weight threshold.

Best Industrial Scales
MWS Hygeia Check Weigher
Micro Weighing Solutions - MWS Ltd

MWS Hygeia Check Weigher

Designed and manufactured by MWS in the UK, the Hygeia Check Weigher is a low-cost hygienic weighing scale for use on production lines. The scale is ideal for businesses looking to control portion size and manage target weighing on production lines. 

The Hygeia features two single pieces of 304 stainless steel with the lower plate angled to allow the terminal to be mounted at the rear. There are three feet on the Hygeia check weigher which eliminates the need to level off a rocking scale that has four feet. 

The versatile scale is easy to programme and use, and comes with a high performing IP68 stainless steel weight indicator. The 40mm big coloured backlit display gives a clear view of the weight and helps the user during the weighing operations. 

The terminal features a traffic light process going from Amber – Under, Green - OK and Red – Over making portion control incredibly simple for operators. 

The Hygeia Check Weigher has been built to last and comes with a lifetime warranty on the structure of the scale.

Best Onboard Weighing Systems
Zemic B6F load cell for onboard weighing system
Zemic Europe B.V.

Zemic B6F load cell for onboard weighing system

In onboard weighing systems (OBWS), the B6F load cell is the most commonly used load cell to integrate in garbage and waste trucks. When you use load cells for waste management, you have the possibility to implement a so called “pay-as-you throw” fee. This load cell is installed in the front-end loader trucks, side loader trucks and rear-end loader trucks. Once this loadcell is installed together with the electronics, you will be able to charge for the weight of the garbage that is collected. A single bin can be weighed automatically. You can also encourage people to reduce residual waste.

Besides the fact that you are able to invoice based on weight, you will also have real time information about the transportation weight. The accumulated weight can also be calculated. A garbage monitoring system can help enterprises gain insight into the garbage collection.

The B6F is a stainless steel single point load cell. It is available in 50 kg - 2000 kg capacities. This load cell has an OIML approval. This means it is suitable for legal for trade applications.

When a stainless steel load cell is overrated for your garbage truck, this model is also available in aluminium (L6F) and alloy steel (H6F).
