Hanging and Crane Scales
Hanging scales and crane scales are weighing devices used to weigh objects by suspending them from a hook attachment.
These scales can be seperated into two types: Hanging scale is a term used to describe all weighing scales that use a simple hook attachment for weighing, whilst crane scales refer specifically to suspended industrial-level weighing operations that require a crane for weighing.
Hanging scales are usually hand held and can be mechanical or digital, with mechanical hanging scales providing a low-cost, lightweight option for weighing small grocery bags or for use in field experiments. Digital hanging scales work with battery operation and are used for more technical weighing experiments. Digital models are usually more expensive than mechanical models.
Crane scales are more expensive than most hanging scale types and offer higher weight capacities (tonne ranges) required in warehouses, factories and shipyards for checking the weight of large containers or pallets.
