HIRING OF SCALES
We offer a variety of scales that can be hired out according to your needs;
Crane scales, platform scales, industrial scales and table top scales.
Please contact our sales department to see what will best suit your requirements.
Scale calibration is essential to achieve accurate weighing results. The accuracy of balances and scales become less reliable over time, therefore they need to be calibrated on regular intervals. There are various factors that affect calibration accuracy:
We offer calibrations done onsite or at our premises and we provide calibration reports with each calibration done.
MAINTENANCE & REPAIR
Weighing equipment requires ongoing support and maintenance to ensure that high level of accuracy and reliability is kept throughout the life of the scale. Maintaining your scale regularly will also prolong the life span of the scale.
We have highly skilled service technicians who will be able to do repairs and maintenance onsite or on our premises. We will be able to do repairs on most makes and models of scales and carry a wide range of spares on our premises.
We also offer telephonic technical support if you are not able to bring your scale in or are too far out for us to come to you.
SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENTS
We offer maintenance contracts which vary from 1 visit to 12 visits per year depending on your requirements.
We will assess your scales and provide a quotation on the scales that require repairs / maintenance.
We provide SLA's according to the ISO regulations. Calibrations will be supported by calibration reports or NRCS certificates. This is an extremely cost effective solution
Legal verification certifies that your trade approved scales and balances are giving the correct results. SANAS verification certificates are issued after verification and are valid for a duration of 2 years. By law, all trade approved scales and balances must be verified for trade purposes as per the Legal Metrology Act (Act no 9 of 2014)
Verifications can be done on all scales up to 4000kg, provided they are type approved scales. The verifications will be accompanied by a NRCS verification certificate.
WHO NEEDS A VERIFIED SCALE?
All industries that trade* over a scale are required to have a verified scale.
-The making, effecting or concluding of any contract, bargain, sale, purchase or transaction or any payment in connection therewith;
- any payment for services rendered;
- any measurement of a legal nature in connection with which any measuring instrument is used.
Scales required for a short period of time
Buying scales costs money and so does annual calibration in order to maintain the consistency. Hired scales are cheaper and are checked and calibrated before dispatch, allowing you to invest your money elsewhere.
When scales break down
Technicians and spare parts can take a while to arrive, hired scales lead to reduced down time.
Upcoming stock check
Counting small parts by hand is time consuming and often subject to human error. Hiring counting scales reduces the margin for error.
Lack of funds to invest / hesitant of which scales to buy
Hiring scales allows you to ´try before you buy´ and provides a cost effective short term solution.
