Counting scale avoid human error

Humans have many qualities. Some are a boon for the human society such as their ingenuity. Others can often lead to problems because of the tendency of humans to make the simplest of errors. These errors are not because some people are not bright enough to know right from wrong, but often while doing routine tasks that do not require much application of the mind it wanders and the task then gets done mindlessly which can lead to the simplest of errors. The consequences of a simple error though may not be simple. They can be quite risky for the welfare of life and property.

Human beings are particularly prone to error while performing dull repetitive tasks day in and day out. It is not a greatly reliable system for example to have someone count components and bag them say in lots of fifty. At the end of the day the components may not add up and the search will start for the bag that has less or more components. And even if the components do add up one will not be sure if two errors have not been made which canceled each other out.

And the answer to this issue is why bother with human counting when you can without much cost have a faster and better method. A counting scale is an elegant solution that does not cost much at all. It will directly give you a count reading once you have entered a component weight. You can integrate it with your information system and you will not need to even note down the readings.

The advent of digital scales has made many tasks much easier than they were earlier and counting is one of them. You can get scales of very high sensitivity to be able to count small components that do not weigh a lot. They are a boon for businesses that need to be very correct in counting small but high value components. You can check out NTEP counting scales as well which are certified to perform very well and last for long.

I know there is a lot of such stuff out there because I have written on it myself often. But there is a challenge at the other end too. And that challenge is not of being able to weigh to a high degree of accuracy and being able to record even the tiniest of weight fractions. It is about...

Counting scale the digital advantage
Scales have helped mankind do work with confidence by knowing the quantity of the material being weighed. And being a smart and innovative being humans also were able to use a scale to measure the quantity if the material being weighed was in discrete parts such as components which had identical weight. And so for many applications the weight of the lot was measured and the reading obtained was divided by the weight of an individual component, and so the number of components was quickly arrived...

Counting scales beyond human limits
When you watch the Olympics you will be impressed with how far the athletes are able to push the limits of human endeavor. And yet once you throw a machine into the equation even the most incredible human performances appear slow and trivial. For example even an entry level motorcycle can beat the athletes over all the distances that they run.
