If you own a warehouse that assembles items then you probably understand how much of a challenge it can be to keep track of every single item in your facility. Do you really want to count every single screw by hand? Or what about trying to count tiny resistors or cable ties? Fortunately companies like Cardinal Scale Manufacturing in Webb City Missouri develop outstanding counting scales that are easy to use and make the job of keeping track of inventory a breeze. All you need to do is place a handful of whatever item you need to weigh on the scale, press a few buttons and you’re counting. Let’s do a quick example. Let’s say you need to count the box of nails that you have. All you need to do is count ten of the nails out and place them on the scale. Then press the number one and the number zero on the keypad, then press the sample size key. The scale will calculate the average weight of the ten pieces you placed on the scale, giving you an average piece weight and displaying quantity of 10 on the display. Now you’re ready to dump the rest of those same nails on the scale and obtain your total.

A&D Weighing FC-i Parts Counting Scales
One of the most powerful and useful features of A&D FC-i Counting Scale is ACAI, Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement. It is not a new feature but a feature AND Weighing had incorporated to the first generation of FC counting scales in order to maximize the accuracy of counting without sacrificing ease of use. However, once in a while we, and the people at the factory, get asked why it is there or even if it can be removed. The reason is simply that some operators do not understand how it works. Since the theory behind the ACAI involves some knowledge of statistical mathematics about errors, it sometimes discourages people to even try to understand what it is. In reality, ACAI is a result of the careful observation of how a counting scale is being used at workplaces. Continue reading
