FAIRBANKS SCALES RELEASES LOW-PROFILE U-SHAPED FLOOR SCALE

New Yellow Jacket scale offers highly efficient pallet weighing

Kansas City, MO - Fairbanks Scales, Inc., a leader in weighing technology, announces the release of its new Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale, which decreases weight times by up to 50% in applications utilizing pallet jacks. This scale is an ideal alternative to traditional floor scales in manufacturing and warehouse applications where floor space is at a premium.

The Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale allows material handlers to capture the weight of standard and non-standard pallets and skids without removing the pallet jack. Operators can simply move the pallet into place over the scale, lower the pallet jack so the load is resting on the scale, capture the weight, and then raise the pallet jack to easily move the pallet or skid to its next location. This innovative scale reduces weight times by eliminating the time-consuming step of pulling the pallet jack out from underneath the pallet, a difficult task with traditional ramped floor scales.

Fairbanks' Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale features a profile of just 2.4" tall, making it the lowest profile floor scale or U-shaped floor scale available. Unlike traditional floor scales that require either a ramp or pit, the scale allows for fast, easy and cost-effective installation. This rugged scale also features easy to use built-in handles, portable wheel kit, and quick-disconnect accessories, making it highly portable.

In applications where pallet jacks are primarily used to move product, the OSHA-friendly Yellow Jacket U-Shaped floor scale can save hundreds of man-hours by eliminating the time required to remove the pallet jacket from the scale to capture the weight. The scale has a 5,000 lb capacity and meets or exceeds the National Institute of Standards and Technology's specifications, tolerances and requirements for weighing devices.
