Unlike some other counting scales on the market the HC-i Electronic Counting Scales offers an accumulator function enabling you to track all pieces counted for those larger jobs.

Try to avoid purchasing a counting scale with more capacity than you typically will be needing. If 90% of the time you will be counting no more than 15,000 grams of parts then a 15,000 gram capacity counting scales is a better choice than a 30,000 capacity scale since you may be sacrificing resolution which is critical to the accuracy of your counts. In those situations where the items being counting will weigh greater than the capacity of the scale, you simply count half the items and then the second half. A&D recommends the average piece weight (APW) must be greater than or equal to the readability of the scale. We offer 4 different models of the HC-i digital counting scale and you can view a comparative table here.
