All balances begin as a concept, on rare occasions they end as one. Compare the features, look at the brand name, Mettler-Toledo, look at the price. Mettler Toledo's JB3002-G/A-F digital scale features 3100 grams maximum weighing capacity and increments in 0.01 gram divisions. Despite other balance manufactures touting they are as good as the other guy, this is the other guy Mettler Toledo and the price is mind boggling.
This mettler balance is legal for trade and offers a durable, die-cast aluminum construction. Additional features include percent weighing and piece counting modes (note since the scale is LFT the smallest part you can count is 30d, which means 0.3 grams. If you try to count parts less than 0.3g the scale will display an error code). JB-3002 precision balance from Mettler Toledo weighs only in grams while in NTEP mode. Additional weighing modes are available for weighing in Non-NTEP mode.
The Mettler JB3002-G/A-F is an unbelievable buy that will keep you out of trouble if you are selling or buying precious metals by weight. Investigators from the Arizona Department of Weights and Measures spend several days every year at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, where they checked scales used by dealers who were selling items by weight. At the 2006 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show they confiscated 145 scales that were being used illegally because they did not conform to NTEP standards
Mettler Toledo is a world renowned manufacturer of scales and balances. Mettler Toledo spends time and money on getting their products NTEP approved so jewelers can sell items by weight and not worry about having their balances confiscated. Anyone working with gold, platinum, silver or rhodium needs accurate weighing results and can't afford to give away anything. You can have complete confidence and precision weighing results with METTLER TOLEDO BALANCES.
If you want to look at alternative models recommend you take a look at the lower cost A&D FX3000iN
3200 gram with readability to 0.01 grams legal for trade balance. A&D Weighing doesn't have all the features of the Mettler like internal calibration but A&D does offer one of the longest manufacturer warranty of 5 years while Mettler is only a 1 year limited manufacturer warranty against defects.
If you noticed the Mettler JS3002-G/A looks similar to the Mettler Toledo ML3002E Classic MS Series high capacity precision balance since they are very similar except the JS3002-G/A is sold to the jewelry marketplace while the Mettler Toledo Classic ML3002E is sold to the laboratory marketplace for a lot more money. The Mettler JS3002-G/A is an unbelievable value and can save you possibly considerable money over the Mettler Toledo Classic ML3002E or ML1502E. There are some minor differences between the JS3002-G/A and the ML3002E and we always recommend you download the user manual to understand the product better and if you have any questions give us a call at 978-521-7095 and a product specialist is available to help answer your questions.
