Fast, Accurate Results - Fast piece counts -- accurate down to the last part.  No lost inventory or time wasted by inefficiently hand counting.  Three displays simultaneously show the piece count, unit piece weight and the weight readout in kilograms or pounds.

The HC-3Ki Counting Scale can pay for itself in weeks and eliminate wasting time on hand counting forever.  Counting scale are your answer to bad counts and customer complaints about shortages.  Use this counting scale to verify inventory for your company's annual audit to keep the accountants happy while control labor costs.

We all hate the boring task of counting and this counting scale is a tremendous time saver and makes your job so much easier.  You can weigh up to 6 lbs (3kg) and the scale increments in 0.001 lb (0.0005kg) graduations.  We like to tell customers if you want to count parts that weigh greater than the weights of a standard paper clip you'll have no problem finding an accurate piece count.

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.  Another feature is the Count Pre-Setting that can be programmed to cause an alarm to sound when the number of items counted on the scale meets or exceeds the number stored in memory.

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 3000 grams of parts then a 3000 gram capacity counting scales is a better choice than a 15,000 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.

The A&D HC-3KI has a lot of nice feature, but the price may be too expensive for your budget.  If money is tight and you want a simple basic counting scale then we would recommend you take a look at the ECS 7LB Counting Scale here.
