Flexible design with detachable indicator, large LCD and an easy-to-operate design
makes the new A&D our #1 economy counting scale. Copy centers, print
shops, document control departments can count standard 8 1/2 x 11 sheet paper or business cards with the HC-6Ki
paper counting scale. Eliminate those phone calls - "You short us again!"
Eliminate those tough decisions of losing a good customer or going back to the
press costing you $100's in plates and stock.
The HC-6Ki can pay for itself in weeks and eliminate wasting time on hand counting
forever. A&D Weighing is the global leader in parts counting scales
and your answer to bad counts and customer complaints about shortages. Use
this digital counting scale to verify that you have enough stock before starting the business
and to ensure that the final counts are accurate.
Again and again customers call us to tell us - "The A&D HC6-Ki Counting
Scale works great and I wish I had purchased it sooner!" The scale
is a tremendous time saver and makes my job so much easier.
You can weigh up to 15 lbs (6kg) and the scale increments in 0.002 lb (0.001kg)
graduations. We like to tell customers if you want to count parts that
weigh greater than the weights of a standard 8 1/2" x 11 sheet of paper
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 6000
grams of parts then a 6000 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-6KI 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 16LB Counting Scale here.
