Kansas City, MO – May 17, 2012 – Fairbanks Scales, Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S., is announcing the release and is now taking orders for the Pallet Weigh and Pallet Weigh Plus material handling pallet jacks with integrated scales. The Pallet Weigh line of products provides material handling professionals a versatile product with a rich set of features to streamline warehousing tasks. Pallet Weigh products are currently available through Fairbanks’ nationwide sales and service organization.

In the past, material handling professionals were dependent on two devices to accomplish warehousing tasks; a floor scale and material handling equipment. With warehousing square footage at a premium and better used for inventory, installing floor scales is not always an attractive option. The Pallet Weigh product line solves this problem by integrating the scale into the material handling device. With Fairbanks’ Pallet Weigh, material can be weighed and moved at the same time.

Fairbanks’ Pallet Weigh incorporates some key features to efficiently complete common material handling tasks, all from one device. With the Pallet Weigh’s summing feature, a truck can be optimally loaded with inventory while accumulating weight totals to prevent a costly truck overload. When receiving goods, the Pallet Weigh efficiently captures accurate weights while off-loading to verify accuracy of freight invoicing. The counting feature can optimize inventory by using weight to alert personnel to the container’s piece count. The optional printer can generate weight documentation right from the instrument.

The versatility and rich feature set of the Pallet Weigh enhances the other products offered by Fairbanks in the material handling segment. The complete line of floor scales and fork truck scales, along with Fairbanks’ nationwide network of factory-trained sales and service professionals makes Fairbanks a trusted one-stop shopping partner.
