Fairbanks Scales, Inc., announced the new WF Series forklift scale, which features a unique design ideal for today’s mobile weighing market needs. The WF Series converts most forklifts into a precision scale in minutes.

The WF Series is the perfect choice for today’s medium-to-large warehousing applications, which are rapidly moving towards on-the-go, real-time weighing to increase profitability by reducing material handling time. The WF Series is factory calibrated, so for non-commercial applications, the customer is ready to weigh immediately after completing installation.

Incorporating a proven weighbridge design with two load cells in each weigh fork, the WF Series uses Bluetooth technology to communicate a highly accurate digital signal to the WF Series FB3200 Series instrument. Depending on the number of pallet weighments required, the WF Series could pay for itself within a few months, according to Fairbanks. 

The WF Series design has advantages over other solutions that incorporate the weighbridge into a secondary carriage plate, which changes forklift capacity center-of-balance. The design is also superior to other forklift scale solutions that use a cable between the weighbridge and the instrument, which is a known, and frequent, service problem.

A variety of features and options are available for the WF Series, including different fork lengths, remote displays, numerous capacities, Wi-Fi output, additional carriage heights, and Bluetooth output for PDA.
