Used Conveyor Scales

Conveyor scales, or checkweighers, are designed to weigh cartons, bins, etc., during the conveying process. These are more convenient than in-ground scales and help to increase output and productivity in a warehouse. Conveyor scales are reliable and will help your business operations save on time and money that’s generally spent on redundant operations. There are numerous advantages of incorporating a conveyor scale with your conveyor system. Conveyor scales will allow you to manage and monitor your production efficiency. High-speed conveyor scales are an automated machine perfect for checking the weight rapidly while products are still in motion. Conveyor scales are useful for various applications including labeling, quality control, sortation, and shipping. Most scales and in-motion checkweighers can be easily interfaced with labeling machines to speed up your production.

There are several different styles of conveyor scale which all operate in different ways and for different purposes. The two major distinctions to be made is the difference between a traditional conveyor scale and a checkweigher. 

The most significant difference between these two pieces of equipment is what each does with the data it collects. A traditional conveyor scale simply collects the weights of the items being conveyed through it. This data can then be sent to a different piece of equipment to take an action.

A checkweigher will not only weigh the items being conveyed through it, but it will also compare the weights to your preset weight standards and then allow an action to be taken, such as stopping the conveyor or allowing any items with discrepancies to be diverted.


Conveyor scales can be an invaluable asset to any conveyor system, no matter the size. With a used conveyor scale or checkweigher from American Surplus, you can maximize your efficiency by avoiding the need to individually weigh items for quality control or shipping. We even have a selection of label makers to fully integrate the whole process.
