Weighing It Up

Often taken for granted, scales and the process of weighing may not be at the top of your agenda but you might be surprised as to the vast amount of important applications that rely on accurate and reliable weighing scales. Everyone is affected by weights and measures in some way. The food we eat and all the products we use as an integral part of modern living have all been weighed and this undoubtedly makes weights and measures one of man's greatest and most important inventions in the evolution of civilisation.

In industries involving retail and warehousing, commercial scales are vital as weighing also forms an integral part of the manufacturing processes of any product. In the home we use scales every day. These might be digital scales or portable scales for cooking or weighing ourselves.

These are the obvious applications of weights and measures but their primary importance in our society is a little less explicit. Commerce would still revolve around the barter system if not for the invention of weights and measures as businesses across the country use a whole range of weighing scales in everyday operations. The medical trade illustrates another important use for weighing and measurement which could ultimately mean the difference between life and death.
