Mechanical Balances

Mechanical Balances

Mechanical balances are a truly historical style of scale. They were originally used as a balancing beam scale to measure objects of equal weight to determine the legitimacy of a sale. As in all things the designs were change over time to the new mechanical balances we see today. From the basic dial scales and beam scales that you might see at the doctor to the mechanical balances used in classrooms and laboratories.

Mechanical scales and balances do hold some advantages to an electronic balance. In many cases they are a much cheaper option of a scale. They also do not require a power source for obvious reasons. A mechanical balance also requires minimal calibrations and has a long life expectancy.
