Shimadzu - Precision Platform Balance - BX-K/BW-K Series

The patented UniBloc (OPF) sensor achieves high-performance, compact size, and durability at the same time. Shimadzu introduced this wire-cut block sensor to high-precision platform balances in 1989. Combination of low-profiled body and large pan is for operator comfort during bulk weighing.

Large-capacity balances with fine readability offer various possibilities for industries: weighing precious materials in bulk, efficient but precise compounding, confirming small parts not missing in a large assembly, etc. UniBloc technology gives fast response, display stability and endurance, all of which are essential for large-capacity industrial balances.

Key features

  • WindowsDirect: The balance communicates directly to a PC with Windows® applications. No additional software is needed to interface with spreadsheet, database, word processing, and laboratory software
  • Superior durability
  • Guaranteed sensitivity (Internal resolution is one digit finer level than display)
  • Selectable weighing modes
  • Autoprint
  • Analogue display modes
    - Full range (Bar graph clearly indicates the total weight (including the tare) as a portion of the balance capacity)
    - Fill in (The display clearly indicates when the target weight and tolerance are reached)
    - Checkweighing (Set an upper and lower limit. The display continually indicates whether the sample is within, over or under the range)
