MWS Weighing Solutions announces new range of British-made Salus Bench Scales for the food industry  

Leicester, 9th July 2020MWS Weighing Solutions, the UK manufacturer of industrial weighing equipment, has released a new range of competitively priced single point stainless steel bench scales designed for the food manufacturing industry.

The new Salus Bench Scale range has been designed and manufactured by MWS in the UK and is available in four sizes from 250mm square through to 500mm square. The Salus scales have welded columns at the rear which allows for the Micro 600 traffic light check weighing indicator to be fitted. The Micro 600 Weight Indicator has a mains or battery power supply, with the battery life providing upwards of 50 hours making it ideal for operators running shifts. The new range has already been deployed by one of the largest potato crisp manufacturers in the UK, with plans to roll out more scales across their other sites.

Andrew Clarke, Managing Director, MWS, said, “MWS is one of the only companies still manufacturing scales in the UK, and we take great pride in producing high quality industrial weighing equipment for a wide range of industries. The new Salus range is a perfect fit for clients requesting a British made product which competes on price with imported weighing machines without compromising on quality. One of the key aspects of the Salus model is its low overall cost of ownership: spare parts are reasonably priced, and the units are simple to work on.”

Ross Tyrrell, Lead Design Engineer, MWS, added, “We have been working closely with our clients in the food manufacturing industry in order to create products that are not only robust enough to meet their needs, but are also hygienic, easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. Our engineers have been exceptionally busy working behind the scenes on new scales designed specifically for the food industry, and we’re delighted to be able to announce the first of many new products tailored specifically for this sector.”

The Salus bench scale product is available immediately from MWS Weighing Solutions and its trade partners across the UK and Europe.
