Once in a while though technology simplifies things by leveraging its scientific prowess and combining it with simple elegant logic that everyone can understand. Take for example a counting scale.
Digital scales for small components saved us from doing the drudgery task of counting manually. And though it may seem that counting was a simple task that did not need to get automated when you consider a large number of expensive components that need to be counted without an error you can imagine how helpful such a device can be.
It is on the one side a refined technological product that applies complex engineering to make accurate weight measurements. On the other hand, it is an elegantly simple device that instead of counting parts weighs them with sufficient accuracy and informs the user of the number of parts that must be there to make the weight so much.
Automated scales also make it possible to feed the reading directly into your information system making the need for manual work even lesser. Being so simple to use you do not need highly trained staff to do the counting and of course, the productivity will go up by a huge amount as well.
This will help you to save time and money and you can speed up other operations which may have been slowed down by the need of counting manually, Of course, counting scales tend to be a piece of critical equipment that needs to deliver an error-free performance.
