Fairbanks Scales Announces New 5100 Series Silverback™ Bench Scales

Providing accurate and consistent weighing while taking the abuse of a modern production environment!

Overland Park, KS -- Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces its new 5100 Series SilverBack™ Bench Scales, a rugged platform designed for industrial, non-washdown weighing applications.

Fairbanks’ SilverBack is an incredibly rugged bench scale that features a super heavy-duty carbon steel base that has the heft and stability to handle the daily rigors of industrial environments with sustained accuracy. It is a fact that the bench scales sold to a factory or distribution center can be dropped, knocked around, struck with objects, or overloaded. Scales designed for the cautious user will be destroyed by the incautious user. The SilverBack is built to stand up to this treatment and continue to provide accurate weights. They also feature durable brushed stainless-steel shroud that simply lifts off to access the scale base.

The SilverBack bench scales are a reliable and cost-effective solution for non-food grade applications in which the scale doesn’t require high water ingress ratings and full stainless construction for washdown. Since SilverBack platforms can be paired with any analog instrument, including those produced by other manufacturers, the possibilities to create the ideal weighing solution are endless.

The SilverBack platforms feature a unique toolless installation pillar mount design that enables pillar attachment without cracking open a toolbox. The pillars are sold individually and can be paired with the analog instrument best suited for any weighing application.

The SilverBack is the industry’s most durable platform design, compatible with any analog instrument, made in USA with fast lead times, IP65/IP66 rated load cells and competitively priced. Configure the SilverBack with your analog instrument of choice to create a bench scale perfectly suited for your weighing application and budget.
