WEIGHING SCALE SERVICE AND CALIBRATION
Instant Weighing provides scale servicing and calibration services to our clients.
All technicians are licensed under and conversant with the recently enacted Federal Government legislation governing the calibration and testing of the Trade Approved weighing systems and can advise clients on the appropriate scales or balances for their needs.
Instant Weighing has serviced, calibrated and sold the best equipment in weighing scales and measuring technology for almost 25 years. We specialise in quality calibration and repair services for different types of weighing scales including weighbridges. We provide written calibration test reports and if a Trade Approved scales the NMI Form 6 certificate.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE TESTING OF A SCALE FOR THE NEW SOLAS/AMSA CONTAINER WEIGHING
Initial and then annual testing of any scale that will be used to determine the VGM weight of an export sea container (either Method 1 or Method 2) must be done in a special way and only Regulation 13 certified test masses can be used for the written test report to be AMSA compliant. We are finding out from very large company’s (who were not our customer), that they have just been audited by the AMSA Inspector, and that their existing written test reports were not accepted by the Inspector (when submitted as part of the audit) as being AMSA compliant. The company being audited has then had to ask Instant Weighing to redo both the testing and the written test reports, which when submitted to the Inspector, our written test reports have always been accepted as being AMSA compliant.
Remember a forklift technician cannot test scales used for AMSA export sea container weighing because:-
- they do not know the complex series of tests that must be conducted, and
- they do not use NMI Regulation 13 certified test masses during the testing
