Warehouse Floor Scales

Warehouse Floor Scales


Mel Joelle

Getting a warehouse floor scale can make your business work better. Industrial quality floor scales made by ArlynScales are built to last a very long time, and can be customized to multitask.

If you are in the warehouse business, then having a sturdy, sophisticated floor scale can save you time and money. Shipment warehouses (among others) must also log the weights of items to be shipped to ensure cost effectiveness, alleviate safety concerns related to long distance transport of goods, and keep regular inventory.

Usually in a warehouse or factory setting, the transportation of heavy loads from one end of the company to the other is routinely done using forklifts, pallet jacks, or even a small tractor. It would not be economical to do these types of jobs by hand even partly. If the load transported on a pallet needs to be unloaded by hand from the pallet in order to be weighed, you have already lost both time and money.

What you need is a floor scale with tare functions, an easy zero button, and a net/gross switch. That way, you can just roll a pallet jack with a heavy load on top of the scale platform, and with the touch of a button, easily subtract the weight of the pallet jack/ forklift. The same could be said of larger floor scales that have to accommodate very high capacity loads which must be driven onto the scale platform in a vehicle of some kind.

At ArlynScales, our digital floor scales have displays with all these functions and much more. You can get one that can sort and batch your loads for you. It can be programmed to give you item descriptions, provide parts counting, and printer layouts. Then once you are done weighing a batch, you can print all this data wirelessly by connecting your scale it to a printer located somewhere else in your warehouse. This will help you easily create of accurate manifests and/ or product logs.

We have developed software downloads to help you do more than this. You can select from different technologies we have available that will allow you to send data from your floor scale remotely to a computer database program, for highly accurate tracking of all products in your warehouse. These reports would be free of human error, since all data is sent directly from the scale. There would be no need to record the weights separately and then manually input them into your company s database. Products available from ArlynScales that can be loaded into your floor scale s digital display to make your warehouse more productive include:

* Ethernet Connectivity

* RS-232 Computer/ Printer port

* RS-485 port

* Memory Card Datalogging

* USB port

* Winwedge- Windows Interface Software for RS-232

* And much more.

In addition, ArlynScales makes our floor scales out of rugged welded steel, or optionally, from stainless steel. In fact, even our load sensors are made of stainless steel for maximum durability. Many other manufacturers don t bother with the expense of using stainless steel load sensors, but the result is a scale that doesn t last as long as ours. Other weaker metals bend and break under the continued pressure of heavy loads, and they are less corrosion resistant.

If you need a floor scale for your warehouse, contact us today for a superior quality model that will do more than just weigh loads for you.

French authorities have today revealed that Air France Flight 447 sent 24 error messages shortly before the plane disappeared during the flight between Rio de Janeiro and Paris with 228 people on board. They also said that the plane’s auto-pilot was not active, although they say that from the error messages it is impossible to determine the reason for it being inactive. The crash is said to be the world’s worst aviation disaster since 2001.

Officials have still not determined the reason for the flight’s disappearance or located the wreckage of the plane, but have said that it was flying through an area of “powerful cumulo-nimbus” clouds. The authorities continued saying, “these are found frequently in this area and in normal climactic [sic] conditions”. However other meteorologists said the jet was entering a zone with unusual storms and 100mph updrafts which could have formed a vacuum, sucking water up from the ocean.

Fourteen of the error messages sent by the system were done so within a period of one minute, 2:10 a.m. – 2:11 a.m. UTC. It is thought that some of the error messages are related to the flight speed and controls related to auto thrust. Paul-Louis Arslanian, director of the French air accident investigation agency, said that the error messages indicated systems had shut down one after another. He also confirmed that the plane in question had encountered difficulties with measuring its speed and that Airbus was currently completing “a programme of replacement, of improvement”.

Airbus and Arslanian insist that planes are still safe, however Airbus have since re-sent information regarding difficulties with calculating speed and confirming their advice in such situations.

Previous announcements by the Brazilian air force that they had successfully located part of the wreckage of flight 447 have turned out to be false after ships recovered unrelated debris from the sea. After recovering debris from the sea, including a cargo pallet and two buoys, Brigadier Ramon Cardoso, the director of Brazilian air traffic control said, “[U]p to now, no material from the plane has been recovered.”

He continued, “We confirm that the pallet found is not part of the debris of the plane. It’s a pallet that was in the area, but considered more to be trash. The pallet was made of wood, and the Air France Airbus A330 did not have any wooden pallets on board. That’s how we can confirm that the pallet isn’t part of the remains of the aircraft”. It is thought the pallet came from a passing ship which is also being blamed as to the reason for the oil slick spotted in the area.

David Learmount, operations and safety editor of Flight International magazine, said: “The fact that the autopilot was not working is not the cause of this accident”, continuing by saying it is “not at all unusual” for the autopilot to cut out, alerting the pilots with a loud warning, adding “it’s not the cause, it’s the symptom” of the accident.

He also said that it was “designed to cut out at any time that it receives conflicting messages, which we know it was” and that “It’s designed to cut out rather than controlling the airplane in an unsafe way – it’s not an intelligent system, it doesn’t know which of the data are correct.”

Rescuers have long since given up on attempting to find any survivors instead now trying to locate and recover the wreckage of the flight and more importantly the flight data recorders, without which they say they may never know what happened to the flight. The process of recovery is expected to be difficult with the seabed reaching depths of 3,000 to 4,000 meters. Both American and French specialist equipment has been sent to the area with the aim of recovering the recorders, however French officials say that the locator beacons attached to the boxes could possibly have become detached by the force of the impact.

Speculation has been rife as to the thought cause of the flights disappearance, ranging from a direct lightning strike to weather in the area, however recently a Spanish pilot has said, via his airline Air Comet, that on a flight in the area he saw an “intense flash of white light”. The report, initially released by the Spanish newspaper El Mundo and then confirmed by AFP also said a co-pilot and passenger also saw the bright light.

“Suddenly, we saw in the distance a strong and intense flash of white light, which followed a descending and vertical trajectory and which broke up in six seconds” the unidentified captain said.

A package of six media reform bills introduced last week before Australia’s Parliament — including one proposing appointing a Public Interest Media Advocate (PIMA) to monitor print and online sectors — was shelved yesterday by the Australian Labor Party, with only two passed before a seven week break for the country’s legislative body. Stephen Conroy, the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, had hoped to see the legislation package passed by the end of the week.

The six-bill media advocacy legislation package, including Public Interest Media Advocate Bill 2013, Broadcasting Legislation Amendment (Convergence Review and Other Measures) Bill 2013, Broadcasting Legislation Amendment (News Media Diversity) Bill 2013 which includes provisions related to news media and PIMA, News Media (Self-regulation) (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2013 which would require media organisations to be registered with the government to enjoy protections traditionally enjoyed by journalists and the media, News Media (Self-regulation) Bill 2013 which creates PIMA, and Television Licence Fees Amendment Bill 2013, were introduced Thursday February 14 before the House Standing Infrastructure and Communications and the Senate Environment and Communications Legislation Committee.

The Parliament of Australia summarized Public Interest Media Advocate Bill 2013 as, “Part of a package of six bills in relation to the media sector, the bill: creates the independent statutory office of the Public Interest Media Advocate (PIMA); provides for the functions, appointment, and terms and conditions of PIMA; and requires an annual report to be prepared on PIMA’s activities and other specified matters.” Other bills in the package delineate what PIMA’s role would be. Broadcasting Legislation Amendment (Convergence Review and Other Measures) Bill 2013 and Television Licence Fees Amendment Bill 2013 both had their second reading on Tuesday in the House and were the only bills to pass both houses of parliament. Unlike the other bills in the package which have not had a third reading before being shelved, the former bill deals primarily with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Special Broadcasting Service, while the latter bill increased licensing fees for television stations.

On Monday, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) released a statement saying such government oversight is not required. Other Australian media organizations have protested the proposed legislation. Australia’s The Daily Telegraph is quoted by the Brisbane Times describing this legislation as an “aggressive attempt to silence your media.”

Speaking before a Senate committee about media reform, AAP chief Bruce Davidson said, “We simply do not believe that there is a problem with the conduct of the media in Australia, and certainly not that of AAP, that warrants further oversight by a minster-appointed body […] Any hidden perception, I believe, of government interference is simply a dangerous precedent that may lead to control, may lead to interference […] The aims may be noble, Mr Chairman, but the potential for potential misuse and changes of that legislation as presented to us, I think, is a dangerous thing to contemplate.”

Former federal court judge Ray Finkelstein oversaw an inquiry into the Australian print media in 2011. He told a government inquiry, “There are no powerful groups in society that can come along to governments or anybody and say ‘we can do what we like when we like and there’s nothing you should do about it’.” Finkelstein is also on the record as stating that self regulation by the industry through their own organization has failed.

Where and when to get a Brazilian bikini wax

Unlike other types of bikini waxing, a Brazilian bikini wax needs to done at a professional salon. Finding one through word of mouth is best. Ask your friends about their own experiences of bikini waxing: a good technician will be quick and efficient. The best time to for bikini waxing is when you are able to wear loose fitting clothes afterwards. Don’t get it done just before a beach holiday, when you’ll be wearing a thong. Allow 24 hours for any swelling or tenderness to go away.

The treatment

First, pubic hair will be trimmed short or you may be asked to do this yourself before you arrive. The actual bikini waxing begins with the technician applying warm wax to the pubic hair using a wooden stick. Cloth strips are then placed over the wax. When the wax is hardened the strips are pulled away from the skin, removing pubic hair. This will probably hurt. How much varies but the whole thing should be over within around 15 to 30 minutes. It’s a good idea to try to relax during the bikini waxing. Skin will then be relaxed and flat, allowing the wax to get deep into the hair follicles.

Full Brazilian bikini wax

If you’ve opted for a full Brazilian bikini wax, all hair will be removed. Otherwise, a small strip will be left. Make sure you tell the technician exactly what you want as not every salon uses the same definitions.


When it’s over, go home and put on loose fitting clothes and underwear. The salon should give you some soothing lotion to take home with you and you can also apply Calamine lotion or aloe vera to help with any itching. If you wish, you can also apply a hair inhibitor to try to lessen hair re-growth. A Brazilian bikini wax should last from four to six weeks.

British-born Muslim hair stylist Bushra Noah is currently undertaking legal action against the owner of a hair salon for alleged religious discrimination. Noah is suing London hair salon owner Sarah Desroiser. Desroiser who runs a salon in King’s Cross, has said that she would not accept Noah as a stylist if Noah’s hair was covered. Noah, like many devout Muslims keeps her hair covered in public places, believing it to be immodest otherwise.

Noah claims that her headscarf is a fundamental part of her religious beliefs and that wearing the scarf would not interfere in her carrying out the job at all. Desrosiers said that it is not discrimination but rather that “the essence of my line of work is the display of hair. To me, it’s absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist’s hair. It has nothing to do with religion. It is just unfortunate that for her covering her hair symbolises religion.” Desosiers added that she had worked with Muslims in the past and employs a Muslim accountant.

Noah claims that the state of her own hair is irrelevant to her ability to style others hair.

The last few years have seen a string of similar cases in Britain. Last year, there was a case over whether a British Airways employee could wear a prominent cross, and another case in which a teacher argued that she had a right to wear a Jilb?b (a traditional Islamic dress that covers almost the entire body) in the classroom. In that case, the teacher lost in the High Court.

As you may be already know, it is very important to look for the right Heathrow Airport parking facility to leave your car with when you skip town for a day or two. Of course, it is very unwise to just leave your cars where criminals can easily vandalize or burglarize one of your most expensive possessions. However, upon checking where to park your car, you find out that there are many parking operators in the area and choosing which one to pick becomes instantly confusing.

Well, there are many things to consider when looking for the right car parking operator. When trying to pick which car parking operator to choose, below are some of the basic things you should think about.

YouTube Preview Image

Accessibility One of the most important things to consider when looking for the right parking facility to leave your cars with is the facility s accessibility to Heathrow Airport. There are many car parking operators with car parking facilities that are located within minutes of Heathrow s terminal buildings. Some even have buses that will shuttle passengers to their respective terminals buildings, providing a necessary add-on to the service they provide that makes it very convenient to their customers. That means that you don t have to drag your luggage all the way to the airport from the car parking facility an inconvenience you d rather not deal with.

Affordability Of course, you should not ignore price and affordability when looking for parking facilities located within the vicinity of Heathrow Airport. Fortunately, most car parking operators offer customers deals that make the services more affordable. For instance, there are parking operators that offer cheaper deals when you book multiple parking spaces or when you book in advance. Aside from that, some car parking facilities allow you to save considerable amounts of money when you book through the Internet. So whether planning for business trips or for that much needed vacation, booking your car parking space in advance is something you should think about too, so that you can save substantially.

Security In my opinion, more than affordability and accessibility, giving your car topnotch protection is of utmost importance and should be your number one priority when choosing your car parking operator. It is almost pointless to choose an affordable car parking operator if they are unable to guarantee your car the security you require. In fact, by leaving your car in the care of car parking operators without strict security measures in place, you will be risking spending more money to pay for damages that may accidentally happen to your vehicles.

Our cars are valuable assets that we should always take care of. Not only are they very useful and helpful in making our lives more comfortable, they are also very expensive to buy and maintain. Needless to say, the car parking operator you choose should give you the protection your car needs. Aside from that, you should also consider affordability and accessibility to the terminals when deciding which car parking facility to choose. By taking all these things into consideration, finding the right Heathrow Airport parking facility will be as easy as A-B-C.

An 11-year-old boy has died after being shot in the car park of the Fir Tree pub in the Croxteth area of Liverpool, shortly after 1930 BST. An eyewitness, who had been drinking outside the pub at the time, said the boy was one of three playing football in the car park when a teenager, believed to be male, on a BMX bicycle fired three shots at the group from approximately 30 metres away, one hitting the victim in the neck. The other shots missed the boys, one hitting a car. The boy’s mother was called to the scene as people came out of the pub to help him. Other witnesses have suggested the incident may be gang-related.

A spokesman for North West Ambulance Service said: “We treated an 11-year-old with serious gunshot wounds.” He added the boy was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, but police later confirmed he had died. Officers have sealed off the scene, including a neighbouring street of shops. There have currently been no arrests in connection with the shooting.

In an appeal to the local community to help catch the killer, Merseyside Police Assistant Chief Constable Simon Byrne said: “Someone out there knows who put the gun in his hand and I want your help to get the community to turn that gunman in tonight. This is quite an awful crime, quite senseless, and the community holds the clue to solving this crime quickly. You can only imagine the heartache of the family that’s been ripped apart.”

Local councillor Rose Bailey, who lives nearby, also appealed for people with information to come forward, saying: “It sends shockwaves through the community of Croxteth and really it must be devastating. To think your young son is out playing football and then to get a call to say he’s been shot, I really don’t know as a parent how you would handle that.”

The area around the pub was made a “designated area” by police last year, meaning officers could disperse groups and move people away from the area.

The incident is another in a growing list of shootings of minors, many gang-related, in the UK’s major cities in 2007.

Witnesses heard gunshots in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Cedar Park, Texas, near Highway 183, on Sunday morning. Police arrested eighteen year-old Soloman Onwukaife at the scene. Four, including the gunman who had facial wounds unrelated to the shooting, are being treated for injuries after the incident. A fifth victim has been released.

Cedar Park Police Captain Mike Harmon said authorities arrived at the parking lot around 4:30 AM local time. There they arrested Onwukaife, who has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The Cedar Park Wal-Mart was closed down briefly on Sunday morning; however, no staff or customers were injured.

Police have released the names of the victims, eighteen-year-old Cody McGrath, nineteen-year-old Shayne Davis, nineteen-year-old Zacharia Gietl and 22-year-old Leland McGlocklin. As-of Monday, Gietl has been released from hospital whilst the others remain in critical, but stable, condition. Police informed media the incident occurred follwing a dispute which began at a nearby party where alcohol was being served. After moving the fight to the parking lot, Onwukaife is alleged to have shot the four victims.

Onwukaife was expected to be released on Monday, after which he would immediately be jailed. Police advised media the investigation is on-going and more charges may still be filed. Specifically, Police are trying to determine if any other participants in the fight were armed.

Wedding Gowns: The Anatomy

By Hugh Parker

Your wedding gown is perhaps the most important item you’ll purchase during your planning. But choosing the right dress involves much more than just deciding between white and ivory. So we’ve come up with a glossary of terms that will help you pick the perfect design.

The Fabric

The material of your wedding dress can determine the overall look and feel you want to achieve.

Satin: This material creates a glossy, silk-like look.

Crepe: Gives a wrinkled and worn appearance.

Brocade: This loom-made material can add a curtain, crochet, or lace look to the dress.

Organza: A thin, sheath-like fabric which flows easily.

Shantung: Made from intricate weaving, this material can add a ribbed look to your gown.

The Neckline

YouTube Preview Image

This will determine how your wedding dress fits and sits near the neck and bust area.

Halter: This dress features a strap on either shoulder which meets in the back at the nape of the neck.

Off-the-Shoulder: This neckline surrounds the bust, wrapping around the outer arm just below the shoulder.

Bateau: The fabric of the dress connects from the edge of one shoulder to the edge of the other, giving it a boat neck appearance.

Sweetheart: A strapless dress whose bust is cut to form a heart shape in front.

Strapless: As the name implies, no straps are featured on this dress. Rather, the material wraps under the arms.

The Silhouette

This term describes the shape and form of the dress. There are several styles to choose from. To see which style best suites your body type, read our article entitled “The Best Gown for Your Body”.

A-Line: A slim-fitting wedding dress with vertical seams that present a triangular form (similar to the letter A) when worn.

Ball Gown: The upper half of the dress, or bodice, is form-fitting, while the lower half of the dress, or waist, billows to a full skirt.

Empire: Only the bust area of this dress is snug. The remainder of the gown begins to flow slowly outward as it reaches the bottom.

Mermaid: This dress is taut against the body until the material reaches the knee, then the dress flares until it hits the floor.

Dropped: The dress is tight against the bust and bodice, and then drops just below the waistline for a low-rise look before extending out.


These add-ons enhance the elegance of the dress, taking it from simple to stylish in a few quick stitches.

Beading: Glass, gems, or crystals used to catch light and add shine and shimmer.

Appliqus: Fabric cut-outs sewn on to add depth and texture.

Sequins: Small, shiny circles that add glitter and glimmer to the gown.

Ribbons: Large or small, these carefully placed bows add a bit of extra beauty.

Edging: A bordered trim made of fringe, lace, embroidery, or beading.


When the ceremony has ended, the party’s just begun! Bustling allows you move more freely by tucking away your train without taking away from the beauty of the dress.

Bustle: A wedding dress whose train is pulled upward and fastened to the back of the dress using buttons or hooks.

French Bustle: A wedding dress whose train is secured underneath the gown and cannot be seen from the outside.
