Weigh Bar History

In the 1960s, New Jersey engineer Dick Bradley invented the Weigh Bar®, an all-electronic strain gauge weight sensor designed to deliver precise, repeatable readings, with a weatherproof and shockproof design which allowed it to withstand environmental challenges. Our Weigh Bars provided the durable accurate solution producers needed to operate their grinder/mixers more efficiently.

In 1971 Weigh-Tronix (now Avery Weigh-Tronix) began selling the scale system itself directly to farm equipment manufacturers. Since then, the company has stayed true to its roots, working closely with partners in the agricultural industry and drawing on research and development from around the globe to ensure that we consistently meet our customers' needs with reliable yet cost effective solutions.
