With over 250 years of history, Avery Weigh-Tronix designs, manufactures, markets and services a broad range of high quality weighing products and systems which can be found in virtually every industrial environment worldwide.

Avery Weigh-Tronix is a technology developer and manufacturer of weighing products and systems for customers with demanding and changing needs. We entered the marketplace in time to help guide the weighing industry from mechanical to electronic technology with the introduction of the Weigh Bar® weight sensor.

Weighing systems designed with agriculture’s unique requirements in mind

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.

Every day, agricultural producers harvest benefits from our legendary, reliable scale performance. Whether the application is indoors or outdoors, stationary or mobile, our products have stood the test of time on thousands of farms worldwide and are ready to handle any agricultural environment.

Combine our years of agricultural experience with a wide range of indicators, remote displays, software and accessories available for a complete weighing system.

Avery Weigh-Tronix is the obvious choice for superior weighing performance for your operation.
