Avery Weigh-Tronix
Weigh Bars
Shear Beams
Design PurposeSpecifically designed for farm useUsually a more generalized design for a variety of industrial applications
AccuracyIndividual weigh bar .25% max error and system with multiple weigh bars 1% max errorVariable depending on suitability of application but of generally lower system accuracy than weigh-bar design
StrengthBased on inherently strong design with significant overload capacityRequires higher capacity due to their generally poor ability to withstand shock and side load
