A lab dial type scale is a measuring device used to accurately measure the weight or force of an object with high precision. It consists of a platform or pan on which the object is placed, and a dial or indicator that displays the weight or force. The dial is calibrated in units of weight or force, typically in grams or Newtons, and displays the measurement using a pointer that moves along a circular scale.
Dial-type scales may use a variety of mechanisms to determine weight or force, such as mechanical springs, electronic sensors, or strain gauges. They are commonly used in laboratory settings for applications that require high accuracy and precision, such as chemical analysis, research and development, or quality control. Dial-type scales may also have additional features, such as tare functionality, which allows for the measurement of the net weight of a sample after subtracting the weight of the container.
