Selecting Aircraft Scales
Intercomp aviation weighing systems are used to weigh aircraft ranging from light sport aircraft to the largest commercial and military aircraft in service today. Large organizations can operate and deploy both platform scales and top-of-jack weighing systems when there are various types of aircraft in the fleet based in multiple locations.
Selection of the best aircraft weight and balance equipment also includes evaluating the manufacturer and available support. Having manufactured aircraft scales for decades, Intercomp, an ISO 9001 certified company, incorporates a quality management system to deliver the highest quality products and support available. Crafted from aerospace grade aluminum, our aircraft scales and systems are manufactured and assembled at our facility in Minnesota, USA. The aircraft scales are tested and calibrated with NIST traceable load cells prior to delivery, providing documented accuracy in addition to required safety certifications for operation in aircraft hangars. This dedication to safety, quality, and usability is reflected in system components such as ramps, spacers, carts and cases, and the indicators and software available for each system.
When evaluating which method to weigh aircraft, platform scales and top-of-jack aircraft weighing systems each have capacities that encompass the range from UAV’s to Boeing 747s, with systems that can be customized to each customer’s requirements. Maintenance personnel may have experience that lends a preference to one or the other method for weighing, but Intercomp offers training for either way to weigh an aircraft.
