The weighing devices are used in a lot of domains such as the domain of bakery and the domain of restaurants for weighing the ingredients, the domain of agriculture for weighing the grains, the domain of supermarkets for weighing the food and so on.
And the weighing services have an interesting history too. The need of people to use weighing services dates back before Christ. The first weighing device was used by the Egyptians in the fourth millennium BC. It was a balance with a very simple form which was used to determine the mass of gold dust that sometimes the sellers received in exchange for their goods. Although it is among the first models, the Egyptians’ balance has an accuracy of about 99%. The Egyptians were also the ones who introduced the concept of using weights to determine the mass of a product. This type of weighing the mass of things was then significantly improved by the Romans.
But nowadays, due to the evolution of technology and the digital age, the most used scales are the electronic ones. The only thing people have to do is to put on weight on the electronic scale and the device will show the amount of weight. But the electronic scales powered by a battery should be checked carefully before each use, as battery consumption leads to an incorrect display of weight.
There are, however, some scales for people that prove to be very smart devices. For example, these electronic devices do not show only the weight of a person, but they are able to calculate the body mass index (or the percentage of body fat), the muscle mass, the water content of the body and much more. These scales are a real help for those who want to keep fit and healthy. The experts say that often people appeal to these weighing devices due to the fact that obesity has reached alarming rates all over the world.
In United Arab Emirates, for example, the weighing services are usually used in constructions. Using the right amount of the building materials is a real must. The UAE is a country where dozens of constructions are built every year and the waste of materials could lead to the waste of money.
