BW-K and BX-K Series Platform Balances
Precision Platform Balances for High-Capacity Weighing


BW-K BX-K Series Platform Balance

The BW-K and BX-K Series of platform balances, with maximum capacities of 12 kg to 52 kg, are ideal for weighing large samples and objects.

Incorporating Shimadzu’s stable and reliable UniBloc weighing technology, the difference between the BW-K and BX-K models are a built-in calibration in the BW-K models for added piece-of-mind.


BW-K and BX-K Series models:

  • BW-KH platform balances, maximum weight range 12 kg to 32 kg

  • BW-KS platform balances, maximum weight range 32 kg to 52 kg

  • BX-KH platform balances, maximum weight range 12 kg to 32 kg

  • BX-KS platform balances, maximum weight range 32 kg to 52 kg

High-Precision, Large-Capacity Balances

BW-K and BX-K Series balances are designed specifically for weighing large amounts of samples and large objects. Even though these balances have high maximum weighing capacities, precise measurement is maintained.

Reliable, Stable UniBloc Weighing Technology

Shimadzu’s UniBloc weighing technology is a high-precision one-piece force cell, created by electric discharge wire processing applied to an aluminum alloy block. UniBloc’s compact, uniform structure ensures stable temperature characteristics, an excellent response time, and an even corner-load performance.

Built-in Calibration Weight for BW-K models

Included in BW-K models is a simple lever-operated calibration weight. This large calibration weight is as reliable as external calibration and is applied when needed.

Additional Application Functions

The BW-K and BX-K Series feature a wide range of additional application functions, including a built-in clock, a GLP, GMP and ISO compatible calibration report, an analog bar graphic display, a specific gravity measurement mode, an animal measurement mode, and a formulation mode. To undertake specific gravity and animal measurements, additional accessories are required.
