Speech About Big Data Scales at 2016 Asian Expo by Edward Pan – Inventor of Big Data Scales

What is Big Data Scale? What can it do for your business?
There are lots of useful data generated along with your business operation. These data are usually wasted if they are not recorded. If you record the data and save them you can use them to improve your business and make important decisions.

For example, we have installed a scale for a customer in quality control.  They use the scale to check if the boxes contain everything part the customers have ordered.  Further more we added an automatic recording function to the system so it can record the date, time, batch #, line #, weight, under, pass or over etc automatically.  With such information the customer is able to track where the operation errors are from so he can take actions to improve.

Big Data to business is DNA to human. Knowing your Big Data and improving your business can make you much more competitive than your competitors.
This floor with Big Data function can record every load you put on the scale. We can also customize the way you like to record with very low fee.

The inventor of Big Data Scale Edward Pan illustrated the importance of big data for your business:

How Do Smart Scales Save Time and Money for Your Business?

Weighing equipment has been servicing companies for more than 100 years. The weight data scales collect is processed by MCU (micro controlling units) into useful information to save time in the work flow. For example: a counting scale can count items by calculating the net weight and the sample weight. Prime Scales is pushing scale functions to a new level. The data can be processed more efficiently and the useful information can be connected with your smart devices such as cell phones, tablets and computers. We call them “Smart Scales”.

Compared to the All-In-One MCU devices, Smart Scales are more versatile and affordable because we are using the most advanced technology (up-to-date computer technology) to process the weight data. Thanks to the mass production of computers, tablets, smart phones etc., these processors are very inexpensive to acquire – and most of the time – you already have them. Here are some case studies showing how our Smart Scale systems saved time and money for our clients:

Case Study #1 – Super Count / Smart Count Scale

SuperCountBanner

As mentioned above, a traditional counting scale needs to be sampled every time after changing to a different item to count. Super Count Scale can download the sample information along with the product ID, container weight (if any) through the network. The user will just scan the RFID tag on the product container, the system will pull out this product information and calculate the count instantly.

Case Study #2 – In-line Scale built-into Conveyor System

Conveyer Scale

Your productivity is our business. You can turn up the speed of your conveyer system for efficiency. And we make sure our scales will keep up. Accuracy can never be compromised for speed. We have a way to achieve both.

Case Study #3 – Real-time Inventory Monitoring System

Rack Scale

Every business, more or less, has inventory control problems. Physical inventory count on a regular base is the most popular solution. Using this real-time inventory monitoring system / Rack scale, customers can see the inventory and inventory change right away and the system will save a log on the server. So the physical inventory count becomes unnecessary. And business management can pull out the log at any time.

Case Study #4 – Full-channel Remote Control Floor Scales

RemoteControlScale

Floor scales can let you fully control the shipping weights / shipping charges. And during the operation, pressing buttons on the indicator is inevitable (such as turning on, zero, tare, print, count etc.) When a forklift driver places a pallet on a scale, he will have to come down and walk to the indicator to press the buttons. Or he will have to ask his colleague to press the buttons for him. With our remote system, he can press the buttons right at his finger tip.

Case Study #5 – Palm Viewer Application

PalmViewer

We originally designed this system for truck scales and axle truck scales. Customers can view and add (subtract) weight data according to their needs on their smart phones or tablets. This application can be widely used in a lot of different business applications.

All the above projects are patent pending.

INSANELY SIMPLE – BUILD PRODUCTS FOR THE CUSTOMERS’ PRODUCTIVITY

 

How many times are you willing to push a button to start your car engine, to turn on your toaster, to micro-wave a bag of popcorn, or dial a number to call your best friend?  As few as possible – no one enjoys pressing buttons or reading the manuals.  People want their lives easy – just like you and me do.  If they have to spend money and time to use your products, they will get from your competitors, who can offer less time-consuming products – even at higher prices.

Look at the successful businesses around you: how many items are on In & Out’s menu?  How many buttons are on an IPad?  How many clicks do you need to make a purchase on Amazon?  They are leaving us less options so we don’t have to spend time weighing options.

This law applies to the industrial products as well.  All that matters in a business is productivity.  If we can save customers time, we can save their labor, then lower their expenses.  We can achieve this in three different ways:

  1. Integrate products.

Product integration can save the operation time for customers.  For example: Prime Scales wrapping machine with built-in scale can wrap the pallets and weigh them at the same time.  It can eliminate the loading operation to one for each pallet – compared to two loads in the traditional way.

  1. Remove (or lock up) unnecessary functions.

Unused functions will usually slow down the operation because when the operator is trying to reach their desired functions, they will usually have to go through all the other functions in the middle.  Most of Prime Scales indicators can lock up functions even weighing units to make the operation easy and fast.

  1. Use high technology devices for the complicated calculations.

A traditional scale usually comes with a full keypad or a simplified keypad.  The full keypad consists of 20-30 buttons.  And the simplified keys have to be shared for different functions.  So the scale is either bulky or confusing, or it is difficult to use.  Prime Scales’ Smart Scale series are using computer, tablet or even cell phone applications to do the complicated calculations.  All the buttons are dynamic.  When you go to the sub-menu, the keys will be changed to the sub-menu automatically. What’s more, the computer technology are by far more powerful than the MCU built-in the weight indicators.  By giving the work to advanced peripherals we can save lots of time and money thanks to the large scale production of the computer products.

Along the way we are conducting business, we always endeavor ourselves in making simpler but more powerful products.  We are doing this just for one goal: increase the productivity for our customers.
