High Accuracy Sample Weighing from Outstanding Sensitivity

The BW32KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu provides accurate weighing of particulate matter or other tiny samples thanks to its 1000 mg division size. Robust and engineered for labs even for universities, industrial facilities, or production houses, the Shimadzu BW32KS brings out reliable and close measurement values, assuring high performance weighing for quality control requirements, manufacturing procedures, as well as everyday lab tasks. Need other precision balance options with a similar 1000 mg sensitivity? Opt for the BW52KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu. For a unit that returns higher readability, users can try the BW22KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu.

Highly Precise Measurements for Credible Sample Weighing

When it comes to getting results that can be replicated for your routinary weighing applications, you can rely on the BW32KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu that provides a repeatability of 60 mg Even with multi-users considered, the unit brings about close weighing measurement values throughout your entire weighing process for valid results, that is of course considering the same conditions are followed. If you require higher repeatability from the same manufacturer or another globally-trusted brand, you can go for the Pioneer PX3202/E Precision Scale from Ohaus

All-Around Weighing Performance At Any Place or Time

Prior to acquiring a lab scale, make sure you anticipate the sample load you will be weighing now as well as in the future. These should always be within a model's capacity range and won't spill over its weighing pan. Through the Shimadzu BW32KS, you can work on light or heavy materials whether solids or liquids, as long as these do not exceed its maximum capacity of 32000 g and its 345 mm weighing pan. As the scale features internal calibration, permitting quick recalibration anytime the unit is transferred from one area to another, weighing accuracy and precision will never be a problem. Studying hefty samples? The BW52KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu or the PUE 7.1.120.HRP High Resolution Scale from Radwag offers a higher capacity but with the same readability as the Shimadzu BW32KS. But if you need something similar to this BW-K unit but of a different model or from another well-respected brand, choose the BW32KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu instead

Fundamental Features to Consider for Hassle-free Weighing

Internal Calibration icon Internal Calibration

No need to worry weighing accuracy with this Shimadzu BW-K precision scale that lists an internal calibration feature. Even if the unit is moved from a space to another on a daily basis, the balance can self-recalibrate, considering changes in time, movement, stability, and temperature and then adapting as necessary.

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

Conforming to stringent measures when it comes to preventative maintenance, routine testing, calibration, and more, this laboratory scale confirms compliance to ISO print guidelines as well as standards.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Keeping tabs on activities carried out for your research or experiment is a breeze with this balance model from Shimadzu as it returns reports compliant to GLP. Following GLP criteria, reports printed include time, balance ID, date, and other relevant data, saving you extra time intended to have these formatted.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Generating reports compliant to GMP, the BW32KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu prints out reports with operator details, results, and weighing time included. This makes it a recommended top loading scale for quality control and testing on manufactured food, drugs, raw materials, and goods.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

The Shimadzu BW32KS top loading scale presents clear visibility of weighing values even if users are in badly lit areas. Having a durable, bright, and perfectly sized alphanumeric screen, this precision balance model displays vivid readout of data even considering multiple angles.

Unequivocal Operational Productivity

Have more time in your hands to work on other prio activities through the Shimadzu BW32KS as it produces weighing results in just 2.0 seconds. Not only that, the unit can also disseminate weighing data or results to devices remotely close to the unit in less than a minute since it features an RS-232 port. Additionally, reformatting reports will never consume your time anymore because the lab scale already observes the GMP, ISO, and GLP print format.

The patented UniBloc (OPF) sensor achieves high-performance, compact size, and durability at the same time. Shimadzu introduced this wire-cut block sensor to high-precision platform balances in 1989. Combination of low-profiled body and large pan is for operator comfort during bulk weighing.

WindowsDirect function

The balance communicates directly to a PC with Windows® applications. No additional software is needed to interface with spreadsheet, database, word processing, and laboratory software. WindowsDirect function works Windows® 95, 98, 2000, NT4.0, Me and XP. PC must be IBM PC/AT compatible. 

Superior durability

The simple structure and overload protection mechanism results in maximum durability.

Guaranteed sensitivity

Internal resolution is one digit finer level than display, so even minimum readout is highly reliable and stable.

Selectable weighing modes

Best measurement modes depending on the purpose and environment can be selected with ease.

Built-in calibration weight (BW-K Series only)

BW-K Series is equipped with built-in calibration weight. Operator is released from weight maintenance. A single lever operation is all that is needed to load the weight for calibration.

Analog display modes

Full range

Bar graph clearly indicates the total weight (including the tare) as a portion of the balance capacity.


Select a target weight and tolerance. The display clearly indicates when they are reached.


Set an upper and lower limit. The display continually indicates whether the sample is within the range "Go", over range "HI" or under range "LO." Choose one of the two bar graph display modes.(No signal output)
