Exceptional Sensitivity for High Accuracy Sample Weighing

Take the biggest value for your laboratory budget while not compromising weighing effectiveness through the BW52KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu. Built with a 1000 mg readability, the Shimadzu BW52KS prompts accurate sample weighing measurements whether working on manufacturing, industrial, or lab apps. Generating close weighing results, this top loading balance warrants straightforward weighing endorsed for routinary laboratory tasks, manufacturing procedures, quality control processes, and more. Finding other scale options with the same 1000 mg resolution? Opt for the BW32KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu. But, for higher resolution needs, you may want to try the BW12KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu instead.

Highly Precise Measurements for Dependable Sample Weighing

Ensure measurement values that can be reproduced throughout your weighing process to gain valid results and save more time for data analysis than re-recording data with the Shimadzu BW52KS scale. Complete with a 60 mg repeatability, this Shimadzu BW-K model yields high precision sample weighing for day-to-day applications even with multiple users considered. For a substitute with a higher repeatability, your options include the Explorer EX4202N Precision Scale from Ohaus, an equally trusted brand.

Ideal Weighing Solutions for Laboratory and Field

Cover 52000 g of materials through this Shimadzu unit assembled with a 345 mm pan. Whether working on field or in the lab or examining solids, liquids, and other sample types, this scale verifies weighing accuracy and precision through its internal calibration feature. No need to worry in case you transfer the unit from one area to another because it can self-calibrate accordingly as needed.Dealing with heavier samples? The PUE 7.1.120.HRP High Resolution Scale from Radwag offers a higher capacity but with the same readability as the Shimadzu BW52KS.

Well-Designed with Noteworthy Features

Internal Calibration icon Internal Calibration

The Shimadzu BW52KS recognizes the importance of weighing precision and accuracy. Coming with an internal calibration feat, this unit exhibits undefeated weighing performance even with changes in chemicals, solids, and other sample types taken into consideration -- quickly adapting as required.

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

The precision balance stands by ISO standards, following rigid measures when it comes to routine testing, calibration, preventative maintenance and more plus its print formats.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Print out GLP-compliant reports recommended for record keeping and quality purposes from this Shimadzu balance model. Already complete with balance ID, time, date, and other relevant data, these reports not just help trace task history but also to follow your research checkpoints.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Observing compliance to GMP protocols which include generating reports displaying operator details, results, and weighing time included, the BW52KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu can be used for quality management and testing, ideal for food and drug manufacturing, processing, and packaging industries.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

Whether working on field, in the lab, or even in spaces with poor lighting conditions, the Shimadzu BW52KS precision balance returns vivid weighing data even if you view values from different angles, ensuring not just user-convenience but also, most importantly, blunder-free readings.

Definitive Operational Excellence from A to Z

Raise laboratory productivity and polish-up laboratory procedures by getting faster results using the BW52KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu that equalizes and displays results within 2.0 seconds. This scale This unit might not come with USB port, but quick carry over of collected weighing results to various devices, computers, and printers since it has an RS-232 port. In addition to these features, users won't ever worry about compliance to ISO, GLP, and GMP standard requirements since this Shimadzu lab scale provides compliant reports. This saves time previously used up formatting these that can then be re-allocated to activities of higher priority.

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)
