Exceptional Sensitivity for High Accuracy Weighing

The UW820H Precision Scale from Shimadzu presents highly accurate weighing of tiny samples or particulate matter made possible by its 1 mg sensitivity. Durable and built for laboratories even for educational institutions, production houses, or industrial facilities, the Shimadzu UW820H yields close measurement values, securing high performance weighing for lab tasks, manufacturing purposes, as well as quality control processes. Looking for other lab scale options with a similar 1 mg sensitivity? Go for the UW620H Precision Scale from Shimadzu. For a model that presents higher readability, users can try the UW420S Precision Scale from Shimadzu.

Unquestionable Reproducibility for Effective Weighing

Obtain consistent values all throughout your weighing process to save more time analyzing results rather than re-transcribing these each and every time with the Shimadzu UW820H precision scale. Showcasing a repeatability of 1 mg, this Shimadzu precision balance delivers highly precise measurement values best for daily weighing applications, no matter how many users handle it and given that similar conditions are followed. Choose the PS 10100.3Y Precision Balance from Radwag instead if you are looking for one with a higher repeatability.

Multipurpose Sample Weighing from Laboratory to Field

Reviewing how much sample you'll be weighing in the future is one thing to think about right before procuring a balance. It is important to make sure that the model you are acquiring can cover for your anticipated sample load. With the UW820H Precision Scale from Shimadzu, you can accommodate up to a maximum of 820 g samples through its 108 mm weighing pan. Accuracy and precision is validated by the Shimadzu UW820H as it features external calbration, therefore it follows manual recalibration through approved test weights. Do you need a higher capacity model with the same 1 mg readability? You can go for the UW1020H Precision Scale from Shimadzu or the PS 1000.R1 Precision Balance from Radwag instead. However, if you just need a different model but with the same capacity as this precision scale, you can choose from the UW820S Precision Scale from Shimadzu instead.

Well-Designed with Key Features

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

Fulfill application requirements with this ISO-compliant lab scale, standing by its print guidelines, strict measures when it comes to preventative maintenance, routine testing, calibration, and more, and the highest quality risk-based management systems.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Your lab data credibility is fortified with this Shimadzu balance model because it renders reports compliant to GLP. Formatted to include not just balance ID, time, and date but also other relevant data to track, with no fuss activity history, this model is perfect for record keeping and quality purposes, non-clinical data submissions, as well as data traceability.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

Improved operational efficiency can be achieved with the Shimadzu UW820H precision balance as it is armed with a perfectly sized, bright, and durable Alphanumeric LCD. Since users are presented with clear weighing values, blunders concerning data readout are lowered wherever they are, even in badly lit workrooms.

Operational Excellence Defined

Get weighing results fast from the UW820H Precision Scale from Shimadzu that stabilizes and returns values within 1.5 seconds. With RS-232 and USB ports, this Shimadzu unit can transfer collected weighing records to devices remotely close to the unit. Moreover, no need to spend time in reformatting reports because this Shimadzu precision scale secures observance to ISO and GLP regulations so users can re-allocate precious time to tasks with higher prio.

The new line of Shimadzu top-loading balances are engineered with the innovative UniBloc mechanism which brings superior impact resistance unrivaled quick response, excellent stability and durability at the same time. Powerful features support any imaginable weighing application. UW Series comes with motor-driven built-in calibration weight and fully-automatic calibration functions.

UniBloc technology and benefits

The traditional core assembly of the electro-magnetic balance is replaced by a single part, the aluminum Shimadzu UniBloc. Digitally controlled wire-cut electric discharge processing makes it possible. This technology, which Shimadzu introduced in our EB-K precision platform balances as early as 1989, brings excellent benefits to the operator. Quick response, stability against temperature change, and outstanding durability. (Patented in USA in 1989, No.4799561, in China in 1991, No.12729, in Japan in 1995, No.1905686)


Built-in Clock GLP/GMP/ISO Conformance

Display during standby Built-In Clock Best for establishing administrative system to meet requirements of GLP/GMP/ISO9000. Calibration records can be provided with date and time

Analog display modes

Full range display mode

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.

LCD with backlight

LCD with backlight can be read with ease and comfort in any location without brightness adjustment.

Windows(R) Direct function

The balance communicates directly to a PC with WindowsTM applications. No additional software is needed to interface with spreadsheet, database, word processing, and laboratory software.

Windows(R) Direct function works Windows(R) 95, 98, 2000, NT4.0, Me and XP. PC must be IBM PC/AT compatible.

Unit conversion

Weight value is presented in 22 units and modes, including percentage, carat, specific gravity, lb, oz, and so on. Users can choose any combination of units depending on their needs. Piece counting function Piece counting function is installed as standard.
