Snow Scale

Neostrain

 

In 2010/11, Reuben Heaton worked with Polish based measurements specialist Neostrain to develop an analogue based scales solution to enable householder to monitor snow weight on the roofs of houses.

 

Maintenance of snow levels on roofing in Poland has implications for the householder in terms of safety, structural damage and maintenance costs as well as insurance. The Snowscale product enables householders to weigh and accurately determine the weight of snow on a roof allowing them to take appropriate action and save cost.

Miniaturised Depth Gauge

Pierre Kunz

 

One of the more exotic projects undertaken by Reuben Heaton was the development of a miniaturised depth gauge attachment for monitoring depth during diving expeditions.

 

Measuring only 33mm in length, the depth gauge design was based on a simple compressed air bubble system combined with graduated glass tube.

 

Working to the smallest of tolerances, the purpose built glass tubing was printed using state of the art ceramic detailing processes. Each gauge was individually pressure tested in a purpose built pressure chamber designed and built on site, to achieve a maximum dive depth of over 80 meters. OAs with all Pierre Kunz creations, only 500 of the custom G021 Sport Diver watches were made.

Reuben Heaton British King's Ginger Manufacturer Weighing Scales Bespoke Project Build

King’s Ginger Scale

Berry Brothers for Buckingham Palace

 

Famed drinks company Berry Brothers & Rudd asked Reuben Heaton to develop a bespoke measuring device, to determine the content of liquid in an opaque glass container. King’s Ginger liqueur – created in 1903 for King Edward VII as a winter warmer – comes in a black bottle making it hard to tell the contents. The solution was to manufacture a bespoke balance based on a 17th century goods weighing scale, but adapted to suit the bottle dimensions. Using bespoke bottle-style counter balances it is possible to monitor the reduction in contents by substituting counter weights to match the main bottle weight.

 

Three sets of scales were manufactured. One set is on show at Berry Brothers, a second takes pride of place in Buckingham Palace for use by HM The Queen and the third lives at the Reuben Heaton factory.

Total Weighing Solutions

The Total Weighing Solutions (TWS) project launched by Reuben Heaton in October 2015 is designed to support the various development projects being undertaken by the company. TWS encompasses both development of future scales and weighing accessories, working with customers and third party organisations, consultants, agents and fieldworkers to develop future-proof weighing products for a diverse range of industries and applications. From mass production to bespoke one-off pieces of weighing equipment tailored to suit individual requirements the TWS process ensures a purpose built product with form and function maximised.

“Every year we see new industry applications that require specialist weighing and measuring products. In some cases, the products required are similar too but not the same as the traditional products for others it’s a totally new product. “Accurate recording of data is easy when working with inanimate objects, there’s no movement, no water and not much in the way of external factors to affect your results. In outdoor environments this is much more of a challenge and this is where TWS comes in to play with products specifically designed to cope with adverse environment and minimise external factors that can cause error”.
