High precision scales can weigh in milligrams with a maximum capacity (depending on the scale) of 2kg to 15 kg and they have a resolution between 0.01 and 0.5 g.

Electronic high precision scales are used for any kind of product and materials. They are used mainly with those ingredients whose weight is low.

The advantages of a high precision scale when compared to mechanical scales are: high precision, high response time or weighting speed and the automatic calibration.
