weighing scales v balances

Though people often assume “scale” and “balance” mean the same thing, the differences between the two types may impact your choice of purchase.

A weighing scale is a type of device that determines weight by measuring deflection. Mechanical scales, which don’t require electricity, operate using springs that stretch when weight is applied.
The radial dial displays the amount of force required to stretch the spring, which has been translated into kilograms. For professional purposes, digital scales with load cells have transformed the market. Load cells are transducers that can convert the force, or weight, of an item exerted onto it into a measurable electrical output.

Balances have been around a lot longer than scales – a few thousand years longer.
Instead of measuring deflection, balances require the application of known weight to determine your unknown weight.
For professional purposes, digital balances are used the most often. With digital balances, the process of creating a force equal to your item is all internal, using a force restoration mechanism.
