Hobart Introduces New HTm Scale With Advanced Technology to Increase Revenue and Drive Efficiency

HTm Scale - Accurate. Reliable. SMART. New Offering in HT Series Lowers Total Overall Cost of Ownership

TROY, Ohio (January 19, 2021) –Hobart announced today that it is introducing a new scale as part of its HT Scale product offering.  The new HTm scale offers enhanced technology to increase revenue and drive operational efficiency.  With advanced built-in diagnostics and auto-level compensation, the Hobart HTm scale lowers the total overall cost of ownership.

“Retail scales are used every day at grocery counters, and it is imperative that these machines function properly and weigh accurately to minimize error and optimize the revenue stream,” said Hobart Product Line Manager of Weigh Wrap Sheila Campbell.  “There are many factors that can cause a scale to become out-of-level from accidental bumps to failure to adjust over time.  When a scale is out-of-level, it under weighs and is costing that retailer thousands of dollars in lost revenue.  With ValueMax auto-level compensation, retailers are assured that product is measured and priced correctly every time, optimizing revenue.  We are helping our customers benefit by fixing a problem many didn’t even know they had.  The HTm scale combines features and quality you expect from trusted Hobart products and its advanced technology increases revenue and decreases shrink.”

Designed and assembled in the United States, HTm scales weigh, automatically compute a price from stored PLU’s and print a label.  The new HTm scales provide an industry benchmark for accuracy and reliability with advanced features like ValueMax and an on-demand dual-core processor.  These technologies increase efficiency and revenue and reduce energy consumption.  Additionally, HT Scales are NSF certified, meeting strict sanitization standards for quick and easy cleaning.  The HTm Scale incorporates many key features designed to keep operations running smoothly:

  • ValueMax Technology – Auto-Level compensation
  • CodeChecker – Printhead health diagnostic 
  • AC Wireless Connectivity – More reliable network connections
  • On-Demand Processor – Reduced energy consumption
  • Ease-of-Use – User-friendly, customizable interface
