The John Maguire and Son MAG Range offer a robust and reliable solution to many industrial weighing applications.

Originally designed for Non-Ferrous scrap metal processing, these scales have developed into high reliance weighing machine, operating at the focal point of many industries and businesses. Whether providing point of Trade for high value non-ferrous metals to weighing and collating finished goods for distribution these scales can meet with any demanding application.


The combination of high strength decks with the protective mounting frame and high accuracy large beam load cells results in a scale that will last the expected 10 years service life.


From a simple floor scale to a frame mounted software integrated scale point of purchase system we can meet your requirements.

  • Constructed of heavy duty box section steel, fully welded, to give superior strength.


  • 8mm Durbar plate heavily stitch welded underneath to give a long lasting, hard wearing platform.
