Yamato Scale


We will keep contributing to society development and better living standard in everywhere around the world with our products created from our high-advanced “fixed-weight weighing” technology.
Our history as a specialized “Scale maker” starts from 1920 when Kawanishi Machine Works created a scale manufacturing section, which became the separate company Yamato in 1945.
Since then, as we will reach the 100th anniversary of establishment in 2020, we have been contributing to development of Japan by new weighing equipment and weighing system and worked on innovation for healthy and energy saving life.
Our company policy of “Reliability, Technology, and Creativity” always reminds us “Yamato for Technology” and we keep trying to improve customers’ convenience and life qualities through development of weighing technology.
We will challenge to create new concept of weighing, develop new products and advance further in the world so that our established “ fixed-weight weighing” technology can help better productivity and effectiveness at various industries and support better life quality in the whole world.
