Application Note: Development of the BM Series of Analytic Balances
3 October 2018

A&D has been developing electronic balances since its inception 30 years ago. When the company was founded, it felt as if the company was always trying to catch up with industry leaders, who had over 100 years of experience. However, the company's establishment coincided with a period of advancements in the digitization of measurement devices. Furthermore, we seriously pursued cost performance by both drawing out basic performance and cutting costs. This increased profits in a comparatively smooth manner short time after the company was founded. As a result, our share of weighing instruments in Japan is over 60% based on units sold. However, the high-precision end of our lineup has only reached semi-micro analytical balances with a minimum display of 10 µg.
