Avery Weigh-Tronix set a new Guinness World Record for the most people weighed on a scale at the same time. A total of 130 people took part in the record by standing on one of the company’s Bridgemont weighbridges at the Recycling and Waste Management show at the NEC in England. The 130 people weighed in at 10,600kg.
Independent adjudicators declared that Avery Weigh-Tronix had met all of the criteria for the record. The accuracy of the mass weigh in was verified before the attempt with each individual having his or her weight checked before being counted onto the weighbridge.
The Bridgemont weighbridge used measured 7.5m x 3.35m, uses an E1205 indicator for control and an XR remote display showed the total weight. This is a common weighing solution for the waste and recycling industry.
