ABOUT US

Our Story

Hardy Process Solutions began in 1918 as Hardy Scales. Since then we've designed, built, and installed virtually every type of scale imaginable. In 1984 Hardy Scales was purchased by Dynamic Instruments, Inc. and we changed our name to Hardy Instruments, Inc., and in 2011 to Hardy Process Solutions, as we redefined our business focus.

Your Partner in Weighing Since 1918

Since 1984 we've developed a full product line of weighing solutions for process & packaging. We have listened to our customers and focused the company's design efforts on solving the most difficult challenges in process control and industrial weighing:

  • With WAVERSAVER®, we eliminated the effects of vibration on scale readings
  • With Remote I/O, we were the first company to connect weighing instrumentation to Allen-Bradley PLCs without programming software drivers
  • C2® eliminated the need for test weights when calibrating and INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® allows system diagnostics and troubleshooting from the instrument
  • For further integration with Rockwell Allen Bradley PLCs, we were the first weighing company to develop add-on-profiles and faceplates
  • Our Hardy Dynamic Checkweigher Series is the first to offer in-motion checkweighing with open source programmability, off-the-shelf Rockwell components, and ease of integration into The Connected Enterprise

Our ADVANTAGE® line of Load Points and Load Sensors have elevated the standard load cell transducer to a new level making extra cost features standard and making their certs available online 24/7.
