Most Frequently Asked Questions:

Q) Are We SECA?
A) No, Precision Weighing Balances (PWB) is not SECA.  We are an Authorized Seca Dealer and this site is owned and operated by Precision Weighing Balances and not sponsored by Seca Corporation.  Seca's company web site is located at http://www.seca.com.  Precision Weighing Balances offers the full line of medical scales here.  Any warranty inquiries or similar questions must be directed to the manufacturer (see below).


Q)Who is SECA and how long have they been building scales?
A) Quintenz, a Strasbourg monk and clever mechanic, invented the decimal scale in 1821 and then shared his know-how with A.C.C. Joachims, a Hamburg (Germany) locksmith.  In 1840, Joachims founded the scale factory that gave rise to the SECA name.  Seca stressed "precision" from its inception.  In the first half of this century, Seca's precise mechanical scales, bearing the characteristic seca logo, became standard fixture in virtually all doctor's offices.  This trend was in line with medical science's growing interest in body weight as it relates to human health and development.

About thirty years ago, Seca entered the young electronic age.  Since then, electronics have considerably extended the Seca product range.  Seca views the doctor and his or her assistants as their partners, and Seca considers their products to be an answer to their requirements in the area of weighing and measuring.  That is how Seca came to develop the first weighing systems which document weight changes and trends, permit long-term measurements and provide digital weight readings.  Such systems can save lives - for example, lives of premature babies, burn victims and dialysis patients.  As Seca approach the next millennium, Seca motto is "user-friendly solutions", a reference to their close cooperation with doctors and scientists.  "Medical weighing and measuring" plays an important role in diagnoses and therapy, and Seca
plans to put the full potential of new technologies at the doctor's service.
