Shift test or sectional test:
We place load on different places on the scale to ensure it falls within a certain tolerance.
We put the same load on and test multiple times to see if the results changes. If change occurs, it must be within tolerance.
We place load on the scale to see if it’s exact. Then, we apply a certified calibrated load on the scale and make sure it matches. Different weights are used to ensure uniformity through different load sizes.
