Model Design 

Precision lab balances with a readability of 1 mg (milligram balance) are usually equipped with a manual or automatic working three-door glass draft shield and a weighing pan size from Ø115 mm up to 140x140 mm. 

Balances with a readability of 10 mg up to 1 g, called precision or toploader balances, most are featured with a weighing pan without a draft shield. The weighing pan is made out of stainless steel and comes in a size is between Ø180 mm and 206x206 mm. 

Analytical Balance vs Precision Balance

An analytical balance is more accurate than a precision balance. An analytical balance comes with a readability of 0.1 mg or 0.0001 g, whereas a precision balance typically has readability of ≥1 mg or ≥0.001 g. So an analytical balance has at least a 10-times higher readability compared to a precision balance.
