About Fulcrum Inc.
Fulcrum Inc. was established in 2000 when it acquired Torbal™, and the Torsion Balance prescription line. Torbal™ dates back to the 1800’s when it became famous for its superior weighing mechanisms, which were based on the Torsion design.
During the 20th Century, Torbal EA-1 Analytical Scales, and DRX Prescription models became the balances of choice for laboratories, schools, and pharmacies throughout the United States. In 2003 Fulcrum Inc. developed an excusive alliance with one of the largest precision scale manufacturers in Poland, and reintroduced the TORBAL brand with high quality precision scales and analytical balances. By 2006 Fulcrum Inc. received Weights and Measures NTEP certifications for five precision class II models.
Today, the TORBAL success continues with some of the most advanced precision, laboratory, and analytical scales available on the market. Our line has recently expended to include moisture analyzers, force gauges, and industrial scales.
