Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is the first 30-ton scale brought to Korea to measure freight. It was used for freight measuring for a long time during the development of the modern steel industry. Electric scales are widely used in the current steel industry.

History of the Object
The 30-ton scale was brought to the Dongkuk Steel Dangsan factory in Seoul in 1966. It is the very first of its kind to be introduced to Korea. The scale was later taken to Dongnam S&C in the mid-1970s. It was donated to the Iron Museum on October 17, 2006.
