Portable Truck Scale

Portable Truck Scale (wheel and axle weighing systems) are particularly useful in industries such as transportation, logistics, and agriculture where there’s a need to accurately determine vehicle weights quickly and conveniently, especially in locations where fixed weighing infrastructure may not be available or feasible.

Portable Truck Scale typically consist of durable weighing pads or scales that can be easily placed on the ground, allowing vehicles to drive over them for weighing purposes. The pads contain load cells or sensors that measure the weight applied to them by the wheels or axles of the vehicle. The weight measurements are then displayed on a handheld indicator or transmitted wirelessly to a central computer or display unit for monitoring and recording.

  5. Data Management: Some systems may offer features for data logging, storing weight measurements, and generating reports for further analysis and record-keeping.

  6. Compatibility: These systems may be compatible with various types of vehicles, including trucks, trailers, buses, and agricultural machinery.

Wheel Weighing: The same number of platforms will be required as the number of wheels on the vehicle. Approved version with wheel and static weighing available. Max reading channels: 4 / Max platforms.

Axle Weighing: Two platforms will be required per axle, the sum of which will allow the weight of the vehicle to be obtained. Axle weighing can be manual or automatic (in a static or dynamic system)

Memory: 1000 weighings can be stored in memory. 4 free and editable codes with 400 records each.

Metrological Spesification: Max. 10,000e or multirange / multiinterval 2 x 10,000e @ 0.3 µV/e in the CE-M approved version for legal use. Max. 1,000,000 divisions viewable for internal factory use, with internal resolution up to 2,000,000 points.

Using a wheel pad weighing system offers numerous benefits, including portability, accuracy, convenience, and cost-effectiveness, making it an ideal solution for various industries and applications requiring on-site vehicle weighing.

Portable truck scales serve a crucial function in various industries where accurate weighing of vehicles and cargo is essential. Here are some of the primary functions of portable truck scales:

  1. Weighing Trucks and Cargo: The primary function of portable truck scales is to accurately measure the weight of trucks and their cargo. This information is vital for various purposes such as ensuring compliance with legal weight limits, calculating transportation costs, and optimizing load distribution.

  2. Compliance and Regulation: Portable truck scales help businesses comply with regulatory requirements regarding vehicle weight limits, particularly for commercial trucks operating on public roads. By ensuring that trucks do not exceed legal weight limits, portable scales contribute to road safety and infrastructure preservation.

  3. Efficient Operations: By providing the ability to weigh trucks on-site and on-demand, portable truck scales contribute to operational efficiency. Instead of relying on fixed weigh stations or off-site scales, companies can weigh vehicles quickly and accurately at the point of loading or unloading, minimizing downtime and optimizing logistics.

  4. Inventory Management: In industries such as mining, agriculture, and waste management, where bulk materials are transported by trucks, portable scales help manage inventory by accurately measuring the weight of incoming and outgoing materials. This data is essential for inventory tracking, production planning, and cost management.

  5. Revenue Protection: For businesses that charge customers based on the weight of transported goods, portable truck scales play a crucial role in revenue protection. By accurately measuring the weight of cargo, companies can ensure that they are billing customers correctly and avoiding revenue loss due to underreporting.

  6. Data Collection and Analysis: Many modern portable truck scales are equipped with data logging capabilities, allowing companies to collect and analyze weight data over time. This data can provide valuable insights into vehicle utilization, load efficiency, and operational performance, helping companies make informed decisions to optimize their operations.

  7. Flexibility and Mobility: One of the key advantages of portable truck scales is their ability to be deployed in various locations as needed. Whether it’s a construction site, a farm, a mine, or a temporary logistics hub, portable scales can be easily transported and set up to facilitate weighing operations wherever they are required.

  8. Environmental Monitoring: In industries where environmental regulations apply, portable truck scales may also play a role in monitoring and mitigating environmental impacts. By accurately measuring the weight of materials extracted or transported, companies can track their environmental footprint and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
