At MWS we have a 10 Tonne force calibration rig designed to test and calibrate weighing pads using a reference load cell kit which is tested and certificated to ISO17025.
Due to the design and physical size of a weigh pad it is impossible to take them up to a high enough capacity using block weights (mass). It is only possible to safely load weigh pads to around 1 or 2T using 1000kg cast iron test weights, even then you cannot take the pads up to a reasonable load that the axle pads should be tested to.
MWS have invested in a purpose built test rig to enable us to safely load to 10,000kg and perform accurate calibrations to ISO9001 standards.
