Full Plate Weighbridge

A weighbridge is a form of truck scale used in the commercial industry to weigh the load and truck all in one. They are typically very robust as they are responsible for the weight of very large commercial trucks. Weighbridges go back to the early 1900s. However, they have come a long way since then. Today, weighbridges are digital and can keep track of all sorts of information. These large HGV (Heavy Good Vehicle) weighing systems are perfect for weighing trucks.  

Many times goods are sold by weight, and a weighbridge is used to find the weight of what is being shipped. This is done by calculating the total weight and subtracting the original weight of the truck and trailer. This calculation allows the operator to understand the weight of their load. This is one form of weighing trucks.

Large HGV Weighing

Overweight trucks are more at risk of accidents as they cannot stop as they were designed. If the weight isn’t distributed properly, the truck can get off-balance, causing other roadway issues. This will also add to the wear and tear of the truck, leading to other issues down the road. There are other reasons that we don’t want our commercial trucks to be overweight limits, including damage to roads and bridges. That’s why weighbridge and lorry scales are so important; HGV weighing systems ensure that the roads are protected on all levels from overloaded trucks.

Lorry Scales

There are two ways to weigh a lorry – with axle weight pads or weighbridges. However, the loads can also be weighed before they are loaded onto the truck with pallet weights. Each box or container could be weighed and then added to make up the weight of each pallet.

While there are many reasons to use a weighbridge or lorry scale, it’s important to find a system that is best suited for their intended purpose.

These scales used to be very primitive but today use advanced technology. Software is combined with these large HGV weighing systems to keep track of a range of information and data to help factories become more productive.
