Vehicle Weighing Scales

Weighing vehicles and semi-trucks in the logistics arena is very common, and is done by axle weighing, weighing vehicles, truck scales, and weighbridges. However, this isn’t such an easy task. Many times these are huge vehicles that require a scale that can handle these types of loads. It also has to have a low profile so that the vehicle can get up onto it easily. There are various ways to do this, which we have outlined below.

Weighbridge Truck Scales

There are scales that most semi operators are very familiar with called Weighbridge truck scales. These scales are usually in a fixed area, and the trucks are driven up onto them. The advantage of weighbridge scales is that many trucks can be weighed in a very short period of time. The scales are installed so that a truck can quickly drive up onto the scale, be weighed, and drive off.

Portable Scales

Portable scales are used to ensure that the vehicle is within legal limits for what it is hauling. There are many rules on the roads, and having portable truck scales can give the driver peace of mind that they will not face heavy fines. These scales are used to measure a vehicle at the axel. The user interface is straightforward and clear to what the weight is. These are made from special aluminium to ensure that they are, in fact, portable.

Portable scales are designed to be used in even the harshest working conditions. An integrated printer on board helps with track and tracing and can print off the axel’s weight, the vehicle’s identification code, real-time, and the total weight of the vehicle. This data can assist with traceability and registration.

Vehicle Axle Scales

Vehicle axle scales assist in weighing all different types of vehicles. They have overload protection, are easy to move around, and are also  easy to read and use when out in the field. They can also be mounted for a permanent scale as well. We offer these types of weighing scales in a couple of options. We offer portable Axle weighing pads that can be used out in the field, as well as RWS Axle Weighing Scales installed as a permanent fixture that comes with a low profile and is easy to drive up onto. The WWSK is another mobile option.

Floor Scales

Floor scales are the same as some vehicle axle scales and weighbridge scales. However, floor scales are not typically used in a portable fashion; they are usually positioned where there is inventory moving in and out. This ensures the correct amount is loaded into the vehicle. Our tractor-trailer weighing system is an excellent example of floor scales, used to help farmers weigh their harvest as they work their fields.
