Axle scales are known to be economical industry-reliable solutions for accurate truck and load weighing. However because heavy-duty haul trucks that are loaded with extreme weights are more difficult to load, offload, and move to-and-from weigh stations, operators are utilizing a more advanced and efficiency-driven axle scale system.
This is where on-board axle scales come in to play. These custom-integrated on-board axle scales are installed directly on the truck, allowing for the process of truck weighing to be a shorter and less complicated (without the need of visiting a weigh station. In terms of quality, on-board truck scales are customizable and their quality is uncompromised.

Various Axle Scale Capacities & Configurations
As an alternative to overloading, there are options for various sizes and capacities of axles. This allows different truck weights to be measured according to their weight and with a compatible axle scale. Various axles with a variety of capacities, lengths, and configurations are designed to weigh multi axle or single axle vehicles.
However, unlike the portable axle scales, the on-board weighing systems include a digital display readout which provides weight data and other metrics for easy payload operation.
With overloading systems in place, Walz truck scales avert the possibility of breakage of the axle scale from an overweight truck. Also available as a feature on On-Board axle scales is the ramp feature. These are especially useful when it comes to the loading and unloading of the truck. Ramps allow the vehicle to move smoothly through the scale. However, when not needed, these ramps are detachable from the main axle body.

The axle scales from Walz Scale are specifically designed to deliver convenience and efficiency in performance due to their low profile designs and high level accuracy. The axle scale systems are also portable in terms of designs which is key in allowing compatibility with various locations. Especially in situations where a permanent scale is not feasible, the portable design serves an important function of allowing the task to still be done in an efficient manner.
Complementary to the hardware system of the axle scale is the software component of the weight terminal. This terminal is designed to be a main control center for the axle scale. With necessary functional LCD display, printer, and rechargeable batteries, the portability of the weight terminal allows it for the control center manager to efficiently track data collected from vehicle weighing and displays the information on a simple interface.
There is a range of different axles available from Walz to suit a number of needs for axle scales. From heavy duty scales, in motion scales, static scales, and more, you are sure to find your axle scale needs.
