Load Volume Scanner Provides Optimal Payload Management Solution

load volume scanner unitThe load volume scanner system was developed as an affordable alternative to the more common industry standard of heavy-duty truck scales. Apart from offering a more efficient and cost-effective solution to calculate load volumes in an accurate manner, the load volume scanner system has also introduced new ways to assess and optimized load management processes to further maximize efficiency and throughput. As a result, various companies in many different industries such as farming and agriculture, mining, waste management, and construction are leveraging today’s load volume scanners to advance their operations to the next level.

Using Volume to Determine Payload Weight While Mitigating Variables

In the above mentioned industries, the accuracy needed in payload weighing system are usually quite demanding because small discrepancies can translate into major losses over time. While weight is general measurement to determine a payload’s value, the cubic volume of a load can also be calculated when properly configured and calibrated using a load volume scanner.load scanner analysis

In addition to providing a fluid means to calculate load weight, the use of a load scanner minimizes the chances of facing discrepancies in measurement by minimizing variables and uncertainties in areas such as load variation, compaction and moisture content. This is because the payload scanning system is integrated with advanced, cutting-edge software which can accurately calculate the load weight while mitigating other inputs and variables. And with such software, users can see exactly how loads are distributed in a truck bed, thus ensuring operations are meeting adequate levels of load transferring.

Flexible, Durable, & Dependable

Structurally, the load volume scanner system is also not only a durable and resilient piece of equipment, but also quite flexible in its applications. The system has been proven to endure years of heavy use in relatively harsh and rugged terrains.load scanner action

The system is also flexible in that it can be installed in a variety of environments, from access driving routes to an adequate haul road or even a dedicated local scanning sites. It is also worth mentioning that even though the load volume scanner is usually hard mounted, it is possible to have it re-installed as many times as may be necessary.

With respect to the industries in which these systems are used (which include but are not limited to extreme weather and remote environments) the load volume scanner system has proved its merit by consistently providing accurate readings. Because it is well engineered, the system can provide all these without going through numerous re-calibration exercises or scheduled services. It is also designed in such a way that the chances or opportunity of operator error occurring is greatly reduced because most of the payload management activities are automated.

The Optimal Alternative to Truck Scales

Finally, it is also worth noting that unlike heavy duty truck scales which are difficult to install and quite rigid, the load scanner system can be operated within a few hours; as a matter of fact you can install it and use it on the first day.

Once the installation is successful, calculations can be made pretty fast and the resulting data can be accessed from anywhere in real time by using some of the advanced features usually contained in such systems. With the advent of mobile telephony, the volume load scanner can be availed on several platforms and other mobile devices. Using the system therefore ensures that all load management processes are automated and fully optimized for maximum benefit of the business. Achieving such efficiencies using heavy duty truck scales is very difficult if not virtually impossible even though achieving the same using a volume load scanner is almost instantaneous.

Truck Scales: Essential Weighing Technology for Many Industries

A truck scale is a simply a large, heavy-duty weighing system that’s designed to calculate the load weight of haul truck and other vehicles that transport goods. Most types of truck scales can either be permanently mounted on a concrete foundation or consisting of portable weighing pads that can easily moved from one location to another.

Portable Truck Weigh Scales

Truck scales are used to weigh mostly heavy duty loads common in mining, construction, and farming applications, to name a few. However, similar technology has been integrated on scales systems for rail cars and even specialized equipment, such as conveyor belts or grain carts (in an agricultural context.)

Common Types of Truck Scale Systems

Although there are many types of truck scales and related weighing systems available today, the basic design of a truck scale can take three primary forms. truck scales Weighbridges

  • The first form is where the scale is surface-mounted with a ramp leading up to the weighing platform. Although not all the same, these fixed units take such names as: surface mounted truck scale, weighbridges, or steel-deck truck scales.
  • The second form is where the truck scale is mounted in a pit so that the weigh platform is level with the road surface. This is a pit-mounted truck scale it is common in agricultural applications that demand accurate load weights of grain and other crops.
  • The third most common form of truck scales are mobile or portable truck scale systems. Perhaps the most widely used in various industry applications, portable truck weigh scales are a more versatile and efficient option. This type of truck scale is shown in the image near the top of this post.

Other more advanced options for truck weigh scale systems for sale are on-board scales, which can calculate loads directly from the truck. This unit is favorable for many reasons and can significantly increase efficiency for many applications.

Primary Uses & Benefits of Truck Scales truck scales mining

  • Truck scales are used in the sale of goods that are valued by weight. This is common in the construction and mining industries where ballast, ore, sand and quarry debris is charged by weight, in addition to farming.
  • Truck scales help to prevent axle overloading that is used in making sure that trucks are safe for use on public highways. Many logistics companies leverage this technology to ensure transport trucks stay under the state legal weight limits.
  • Perhaps a secondary benefit of truck scales is to minimize wear and tear on transport vehicles. By ensuring loads are not too heavy, companies can retain the quality of their trucks for years to come.

Truck scales might not be very well known in modern-day technology, but they serve a vital purpose in many different industries. Truck scale providers like Walz Scale continue to advance the industry standard with new technologies that progress payload management processes to the next level.
