Walz Scale axle scales feature low profile designs that deliver accuracy and performance. They are available in different configurations, capacities and lengths and can be used from single to multi-axle vehicles. They feature treaded or smooth top plates and are made of aluminum or steel.
The portable design behind these axles scales make them suitable for locations where is not feasible to install large permanent scales. Also known as "wheel weighers", Walz axle scales can provide reliable accurate performance for mobile or temporary applications. Among the standard features include overload protection and ability to function in heavy-duty operations.
Below we showcase three axle scale systems by Walz Scale and how these portable scale systems offer incredible accuracy, efficiency, and easy of use for various weighing needs.
Heavy Duty Axle Scale System
The heavy duty axle scale is a versatile scale system built by Walz Scale that's ideal for locations where concrete foundations are not practical (thus demanding portability.) With no need for a concrete base, the installation and setup is simple and easy, as the axle scales can be placed directly on compacted gravel.
The heavy duty axle scale system is a portable axle scale is compatible with multiple peripherals, spanning from receipt and ticket printers and digital weight terminals to portable driver kiosk systems and large weight displays. These axle scale systems can measure the weight of vehicle axle loads up to 80,000 lbs with accurate precision.
In order to maximize durability for heavy duty operations, this particular axle scale system is engineered with structural I-Beams made of steel and with super heavy duty load cells. Walz heavy duty axle scales provide superior reliability and accuracy over other systems and will outperform most of the competitor scales on the market.
Among the Walz Scale heavy duty axle scales are the:
- AXHD-7 Axle Scale with weigh capacity of 80,000 lbs and dimensions of 7' long x 3' wide
- AXHD-11 Axle Scale with the same weigh capacity as the AXHD-7, but larger dimensions at 11' long x 3' wide
Both axle scale models can operate with a multitude of peripheral devices, including the driver LED display which gives drivers the ability to view the weight measurements from the comfort of their vehicle cab.
AXW 30T Axle Scale System
The AXW 30T Axle Scale Systems (also known as "portable wheel weighers") are mobile scales that offer both static or dynamic weighing. The AXW-Series of scales are made from a extremely durable piece of aluminum that's ultra lightweight, making it easy to carry. The waterproof weighing pads make them capable in tough environmental conditions, and included are lightweight removable ramps that provide easy access.
AXW 30T Axle Scales have a reputation as a highly accurate means to calculate total vehicle weights and axle weights of up to 30 tons (or 60,000 lbs.) These systems are among the leading truck axle scales on the market, ideal for their portability and easy installation.
AXW 45T Axle Scale System
The AXW 45T-Series of axle scale systems by Walz Scale allow for the measuring of vehicles weighing up to 90,000 Lbs or 45 tons. They provide portability for total vehicle weight and vehicle axle weight measurements. The AXW 45T axle scales are very similar in design to the AXW 30T-series as they are made of single piece of aluminum and are highly lightweight for optimal portability.
The AXW 45T axle scale system is fully waterproof and can perform in any weather conditions. For applications that require operating the scale on earth foundations or on gravel are available optional off-road bases. Removable ramps are included with every AXW 45T weighing pad. What's unique about this form of axle scale is that they can be used for in-motion weighing.
