Reputable truck scale supplier, Walz Scale, has introduced a new line of weighing and dimensioning systems. Suitable for a wide spectrum of businesses and applications, ranging from shipping and receiving operations to freight forwarders, Walz Scale's new dimensional weighing and scanning systems offer both simple and advanced solutions for various needs.
Unveiling its new line of cubing and dimensioning products via DimensionalWeighing.com, Walz Scale applies a similar 3D volumetric laser scanning technology found in its popular Walz Load Scanner system, which scans units and truck bed loads to generate volume-based measurements. However, this laser scanning technology has been simplified into a number of systems used for product/package dimensioning.
In-motion Conveyor-based Cubing Systems
Of the most advanced and highly-demanded systems is the IMPS in-motion package scanner that operates on a conveyor. This dynamic, high-out conveyor cuber scans the dimensions of the unit, in addition to measuring the weight, in streamlined fashion. The system can operate as either a standalone unit, or can easily integrate into existing conveyor systems.
And like virtually all of the cubing systems and dimensioning products from Walz Scale, the system is dimensional weight compliant with UPS, FedEX, DHL, USPS, and most other carriers.
SPS Static Package Dimensional Weighing & Cubing System
The "SPS," or Static Package Scanner, is a more basic solution for simple dimensioning needs. The SPS is an easy-to-use static dimensional weighing, scanning, and cubing system that's designed for parcel shipping and warehouse management. Now users can leverage highly-advanced dimensioning capabilities at an affordable price.
IMCS In-Motion Cargo Dimensioning & Cubing System
Perhaps most advantageous for logistics and high-volume distribution companies is the IMCS In-Motion Cargo Dimensioning and Cubing System.
The IMCS dimensional cubing system from Walz Scale is a conveyor-based system that is designed to generate accurate dimensional data for palletized freight. This system is ideal for larger shipping and distribution operations that require fast, high volume dimensional cubing.
These are just a few of the cubing and dimensioning systems that are closely aligned with road and transport-based businesses. To learn more about Walz Scale's incredible new line of products, visit DimensionalWeighing.com.
Weighing scales are very important type of equipment needed at various levels of operation that involves logistics. In essence, the shipping and logistics industry thrives on accurate measurements to avoid penalties and prevent accidents.
Weighbridge truck scales are used to facilitate accurate measurement of loads being shipped. A typical weighbridge scale depicts various features that aid quick capturing and recording of truck weights, particularly the loads contained in them. Since the shipping and logistics sector is very broad and operates in large-scale margins, weighbridge scales are often fixed permanently on the weighing platform.
Weighbridge scales are often generally referred to as "truck scales," although there are vast difference in the types of truck scales available (i.e. portable truck scales, onboard truck weigh scales, etc.) Weighbridges are unique in that they are often fixed in a certain location where they will used consistently for several years.
Streamlining Logistics with Weighbridge Scales
Weighbridge truck scales are used in various industries and sectors of the economy including agriculture, mining, shipping and logistics. These scales have been used for years to optimize the measurement process. However, modern scales incorporate computer technologies and efficiencies.
They are therefore characterized by various enhancement features that not only guarantee accuracy, but also bring in important metrics among other varied benefits. A quintessential weighbridge scale used in streamlining logistics consists of three main sets of features; sensors, processor and output displays.
- Sensors - These features are installed on the truck road/rail where the load passes through. They are capable of quickly capturing readings of trucks and truck loads. Modern sensors use high-end computer technologies that allow minimal contact while giving the most accurate reading.
- Processor - This feature basically uses the information read by sensors to calculate accurate weights of truck loads at all levels. Sensors usually capture several readings at different positions. The processor uses all these inputs to give the ultimate weight.
- Output displays - unlike traditional scales, today’s output displays characterize large ergonomic screens that allow quick reading of weights. These displays are separate parts and allow reading to be taken from a distance.
The logistics and shipping industry is tasked with measuring numerous loads that pass through ports and pre-shipment warehouses on a daily basis. Their activities require quick measurement of each load and more importantly precision in accuracy. If these attributes are not there, companies operating this business can suffer violation penalties of overloading and even loose payload revenues.
It is therefore an obligation to ensure accuracy in measurement. Weighbridge scales bring the efficiencies of computer technologies by significantly reducing the time needed to measure trucks and truck loads. They feature memories capable of holding recorded data that is used in tracking and making various decisions. With these scales, optimizing logistics one load at a time becomes much easier and quicker. Their efficiency ensures that there is no delays in measurement and shipments are made in due time.
While weighbridge truck scales bring various benefits to the business, there are so many of them and choosing the right one may be daunting. Ensure the chosen scale can be perfectly installed on your truck rails, gives accurate readings and suites your specific needs.
Weighbridge truck scales are inseparable parts of any large-scale venture that involves measurement of loads. They are very useful for logistics, agriculture and mining ventures. However, ensure you choose the best options that will bring forth above mentioned efficiencies to your business.
A farmer needs an effective solution to weigh the harvest load of his trucks while minimizing redundant steps and downtime during the weighing process.
Walz Scale designed and integrated a dump pit truck scale that enables the farmer and his team to utilize their current dump pits to weigh harvest payloads. The intuitive design of these particular truck scale systems allow drivers to measure weight while on the scale, as well as dump their trucks without having to moving the vehicle.
With the dump pit truck scale from Walz Scale, farmers can conveniently control their weighing process and increase throughput during the harvest season.
Some of the features and benefits of Walz pit truck scale system include:
- Simple Foundation Design
- Simple Installation
- Steel Deck Design
- Widths up to 14 feet wide
