How the WLS works

The Walz Load Scanner System utilizes class I (eye safe) laser technology and advanced patent pending algorithms to provide a dynamic non contact solution for managing material truck loads.  The system works very similar to how you would operate a truck or axle scale.  Trucks are scanned both empty and loaded and the difference between the two is the actual volume load of material carried by the truck.  


In-motion operation - extreme accuracy - simple setup - simple operation - high definition images per truck load - built-in ticketing system - optional cloud based data management
