A Specialized Onboard Scale

When it comes to businesses operating in the construction, mining, shipping, and agricultural fields, it’s essential to know exactly how much product is being moved. Individual companies also need to keep track of how much strain is being placed on their company-owned vehicles, such as a forklift or a dump truck. With this in mind, one of the key pieces of equipment our Walz Scale team recommends to create a successful inventory is an industry-specific onboard scale. 

In short, an onboard scale is a weighing solution that’s designed to determine the approximate — or exact — weight of a loaded vehicle. Not only is this data essential for determining how efficient your company is and how much is being accomplished each day, but it also prevents employees from overburdening company vehicles. At Walz Scale, we provide many onboard scale options that encompass truck scanners, wheel loaders, and even portable truck scales. Finding the right version of this tool for your specific purposes is critical.

Once again, this type of weighing solution will vary from company to company due to a difference in processes and end goals. However, Walz Scale recommends having a tool in your commercial, professional inventory that provides accurate data for how much a product itself weighs (without accounting for the weight of a certain vehicle). The most important aspects to look for when determining which scale asset should be included in your collection of tools are:

  • Heavy-duty, durable construction
  • Large, readable digital displays (for both numbers and units)
  • Overload protection

The combination of all three features allows your entire operation to move seamlessly from task to task, gathering the important information that you need without worrying about equipment breakage or confusion. In addition to providing high-quality truck scanners and wheel loaders for many different clients, Walz Scale also provides different standard scale options to choose from.

A Volumetric Scanner

Aside from knowing the approximate or exact weight of the materials your company deals with, you also need no-contact tools for larger operations. A critical addition to your operation’s inventory of tools is an industry-specific or specialized volumetric scanner; a tool like this is designed to provide accurate data for the volume of a certain amount of material to streamline processes later down the road. Walz Scale has a large number of volume-centered means of measuring material without having to get your hands or your employees’ hands dirty. 

For example, a mining load scanner or a train load scanner can instantly provide accurate information on how much of a product is transported, what the density of the material is, and the position of the materials. But these volumetric scanners are also perfect for companies who work within the context of shipping, recycling, commercial retail, and more.
