The Technology

The Walz Load Scanner System utilizes laser technology and advanced algorithms to provide a dynamic non contact solution for managing material truck loads.  This technology is poised to revolutionize the bulk material transportation industry.

Tough - Dependable - Built for Work

System Operation

The Walz Load Scanner System operates by comparing empty scans of vehicles to their loaded scans.  Typically vehicles are fitted with RFID tags to automate this process, delivering a fully automated measurement system.  The scanner systems only need to be positioned above the moving vehicle to provide accurate load volumes and high definition load imagery.

Cary Back Monitoring

Monitor carry back on every load with the Walz Payload Scanner.  The image below shows carry back in a haul truck.  These images and actual load volumes are critical in determining actual production monitoring.  Alert drivers to carry back or automatically adjust production based on actual empty bed capacity.

Production Monitoring

Monitor actual production and verify that your loading and haulage assets are operating at their optimum capacity.  The real time load scanning technology will provide accurate carried values for every load.  This technology allows mine sites to monitor production without affecting daily operational flow.

Material Fragmentation

The Walz Payload Scanner provides high definition imagery for every load.  These load images can be used to verify and monitor material fragmentation and blast efficiencies.  Further developments are underway to automate the system to provide real time material fragmentation analysis beyond just imagery.

Load Optimization

The Walz Payload Scanner provides operations with advanced tools for managing shovel operator performance.  Operations can now verify loading practices on every load, improving loading optimization and reducing maintenance costs associated with improper load placement.

Data Management

The Walz Payload Scanner System has been designed to interface directly with mine site data infrastructure systems.  This allows for the data to be delivered to the key mine site personnel for monitoring and analysis.  Furthermore this load data can be shared with shovel operators in real time allowing operations to adjust operational practices in real time.

Material Density in Real Time

Monitor material densities in real time when you integrate your Walz Load Scanner with your haul trucks onboard payload system or axle scale.  This feature is ideal for applications that can benefit from monitoring accurate material densities.  To further automate the process, Walz also offers dynamic or in-motion axle scales for use with our scanner system.  These portable scale systems allow for the weighing of vehicles in-motion.

Tracking Production

The Walz Payload Scanner is the ideal choice for operations looking to track production accuratly in real time.

Payload Monitoring by Weight

The Walz Payload Scanner can be utilized to identify actual carried “weight” payloads in haulage assets.  To achieve this we need the following information.

1. Load Volume (Walz Payload Scanner)

2. Material Density


Payload Monitoring by Volume

The Walz Load Scanner can be utilized to identify actual carried “volume” payloads in haulage assets.  To achieve this we need the following information.

1. Load Volume (Walz Payload Scanner)
