The Walz Load Scanner is a revolutionary system that improves the overall volume and weight measurement processes as well as data management and tracking needs of many businesses involved in hauling and weighing heavy-duty loads. As an alternative to costly truck scales, this advanced load scanning system works in real time to provide a fast and accurate method of measuring payloads while they are in motion.
The Walz Load Scanner is easy to install and operate, and it provides accurate weight and volume data efficiently and accurately. This completely portable load volume scanner uses a system of 3D laser scanners which are used to scan loaded truck beds as they pass under the scanner unit.
A Primer On How The Load Scanner Works
To start, the truck is scanned while empty after which it is loaded and scanned again. The system then assesses the depth and density of loaded materials and generates results of measurement and also creates a 3D image of how the truck is loaded.
A comparison of weight of empty and that of loaded truck is made and the results are displayed on a touch screen operator display. By so doing, the operator is in a position to scan, monitor and manage the data that has been studied and computed by the device.
Endless Applications of the Walz Load Scanner
Management of bulk materials
Suitable for scanning a wide range of materials, the Walz Load Scanner is incorporated in truck hauling operations in the management of the bulk materials such as wood pulp, earth, waste, mulch, biomass, snow, sand aggregate etc. With simple inputs telling the system the density of the hauled materials, the load scanner can convert volume metrics into weight measurements automatically.
Construction and road work
The Walz Load Scanner enhances tracking and management of materials during construction of road works. This scanner technology enables contractors to measure accurately actual material excavated and transported as well as the cost involved. The load scanner measures improve load optimization, reduces cost of project and tracks the total track material moved.
Dredging and remediation
The Walz Load Scanner helps in accurate management of dredging and soil remediation projects. It measures accurately the volume moved, built in reports, and eliminates errors arising due to moisture weight of material as well as provides portable load scanner operations. Below is a video on how the load scanner can be applied to dredging operations.
Waste and debris management
The Walz Load Scanner is very effective in the management of waste loads. When used in landfills, it greatly reduces the truck traffic. Besides that, it facilitates management of coal ash, storm debris, daily cover loads, contract debris dumping as well as improved scanning of borrow pit loads.
Mining and resource extraction
The Walz Load Scanner is very essential in mining and resource extraction operations since it accurately scans and calculates both load volume and load weight. This helps mining operations ensure sufficient loading of materials (by assessing the truck bed distribution of materials) as well as measure payload weight metrics more efficiently compared to mining scales.
Management of grains
As an emerging crop weighing solution for farmers, the Walz Load Scanner enhances harvesting and management of grains and also eliminates the use of expensive weighbridge scale. It provides field load scanning, manages production per field, measures the grain moisture and also reports production per farm. Walz has developed a specialized version for farmers and ag producers called the Yield Load Scanner which offers the same functionality and support as the Walz Load Scanner.
Management of stockpiles
The Walz Load Scanner manages stockpile inventories in real time, increases operational potential, reduces operational cost and increase profits. In addition, the truck load scanner facilitates stockpile management and optimizes operational efficiencies.
Management of mulch, organics and biomass
The Walz Load Scanner is an ideal device used in management of mulch and biomass load. It is important to note that these materials are sold and bought by volume and by using this scanner, operators and customers can accurately measure load volumes in real time. Besides that, this scanner helps to generate load tickets per truck, improve invoicing, improves stock load accuracies, improve customer satisfaction and create 3D images for the settling of materials.
In summary, it is clear that Walz Load Scanner has got many industrial applications such as management of bulk material and stockpile. Besides that, it is simple, accurate and reliable method of measuring in-motion payloads. To learn more visit www.WalzScale.com for more information about the load scanner system.
