Walz Load Scanner

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.

Display Unit

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

The Walz Load Scanner can aid a wide variety of industry applications, which are outlined below.

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.

How Railcar Weigh Scales Are Revolutionizing Payload Management for Mining Companies

Payloads, which are common metrics in mining and industrial contexts, are simply defined as bulk units or loads that are shipped to the next party in a supply chain. They are called “payloads” because each unit is measured and valued, often reflecting the price or pay-scale in which they can be sold.

railcar weigh scale

The larger the average payload, the more important payload management becomes and the greater the gains in efficiency and profitability that can be realized. Margins are tight and transportation costs are high in all forms of logistics and transportation. And mining companies have a demand for weighing systems that can not only meet their needs to determine payload weight, but in manner that’s efficient and accurate.

Railcar Weigh Scales Provide Efficiency & Accuracy

For mining companies that utilize rail transport to move heavy payloads, railcar weigh scales are one form of technology that offers a practical way to weigh and manage payloads without interrupting the flow of materials to their destination and without disrupting the efficiency of the mining and transportation process.

Railcar scales are now available as a fixed or portable solution for payload management. These railcar weighing systems are optimal for mining companies and other industries that use rail to transport similar types of payloads. Portable rail scales can be deployed when and where they are needed, on demand.

While portable railcar scales have their applications, moving railcar scales around takes time. In some applications, fixed rail scales or some combination of fixed and portable railcar scales offer the best solution for knowing how much is being moved from point A to point B.

Specialized Rail Scale Designs

Railcar weigh scales are available in multiple capacities and scale sizes to meet any need and in axle or full bridge designs. Both static and in-motion rail scales are available to provide solutions for any heavy-duty rail weighing application. Suppliers like WalzScale.com.

Accuracy is key and mismeasurements cost time and money in lost efficiency. In mining operations and some heavy transport applications, stopping or rerouting the payload for weighing can also be a less-than-perfect solution. Railcar weigh scales can be used in-motion to accurately rail weigh technology without having to stop or divert course, as is the case with some other weighing systems which may be used in the company’s transport process.

Railcar scales also provide an effective way to protect against overloading, virtually eliminating the concern, promoting safety, and extending the usable life of expensive transportation equipment.
