Intercomp's new scale system ensures trailers can be loaded to optimum levels
says that its new PT300DW filling scale offers a portable, cost-effective way to measure the total weight of trailers while loading. The scale system allows the user to maximise load and also assists in tracking inventories of various items. The scale has been designed to work in conjunction with the firm’s AX900 axle scale system. However, it can also be used in conjunction with the company’s range of scale pads, in a wireless, or cabled, configuration.
The package features RFX wireless weighing technology, which allows integration with any existing Intercomp RFX-enabled scale pad system. Each heavy-duty pad is rated to a maximum weight of 13.6tonnes, and features an aluminum handle, with wheels mounted to the opposite side of the scale to aid in proper placement and transit.
The pad uses the proven PT300DW platform, with an additional CNC-machined piece of T6061-T6 billet aluminum attached to the weighing surface. The hardened surface strengthens the scale pad to withstand forces generated by the supports of most semi-trailers.
