The load scanner system can easily compare loaded scans to the empty scans and can generate a load ticket for each and every load that shows net payload weight and actual material carried volume if operator has entered the known material density into the system.

Permanent or Portable Load Scanner Operation

The goal of the company was to provide a load scanner system that was flexible to meet variety of needs. Based on the design, the customers can easily mount this system on any fixed location or use it in a portable configuration. The following configurations are available:load scanner data

  • Semi-Permanent installation
  • Permanent installation
  • Portable trailer mounted
  • Portable truck mounted

Unattended Vehicle Identification

The system can scan the vehicles without any need of operator if you incorporate the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system into this load scanner system. This technology comprises of a special RFID reader and small RFID tags (mounted on every truck). When the vehicle approaches the scanner, the load scanner reader technology will immediately read the truck mounted tag and automatically operate the scanner to successfully capture the driver’s identification, vehicle’s scan, material carried and much more.

Truck Speed

This dynamic in-motion truck load scanning process can be operated at speeds of around 25+ mph, but the ideal speed to achieve higher accuracy is 5mph. The ability to scan trucks at higher speeds means that this technology can be easily incorporated into your existing work flow without any disruption to production.

Load Scanner for Your Trucks

The Walz truck Load Scanner has been designed and tested to scan many types of open top vehicles from large off-road mining trucks and semi-tractor trailer trucks.

Load receipts or load tickets are generated for all loaded scans. Within the load scanner system settings, you can choose to print or email these load tickets in real time. The included load images are for visual representation of the load and for much improved customer acceptance. These may include the following data: Net Payload, Carried Volume, 3D load images, and Gross Vehicle Weight. You can choose the data to by included in the tickets as per your preference.

Weighbridge scales have been used for many years in order to optimize the processes of heavy-duty load measurement from trucks. Most often, they are referred to as steel-deck truck scales, yet they are unlike other varieties of truck scales. 


Weighbridge truck scales are most often permanently affixed to a particular location. These scales are mounted on concrete platforms, which allows for rugged and durable use, as wll as minimal damage to be incurred to the equipment or the trucks themselves. This allows weighbridges to be utilized consistently for multiple years.

Features & Advantages of Weighbridge Scales

Weighbridge scales are built with a rugged design, robust sensors for weight, and are manufactured with the highest quality of standards and ongoing support. Weighbridge truck scales, Walz Scale weighbridges are characterized by a variety of advanced features that guarantee dependable calculations and accurate measurements. This quintessential scale provided by Weighbridge that is used in the field of logistics is composed of a trio of features known as: output displays, sensors and processor.

  • Output Displays – Weighbridges come standard with a separate, large, ergonomic screen that allows for the swift reading of weights.
  • Sensors – They are installed on the truck rail/road in order to capture the readings of a truck and its load as it passes through. This allows for no damage to be sustained to the truck and keeps time off-road to the bare minimum.
  • Processor – Uses the information provided by the sensors in order to accurately calculate the weight of trucks at all levels.

Taking Shipping & Logistics to the Next Level

Within the industries of shipping and logistics, numerous loads pass through pre-shipment warehouses and ports and must be measured. Weighbridges allow for the most accurate readings through their incredible variety of scales. Depending on the use and location of the scale, they can be pit or surface mounted. Any vehicle scale application can be met by a factory manufactured, performance tested weighbridge scale.

Any weighbridge can be paired with state-of-the-art accessories, indicators and software so that your data management and weighing needs complete and comprehensive. With the wide variety of advanced truck scales for sale available, as well as the amount of vendors that can provide them, it is imperative to ensure that you choose the proper weighbridge for your particular needs.

The use of a weighbridge truck scale will save thousands of dollars because they are able to help in avoiding costly fees for having trucks over weight limits set by regulations. These scales are also incredibly beneficial for those in mining and agricultural industries. It can be an incredibly daunting task to get a proper weight measurement in those industries that the use of weighbridges appears to be the answer to their prayers.
