Scales for Forklift Trucks 

Several manufacturer offers OEM built-in scale in the forklifts which can provide functionality partly on the customers' requests.

Scales of Forklifts can be divided into two groups:

   One is weighing systems where weighing procedure is based on

   hydraulic pressure in the llifting cylinder. These systems morely do static

   weighing while forklift stand still but more advanced version are able to

   measure load by driving it giving more comfortable and fast operation.

   The loadcell versions of scales have legal for trade accuracy by using

  special forks on the truck with included loadcells. Weighing datas are

  transmitted wireless to the display unit in the cabin.

  • Enables check-weighing of incoming and outgoing goods.

  • Increases vehicle efficiency and promotes best operator use minimising machine downtime for servicing or repair.

  • Maintains accuracy; requires no periodic re-calibration or servicing.

  • Maintains lifting capacity and driver visibility.

 

 

Features:

  • LCD indicates ‘calculated’ weight with  a bar graph of load status.

  • Total channel displays sum of all entered load weights.

  • Accuracy +/- 2% of truck capacity.

  • Initial audible alarm at 90% of permitted load with continuous audible alarm and flashing display at and in excess of 100%.

  • Overload logging capability.

  • Quick and easy installation and unique bracket enables installation of the instrument in any position.

  • Proven technology in a robust waterproof enclosure sealed to IP67.

Outset miniViper static weighing - cost-efficiently

 

miniVIPER is the most competitive static weight control system in the market, that combines simplicity of use, high precision and immediate display of the weight of transported materials on all types of fork-lift trucks. A display mounted in the cab shows the net weight of the materials using a pressure sensor installed on the hydraulic lifting system.

RDS Loadmaster a100 R&D MID - legal for trade dynamic weighing system

 

Where leag for trade weighing is in request we offer the most advanced Topcon product for forklift truck: the Loadmaster Alpha 100 R&D.

A dynamic on-board weighing system for forklifts that meets SOLAS Method 2 requirements.

LOADMASTER a100 has been designed to operate within the fastest loading environments and in the toughest of conditions, providing the weight of cargo to be packed into a container. LOADMASTER a100 is an automatic catch weighing instrument, MID class Y (b) type approved. Features SQL database with XML data output for integration with Terminal Operating Systems.

The RDS LOADMASTER a100 uses a 7” colour, resistive touch screen display and additional physical keys providing a modern and ergonomic operator interface.

 

  The system can be retrofitted onto forklifts with no major modifications required to the

  machine.

The system measures hydraulic pressure. The pressure signals are captured and filtered through a weighing ‘arc’ provided by reference and direction sensors.

 

All signals are processed in the RDS Smart Box and the resultant weight calculation is sent to the terminal mounted in the cabin.

 

SQL database capability with up to 8 reference fields provides virtually unlimited inputs of products, customers, trucks, hauliers, locations, destinations, mix blends and notes.

 

Video input for switching head unit into reversing camera mode removes the need for additional screen, releasing valuable cab space.

Main advantages:

  • Colour touch screen display - Clear, uncluttered display provides intuitive operation

  • Hydraulic oil temperature compensation option - Accurate weight information within normal operating temperatures.

  • Target load - Set individual product target. Ensure correct loading.

  • GPS product recognition - Automatic product selection.

  • Reversing camera input - One screen, two functions.

  • Pre-set Tare function - Net weighing for pallets and containers.

  • SQL database functionality - Ease of use and interfacing with TOS

  • Stores, multiple job and blend capability with advanced memory job search and report function - Accurate record keeping, traceability & stock management.

  • 5 memorised quick pre-selections for repeat job set up - Multiple active job capability.

  • GPRS and Wi-Fi connectivity options. - One or 2-way communication with back office.

  • Static and dynamic weighing modes for ‘weighing on the lift’ - Faster operation.

  • XML data output via serial, ethernet and USB memory stick - Safe & efficient data handling.

  • Printer option with configurable output - Hard copy of load summaries, totals, company logo product marketing

  • Calibration ‘Nudge’ - Quick and easy calibration adjustment to match site reference

  • Internal audible alarm - Set to alarm at overload threshold
