The new load scanner technology from Walz can certainly be a great addition to a number of operations and companies that need to calculate the volume and weight of large equipment or truck loads. Whether for farming or mining, Walz Scale offers an accurate and dependable truck load scanner system that successfully caters to these kinds of industries, and many more.
The load scanner system designed by Walz Scale delivers optimal accuracy necessary for payload management and determining the precise volumetric measurements of truck beds and other load bearing equipment. While it still might be a mystery for some as to how this load volume scanning technology is becoming the new truck scale, the way the system works is actually quite simple. Below we delve further in detail about the truck load scanner from Walz, what it’s composed of, its functionality, and its overall features.
Walz Load Scanner Components
The load scanner comes fully configured from the company and consists of many components. They are Walz Load Scanner Head, instructions guide and Payload Pro Operating System. In essence, this system is very easy to set-up and use. As compared to alternative systems such as weight equipment and expensive truck scales, a load scanner by Walz Scale offers you an affordable solution for managing load data.
What’s So Great About This Load Scanning Technology?
This Load Scanner uses latest laser technology to deliver results. It uses laser light in order to accurately determine the exact load carried in open top trucks. This technology works irrespective of whether the trucks is in motion or is traveling dynamically. View the load scanner in action by checking out the video below.
Volumetric Load Calculations
With the volumetric load calculations using this latest Walz Scale, now it is possible to take notes of products that are loaded onto the truck. This unique feature has been incorporated keeping in the mind the needs of various industries dealing with loads such as transportation, mining, or construction industries.
Fully Automated Operation and Monitoring
This particular feature is very helpful and it helps businesses to monitor their trucks while they’re being loaded in the warehouse right to the stage of transportation and delivery. This system can also keep a record of empty trucks.
The system scans the load and can also calculate the exact weight of the load. This load weight is then compared with other trucks in the system. When trucks are on road, this record is kept and maintained till the time trucks reach their destination and are emptied.
The benefits of Walz Scale load scanner increases due to its inherent ability to work with other devices and components. It can work in association with mounting hardware, computers, reporting software and 3D scanners. To make the process of documentation and reporting easier, the scanner is shipped by the company with all these components. For more information about compatibility features, see the load scanner details at WalzScale.com.
Data Reporting In Real-Time
Real-time data reporting is an important feature that ensures that truck load is according to the requirement and is now acceptable for delivery. This volumetric load scanning system also reports in real time that trucks have arrived at their destination and are now being emptied.
Precise Load Scanning Calculations Possible
In operations where load’s cubic volume is required, the direct measurement reported by the Walz Scale delivers a reliable and accurate measurement which you can use. Unlike other payload management and valuation systems, this system eliminates uncertainties and variable in load variation, compaction and moisture content. In short, this system offers you an accurate volume calculation and eliminates all old school methodologies such as guessing and counting truck loads.
System Scanning And Measuring The Volume
As the truck or any other target vehicles arrives under the scanner, it precisely scans the load volume within 0.3m³ and immediately creates a 3D model or a surface profile. It then compares this profile with the profile when vehicle is completely empty, and the loadscan is then able to accurately calculate the load volume to within 1 percent. Every vehicle using load scanner if fitted with special RFID tag that identifies it as it passes through the load scanner and then matches it to its load. The maximum permissible drive-through speed is 3.7mph (6kmph/hr).
Volumetric truck measure is a requirement within the quarry, civil construction, and landscape supply industries, and many other sectors where flowable solids are traded by the truck-load. Portability is also a good feature of this 3D volume load scanner which is worth mentioning. Based on the scanner’s design, you can choose permanent mounting of the system in a specific location as well as can choose a portable configuration for using this system.
By working with volume instead of weight, a more accurate measure can be successfully obtained. Operators of the Walz Scale load volume scanner can literally “see” the load, whereas volume measurement is converted from weight is commonly affected by various environmental factors like moisture and varying material densities.
The scanner’s system allows to customize reports according to the requirements of the managing personnel. You can choose the report details and the also graphically generated images for printing or for any other use.
