The Walz Load Scanner (also known as the Volumetric Payload Scanner, or VPS, by WalzScale.com) has revolutionized weighing process for numerous industries, allowing for faster open-top truck volumetric calculations and consequently faster payload delivery.
The Walz Load Scanner bypasses traditional methods of payload measurement by utilizing cutting edge technology and highly advanced algorithms to allow for non-contact laser scanning. As a result, many businesses, spanning from agricultural producers to mining companies, are leveraging a more efficient and cost-effective means to calculate the value of their loads.
Providing The Perfect Alternative
Traditional methods of payload calculation are costly and cumbersome. They require the purchase of highly expensive scales and often the installation of said scales in a permanent location. Portable scales are bulky and not easily transported. This amounts to an unnecessary expenditure of time, money and energy, all of which could be better spent meeting project goals.
The Walz Load Scanner does away with the need for costly, unwieldy scales, and works by comparing an empty scan of a truck bed with a scan of the same loaded truck, rendering a three dimensional image of the payload. Trucks can be outfitted with RFID tags to facilitate the process. The trucks then drive under the overhead scanner at a speed of roughly 3.5 miles per hour, though high-speed scanning is possible, as well. Additionally, the Walz Load Scanner can typically cost less than half of traditional truck scales and weighbridges.
Unlike traditional methods of volumetric calculation, the load scanner from Walz minimizes variables in payload compaction (moisture, load variation), and eliminates the need for inexact tracking methods, like counting truck loads.
Easy Install & Use. Minimal Maintenance Required.
The Walz Load Scanner system is available as a portable unit or a permanently installed device. Installation is fast and easy, and the portable units are easily transported to any given worksite. Portable units are ideal for the construction industry and for road or highway projects, allowing for a mobile solution to monitoring goods and materials.
Additionally, the Scanner is built to withstand everything that’s thrown at it, and the Walz Load Scanner has been proven to function in even the harshest of industry conditions, like excavation operations and high-volume mining sites. Unlike traditional truck scales and weighbridges, the Walz Load Scanner can potentially go years without requiring recalibration or scheduled maintenance. It has been hard-tested over time, and manufactured to reduce the chances of operator error.
The Walz Load Scanner provides detailed and highly accurate measurements of payloads, along with rendering three dimensional, thermographic images of the same. Individual truck load tickets can be printed out, or they can be stored on a cloud-based account and accessed for later reference.
Seamless Data Analysis & Cloud-based Storage
Additionally, the Walz Load scanning system allows you to monitor your materials and stockpiles in real time. All of your data can be tracked and reviewed via your desktop, laptop, tablet or outdoor kiosk using the patented Payload Pro Operating System.
You can even monitor your data from the comfort of your truck cab, using the Excavator Display, a touch-screen, window-mounted kiosk system. The ease and speed with which you can access relevant worksite data allows you to track material production without disrupting your workflow, enabling you to save time and money, and get the job done faster.
