Why Vehicle Weighing Pads

As mentioned earlier Portable Weighing Pads are not a new thing on the market. The biggest change for Portable Weighing Pads is the price point reduction, for a system that used to cost well over $10k and were difficult to find suppliers within Australia who knew how to operate, support and calibrate Portable Weighing Pads.

This has recently been changed, with the increase in demand for Portable Weighing Applications and with increased on-road fines from transport departments the requirements to be compliant has increased drastically over the last few years.

Here at Cody Corporation we bring in quality weighing equipment for all applications from On-Board Weighing Equipment, to Crane Scales, Forklift Scales and Portable Weighing Pads.

How Portable Weighing Pads Work

Similar to Weighbridges, Portable Weighing Pads act in a similar sense. With load cells placed within the pad and calibrated to less than 1% negative accuracy Portable Weighing Pads can be used exactly the same as a fixed Weighbridge.

One of the best features about Portable Weighing Pads is the fact they are portable, they don’t take up a huge amount of space within your yard and you can have multiple sets in your yard setup to allow multiple trucks or machines to be weighed at one time. This increases the traffic flow management of your yard and increases productivity as well as saving on space and maintenance.

By having 4, 6 or 8 pads connected wirelessly to a display box, all setup on a flat surface and pre-calibrated you can be sure whatever it is you are weighing is accurate and within legal load limits to fit within road safety regulations.

 

Weigh Up Weigh Pads

The next time you are looking at getting a Weighbridge installed in your yard, quarry or site for any weighing purposes do not overlook the ability of Portable Weighing pads as an alternative to the expensive and fixed location Weighbridge.
