Weight Systems Inc.'s Sugar Cane Wagon Scale Revolutionizes Industry
Powerful Invention Guarantees Reliable Field Weights and Maximum Efficiency
Laplace, LA -- Weight Systems Inc., which provides bulk-weighing scales, scale controllers, and other weighing technologies for industries and businesses, announces its most innovative product yet: the Sugar Cane Wagon Scale.
Invented by Weight Systems Inc. Field Engineer Jay Roberts, the Sugar Cane Wagon Scale completely changes the way sugar cane growers do business. Before trucks head to the mill, farmers must estimate how much cane they are loading. If the trucks deliver too small an amount, more trips are required. Worse, if a vehicle contains more than the agreed-upon weight, the grower isn't paid for the overage.
Previously, this difficult weight estimation had to be done visually in the field, and errors were common, due to the unpredictability of sugar cane density. With the all-in-one Sugar Cane Wagon Scale, the farmer immediately knows exactly how much product is going to the grinder. Capable of measuring up to 10 tons with an accuracy of plus or minus 500 pounds, the Scale ensures that users get the full value of their load.
Each Wagon has four sensors under the basket that transmit data electronically to the truck's cab so the operator can tell exactly how much weight is being added. Far from being standard off-the-shelf scale items, the specialized load sensors and weight indicators were developed specifically by Roberts for the Sugar Cane Wagon Scale.
The potential cost savings for growers are tremendous. And truck drivers appreciate the mechanism too. Better information on how many tons are in the trailer means fewer trips and ensures that the driver will not receive a ticket for exceeding legal weight limitations on the way to the mill. The Scale is reliable even in rainy conditions. Extremely durable, it can be installed on existing wagons in as little as one day.
