Truck Scales increase onsite efficacy with in-motion weighing.

Press Release Summary:

As unattended or manned weigh station, LowSpeed Weigh-In-Motion (LS-WIM) scales can help automate processing of any type of truck traffic at any type of facility. Minimally invasive design increases flow through any type of entry/exit gate to meter loads coming in or going out. These in-ground, weigh-in-motion scales, able to be installed within a few days, feature NTEP-Certified strain gauge load cell technology, do not require drivers to stop, and integrate with diverse devices/software.

Weigh-In-Motion Scales Increase Onsite Efficiency

Minneapolis, MN – Intercomp's Weigh-In-Motion Scale Systems are being used around the world for more efficient, cost-effective operations. Intercomp's American Made, LowSpeed Weigh-In-Motion, (LS-WIM) system functions as either an unattended or manned weigh station. This scale system is minimally invasive when compared to large, inground platform truck scales and will increase the flow of trucks through any type of entry/exit gate to meter loads coming in or going out.

The installation of Intercomp's LS-WIM In-Ground Weigh-In-Motion Scales in place of older static in-ground truck scales that require drivers to stop on the scales to manually receive a weight, will increase overall efficiency. Large static scales require incoming drivers to wait in line until the scale becomes available prior to entry, limiting throughput. The larger size and complexity of the older static truck scales also increases annual maintenance costs.

Alternatively, the non-invasive nature of the small footprint of Intercomp's LS-WIM scales, when compared to traditional 65+ foot static in-ground truck scales, means installation can be completed in a few days, keeping downtime to a minimum. They are also far less expensive to purchase and install then traditional static platform in-ground truck scales. Intercomp's LS-WIM Scales have the ability to be integrated with printers, overhead displays and traffic lights, along with cameras, audio integration, RFID and cloud-based software for remote viewing and data recording.

Aaron Van Heel, Marketing Manager at Intercomp states, "WIM is an exciting solution to streamline weight gathering operations." Intercomp's LS-WIM Weigh-In-Motion Systems feature industry-leading, NTEP Certified strain gauge load cell technology, the same type used in static truck scales for increased accuracy, repeatability and fast response times as drivers move through the weigh station without having to stop.

Intercomp's LS-WIM solution can help to automate the processing of any type of truck traffic at any type of facility, no matter how remote. Intercomp's complete line of WeighIn-Motion equipment has been field-tested and proven for a wide variety of Industrial, Freight, Seaport, Rail Yard, Agriculture, and Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS). System capabilities range from Low-Speed WIM to High-Speed WIM Applications for high volume data collection and screening for direct enforcement with Virtual Weigh-In-Motion Systems.
