While most companies have held on to their truck scales and cumbersome weighing equipment, several users are realizing the advantages of the load volume scanner system by Walz.
The Technology behind Walz Load Scanner
In short, the load volume scanner system takes the scanned volume data and converts it into weight. This offers the added value of volumetric analysis for load position monitoring and ensuring proper loading of trucks. The volumetric load scanner by Walz is a rather simple tool that offers a plethora of benefits.
The scanned images can be used to determine the position of the load, to compact the load and to monitor spillage. It is a good way to monitor operational inefficiencies and maximize output. It has been designed that even an amateur can set it up within minutes; all you need is a laptop/PC, a mounting hardware and 3D laser scanner.
The load management software (also from Walz) that accompanies the load scanner offers a simple interface. The software can generate load tickets automatically and is also capable or tailored reporting making it easy to manage. It is also possible to integrate the scanner with a video vehicle recognition (from Walz).
How Walz Load Scanner System WorksThe load scanner from Walz exists either as a permanent or a portable system. The trucks drive under the Walz load scanner at a speed of 3.5 mph (higher speed versions are available). The load scanner scans empty trucks then scans the loaded trucks and compares corresponding scans.
Each truck is fitted with RFID tags to make the process automatic. Excavator display is one of the features that make load operation and management easy. It allows you to manage load from the excavator cab using the screen kiosk system.
