Accuweigh 's Southern Region General Manager, Jason Ferguson, won an order to extend the existing weighbridge at Unigrain's Smeaton site in Victoria.
The existing 18m long Toledo weighbridge will have a new 10m weighbridge grafted on to one end for a new overall length of 28m to cater for the longer B-Double trucks now commonly used by transport companies.
Accuweigh will be fitting Flintec stainless steel loadcells under the new weighbridge to perform the weighing duties. The existing Toledo indicator will be removed and both weighbridges will be fitted with Australian Made Rinstrum R5000 digital weight indicators and then a Rinstrum 6700 summing unit will be used to totalise the weights. A Rinstrum D740 high visibility remore display will be fitted at one end of the weighbridges to allow the truck drivers to see their truck weights also.
Accuweigh has branches across Australia with the capabilities to extend most weighbridges as an economical alternative to budgeting for a complete new weighbridge to cope with the ever increasing length of transport vehicles.
