Accuweigh are the distributors for PM Onboard, a manufacturer of onboard truck weighing systems. Accuweigh’s Brisbane branch has recently supplied onboard scales to a large grain handling company on the Darling Downs to allow a truck to weigh shipping containers.
The onboard shipping container scales accurately monitor the loading of grain into shipping containers as it is augured out of storage silos. After filling to the required weight, the truck is then driven a few kilometres to a weighbridge for legal weight verification before despatch to a transport company for shipping to clients.
Accuweigh onboard shipping container scales improves loading efficiency by minimising underloading and overloading of the shipping container that necessitates return trips to the storage silos to add or remove product to ensure optimum container weights are achieved.
PM’s onboard truck load cells are mounted on the truck chassis/sub-frame and twistlock assemblies are then bolted to the top of the load cell to receive the shipping containers which are then locked into place to provide an accurate and durable mobile weighing system.
