Press Releases

Truck scales are special equipment designed to measure the weight of vehicles. Their use can be very useful for drivers and fleet owners, as it allows them to control the load on the vehicle and comply with safety requirements and road regulations. However, in order to use truck scales correctly, you need to know several important aspects and follow certain recommendations.

The first thing you need to do before entering the truck scale is to check the condition of the car. Make sure your fog lights, brake lights and turn signals are working properly and your license plates are legible. It is also necessary to check the presence of an emergency sign and a fire extinguisher in the car. These security measures are mandatory and will help you avoid fines and problems with law enforcement.

The second important point is the correct strategy for weighing the car. The driver should approach the scale slowly and stop at platform level. Immediately after stopping, it is necessary to carefully distribute the load on all wheels - this will allow you to obtain accurate measurements. It is not recommended to move from the scale during weighing.

Finally, after completing the weighing, the driver must leave the platform clean and tidy. Remove any objects or debris to make the weighing process more efficient and prevent damage to infrastructure.

Overall, proper use of vehicle scales will help you not only comply with necessary regulations and requirements, but also maintain the safety of your vehicle and other road users. Follow our tips and tricks to use your truck scales efficiently and safely!

Choosing a Truck Scale: Factors to Consider

There are a number of important factors to consider before purchasing a truck scale. Choosing the right scale will not only help you regularly monitor your vehicle's weight, but will also ensure safe and accurate measurements. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a truck scale:

  1. Maximum Load Capacity: Determine the maximum weight that the weighing equipment can support. Please note that weight includes not only the vehicle, but also cargo, passengers and other items. Choose a scale that can handle the weight of your vehicle.
  2. Measurement accuracy: When purchasing scales, pay attention to their measurement accuracy. The higher the accuracy, the more accurate the measurement results will be. This is important, especially if you need to accurately determine the weight of the load.
  3. Deck Dimensions: Consider the size of the scale bed as it will need to be large enough for your vehicle. Consider the suspension height, width and length of the vehicle when choosing a scale.
  4. Reliability and durability: Study the reviews and reputation of the manufacturer to ensure the reliability and durability of the selected scales. Find out about the warranty and service provided by the manufacturer.
  5. Ease of use: Enjoy the ease of use of the scale. Choose a model with simple and intuitive functions, a convenient display and the ability to quickly calibrate.

Remember that choosing the right truck scale will allow you to use your weighing equipment effectively, control the weight of your vehicle, and ensure safety on the road. Buy a scale that meets your needs and will serve you for many years.

Specifications and capabilities

1. Load capacity - indicates the maximum weight that can be measured by the weighing system. It is important to choose a truck scale with a capacity that matches the expected loads.

2. Accuracy of measurements - the quality of truck scales depends on the accuracy of their measurements. The higher the accuracy, the more reliable the weighing results will be. It is important to choose scales with high accuracy to obtain reliable data.

3. Deck Sizes – Different truck scales have different bed sizes to suit different types of vehicles. It is necessary to consider the dimensions of the scale platform and compare them with the dimensions of the vehicle to ensure correct positioning when weighing.

4. Automatic Weighing System - Some truck scales are equipped with an automatic weighing system that allows you to obtain the measurement results without operator intervention. These scales are usually faster and easier to use.

5. Additional Features - Some truck scales may have additional features such as storing measurement results, connecting to a computer, or printing reports. These functions can be useful when keeping records of weighings or processing data.

When choosing a vehicle scale, these technical characteristics and capabilities must be taken into account to ensure efficient and reliable use of the weighing system. It is also important to contact the manufacturer or consultant for further information and advice on selecting the appropriate scales.

Benefits of using truck scales

1. Measurement accuracy. Vehicle scales provide accurate and reliable vehicle weight measurements. This allows you to take into account all influencing factors, such as cargo, fuel and other materials, which in turn allows you to optimize fuel and freight costs.

2. Load control. The use of vehicle scales allows you to control the load on the vehicle, which leads to increased road safety. Exceeding the permissible load can lead to damage to the vehicle, the road and an emergency situation.

3. Compliance with regulations. Vehicle scales allow you to check whether a vehicle meets the standards and weight limits established by law. This is especially important for trucks, which are subject to additional load capacity requirements and restrictions.

4. Economic benefits. Using truck scales helps reduce fuel and vehicle maintenance costs. Thanks to load control and compliance with weight standards, penalties and problems with vehicles can be avoided.

Ultimately, vehicle scales provide precise control over vehicle weight, resulting in improved road safety, lower operating costs and compliance with legal regulations.
