Mining and industrial operations are some of the applications where truck scales, specifically on board scales, are effectively used. In most cases, these truck scale systems are used on the surface mine haul vehicles and underground mine haul machineries or trucks. The working of these truck and mining scales involve a weigh-in-motion scale system that is fitted on the wheel loaders while a weight indicator is usually fitted in the unit's cab.
Technological enhancements have made it possible for the enhancement of the weight indicator in a way that enables the determination of the maximum weight targets. The truck scales are controlled by special data collection software that provide specific details about weight. The computerized operations of these mining scales contribute significantly towards the speed of processes, the element of accuracy, and general effectiveness.
Another important advantage of the onboard loader scales in factory and mining purposes is the ability to increase the volume of work by loading and hauling of the trucks more because of the factor of accuracy in weight regulation. The technological advancements also make it possible to optimize load cycles hence increasing the rate of production.
Another related benefit is the management of costs through significant savings on fuel, maintenance, and labor. These highly enhanced onboard loader scale systems also contribute towards the reduction of traffic at the factory or the quarry, which also reduces the possibility of risks associated with heavy traffic.
