Our award winning product the Portable Train Weigher (PTW) has changed the concept of train weighing. Our PTW with its unique, portable and mobile design can be installed in any gauge of track and virtually any rail type in a matter of minutes without the need for expensive changes to the track or foundations. Our equipment has been proven to lead to beneficial time and cost savings.
Our PTW allows for static train weighing (from a single axle up to full car weighing) or in-motion train weighing in a reliable, accurate and convenient manner. Our static weighing systems operate with wireless technology (Connectweigh™) and are perfectly suited to train maintenance depots and the manufacture/overhaul of rolling stock.
Our static systems can be used to weigh of a variety of rolling stock (such as high speed trains and tram vehicles) and are an integral component for train manufacture/overhaul programs. Our robust in-motion train weighing systems are efficient “check weighers” and are used to weigh a variety of rail freight aggregate within quarries and loading depots.
