|Western manufactures forklift scales that serve several industries and handling systems.|
|A forklift scale can save time and money by turning weighing into a one-step operation. Because the scale is built into the forklift truck’s carriage, you get an accurate weight reading simply by lifting a pallet. |
It eliminates the need to move pallets onto a platform scale, weigh them, and then remove the pallets afterward. The forklift driver can control all weighing operations from a scale terminal mounted in the cab.
Communication between the scale and terminal is completely wireless, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
|Our scale carriage features two metal plates coupled together by application-designed weight sensors. This design has no flexures, hydraulics or springs that can affect weighing while the mast is tilted. |
These sensors electronically measure the load on the forks and convey this information to an embedded indicator. The entire carriage assembly is primed and finished with high grade powder paint.
|The scale is attached to the existing forklift carriage and uses the forklift’s stock forks. If needed, the scale and instrument system can be moved to another truck in minutes. |
It determines the load weight by directly sensing the weight of the load supported by the forks. The load weight is converted to a digital signal and is numerically displayed at the indicator. Accuracy & precision are excellent, regardless of the operation and condition of the forklift scale.
