In the mining industry, the accuracy of weight data is a critical aspect and an indication of effective cost control, operational efficiency, regulatory compliance, and revenue management.
Today there are various payload management solutions designed for mining, spanning from weighbridge truck scales, mine loadout scales through to 3D volumetric load scanning – all designed to optimize payload efficiency within the mining industry.
And, with modern demands to streamline payload efficiencies, both high level accuracy and reliability have welcomely become a prerequisite and not an option. Advancements in loadcell manufacturing and precision scanning have assisted reputable mining scale manufactures to encompass the new technologies and integrate this into their proven mining scales and volumetric scanners, making them highly accurate and dependable.
One such company is Trakblaze, and today boasts having the world’s toughest mining truck scale. The Force 2&4 mining truck scale can be configured to weigh any make and model of mining haul truck, either statically or in motion up to an unbeatable 12kph (7.5mph); site dependant. In addition, Trakblaze also offers a Truck Volumetric Scanner (TVS) which can also integrate with the Force 2&4 weigh in motion scales, forging the ultimate data collection system where volumetric and weigh in motion systems work collaboratively.
And for mining sites with rail cars/wagons, Trakblaze has the Infinity LS train weighing system for mine load outs, including load outs requiring weighing in a curved track! There are certainly not many, (if any) train weighing scales that can attest to proven industry results in a curved track as the Infinity LS. This industry proven load out weighing solution is highly accurate and provides the operator with invaluable – axle, bogie and total car/wagon weight data in real time.
