Demand for check-weighing rising in the loading bay observes RDS Technology

With the industry increasingly looking for a rapid turnaround of stock and with increased attention being paid to pallet weights, the requirement for check-weighing on a forklift truck at Goods In and Out sites has risen dramatically over recent years, reports RDS Technology.

The firm continues: "Systems such as the Liftlog 100+ on-board weighing system from RDS Technology have proven a great success with companies looking to run loading and unloading operations in a more efficient manner and ensure the accuracy of load and pallet weights." Hydraulic weighing options are said to be a user-friendly and affordable method of providing a guide to weight.

Although they lack the high level of accuracy offered by load cell based systems, their cost-effectiveness makes hydraulic weighing a solution for applications where a guide to weight is needed or weight limits are to be adhered to. This permits a fast and reliable verification of a pre-stated weight on the pallet and avoids discrepancies. Check-weighing on the forklift also reduces timeconsuming and inefficient vehicle movements to a floormounted platform scale in a remote part of the warehouse or loading area, reducing jams and increasing site safety.

Onboard weighing systems can be fitted to new and used vehicles with minimal machine downtime and comes with full back up from specialist RDS distributors.
