Designed to weigh individual axle groups, axle weigher decks are typically 4m long by 3m wide and are installed in a pit so the deck is at ground level. The decks tend to be of a lower profile than a full-length weighbridge, and require less excavation and foundation works
To record weights for each axle group on a static axle weigher, the truck is driven across the weigher, stopping in the correct position to weigh each axle group. For example, to capture each axle group of a B-double HGV, the vehicle needs to stop in four positions.
As weighing accuracy is affected by the approach to and departure from the axle weigher, a flat and level approach and departure area are required. This enables the vehicle to remain in the same plane at any given time during the weighing process. Therefore, for weighing measurement accuracy the quality of the entry and exit approaches must be exceptional (to within 0.25 degrees) for the entire length of the vehicle being weighed.
Static axle weighers are well suited to the weighing of all types of heavy goods vehicles in operations with moderate throughputs.
Unlike imported products, AccuWeigh’s superior quality, Australian-made axle weighers are custom built to meet customer requirements and are engineered to suit the Australian duty cycle and demands of Australian heavy goods vehicle fleet. This means that they are not easily subject to metal fatigue and weld fractures, which significantly reduces the devices working life.
