Camaweigh Logistic Scales
Logistic scales are a type of special scale which is used to check whether the good and products being loaded to a transport vehicle are over the load capacity. Generally they are used as safety devices by different transport companies like shipping lines. It is very important to not overload the transporting vehicles because it can cause accidents.
Now these types of scales are weighing scales which are different from the ordinary scales being used by most industries. These special weighing scales are weighing equipment which are used for only specified purposes and can also be used for general weighing. Special weighing scales have added features and capabilities than just weighing. These weighing devices were developed industries which have the need for specialized weighing equipment. Designing and constructing special weighing scales in any field of industry requires expert knowledge. Only a few manufacturers are able to produce high quality solutions for the needs and requirement of modern process systems. Camaweigh is a company which has experts capable of assisting companies and developing equipment they need. Camaweigh’s line of special weighing scales is created with quality and accuracy in mind. The special scales are digital and have high accuracy ratings. This is because these special scales also make use of load cells which are their primary device for weighing.
Importance of Logistics Weighing
Logistic scales are capable doing much more than just determining the weight of an object. This type of special scale can be used in determining the size and weight of an incoming or outgoing parcel by just putting them on the logistics scale. This possible because of its integrated measuring system which uses laser distance sensors or light grids. Logistic scales have an interface which is capable of transferring the data gathered to the ERP system.
Logistics companies use logistic scales to optimize their picking and placing processes. Transportation companies must be able to transport payloads efficiently, without compromising the safety of the transporting vehicle or truck. Camaweigh offers logistics scales which make sure that shipping vehicles are filled to a safe loading capacity.
Applications of Logistics Scales
Logistics weighing scales enhance the logistics and transportation companies by making their systems more efficient and safe. Because of this, these special scales are applied to different industries.
Trains and Railway Systems
Weight is very critical factor to the safety in the railway and train industry. Trains are still being used today as a way of transporting not just people, but also packages and parcels to different places. Logistic weighing scales are used to monitor the products being delivered to avoid penalties from overloading
Logistic weighing scales help in making sure that the baggage and crates being loaded on the aircraft is weighed accurately and efficiently. Aircraft transportation might be the most dangerous to overload since it can lead to the plane running out of fuel due to the excess weight it is carrying. This is also the reason by every passenger is only given a limited baggage weight which they are allowed to load on the aircraft.
Road Transportation Systems
Another common way of transporting goods and services is through the use of vehicles and trucks. The use vehicles and trucks to transport goods and products is the most basic and commonly used system. Special scales like logistics scales can greatly help to maintain the between fuel and efficiency of their operation. Just like with aircraft transportation, the fuel consumption of vehicles and truck are greatly affected by the weight of the load they are transporting. The more weight they are carrying, the mort fuel the engine consumes compared to when they are only transporting light.
