In the weighing industry, many types of weighing instruments are used, from the smallest to the largest. Depending on what's being weighed, there's specific weighing equipment. Trucks, trailer trucks, and other large loads require special weighing equipment.
For vehicle weighing Camaweigh offers:
Dynamic axle weighing scales are frequently used in the industry. Dynamic axle weighing scales measure the weight of each truck wheel and axle.
All of these types measure vehicle weight at each axle, but in different ways. Dynamic and static axle weighing scales exist. Static axle scales weigh a stationary axle. On major roads and skyways, trucks are weighed on static axle scales before moving forward. Each road has a weight limit. If a truck uses a road for small vehicles, the road may break. Dynamic scales measure the vehicle's weight as it passes. Dynamic scales are more efficient and save time than static scales.
The three types of dynamic axle weighing scales all weigh based on the number of axles. Single axle scales weigh each vehicle axle separately. If a vehicle or truck has three-wheel axles, each will be weighed individually. The scale shows three-axle weights. The indicator will show more axle weight if the vehicle has more than three wheels.
Dual axle scales can weigh two wheels at once. Some truck designs group two or three axles. In the weighing industry, trailer trucks are most common; they have a steer axle, drive axle, and trailer axle. The steer axle is turned by the truck's steering wheel. The drive axle moves the truck and loads forward. Axle turns trailer wheels. Depending on trailer length, it may have multiple axles. A trailer axle can have more than two wheels or multiple axles per group. When a two-wheel axle passes through the scale, it's read as a single axle, not two. The three-axle scale works similarly. The three-axle scale can weigh three grouped wheel axles. They're all one axle weight.
