Accuweigh ’s QWM branch recently commissioned an in-motion weighbridge to ensure that Australian Defence Force vehicles are compliant with legal axle weight loadings when driven on public roads.  This In-motion Weighbridge was installed at the Amberley Air Force base near Ipswich, Queensland.  

Accuweigh’s Drive’n’Weigh 8000 in-motion axle weighbridges accurately attain individual axle weights while the vehicle is driven slowly across the weighbridge deck without stopping.    

With appropriate length approaches, these in-motion weighbridges can be certified for trade use for generating gross vehicle weight tickets.  

The in-motion weighbridge installed for the ADF measures 4 metres wide by 1 metre long with an axle weighing capacity of 40,000 kg and is installed in a shallow pit.  

Suitable for unmanned weighing operation, the driver enters the vehicle details using the integrated alpha-numeric keyboard and then drives the vehicle slowly over the weighbridge deck to attain axle weights.  

The driver returns to the console and removes the printed ticket listing all individual axle weights plus the total vehicle mass. The weight ticket is then kept in the vehicle for the duration of the current trip.  

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company with eight branches across mainland states providing complete after sales service and support on in-motion axle scales, weighbridges and all types of onboard vehicle weighing systems.
