The QWM branch of Accuweigh has recently installed unattended weighbridge terminals at the JJ Richard’s plant at Stapylton in Brisbane’s south. Unattended weighbridge terminals are fitted at each end of the weighbridge to minimise time burden drivers to enter required details into the system.

For OH&S compliance, the unattended weighbridge terminals are mounted on the driver access platforms next to the weighbridge for immediate driver access. These unattended weighbridges remove the need for the driver to access the busy roadway that operates twenty four hours a day.

The weighbridge is QWM manufactured and measures 28m long by 3m wide and is fitted with various control systems to monitor the weighing processes of the unattended weighbridge terminals, ensuring correct weight readings, including:

  • Automatic ticket printer issues a weight docket for all trucks exiting over the weighbridge
  • Dallas Tag Readers capture all relevant details before trucks enter or leave over the weighbridge 
  • External Weighbridge Remote Displays are fitted to each end of the weighbridge to display truck weights to the drivers
  • Photo Electric Switches are fitted at both ends of the weighbridge to ensure trucks are correctly positioned during the weighing processes
  • Traffic lights control truck movements over the weighbridge

Accuweigh recently merged its Brisbane south branch with QWM’s Brisbane north operation for improved operating efficiencies for both branches.
