A Low Profile Weighbridge was recently installed for accurately weighing air freight in South Australia. Supplied by Accuweigh’s Adelaide branch, this Low Profile Weighbridge was required for weighing airport tractors towing multiple trailers at a time.

As the weighing deck was required to be flush with the concrete hardstand for easy access by airport tractor trailers, Accuweigh’s Low Profile Weighbridge minimised civils works costs by only requiring a very shallow installation pit. Measuring nine metres long by three metres wide, this Low Profile Weighbridge was a very cost effective solution for this client’s weighing application.

Accuweigh’s Low Profile Weighbridge has a steel weighing deck supported on four heavy duty load cells of ten tonne capacity and has a weighing capacity of fifteen tonnes.  The digital weight indicator fitted to this Low Profile Weighbridge also tracks the weight of freight being loaded into each aircraft which is then printed as a hardcopy of each pallet trailer’s weight. 

The weight readings are also transmitted to a large digit remote display mounted beside the Low Profile Weighbridge for viewing by the tractor driver to be used as a guide for weight distribution in the aircraft’s cargo bays. Access to the load cells is through removable reinforced cover plates running the length of the Weighbridge deck.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest supplier of weighbridges and can provide the ideal weighing solution for all Weighbridge applications fully backed by sales and services in all mainland states.
