Advanced Payload Management Solutions For Mining Companies

Mining is an industry that demands highly-accurate and efficient means to measure the weight and value of payloads (which are essentially the loads of mineral and extracted resources later sold and distributed.) While there are numerous systems that facilitate the payload management process, new and cutting-edge systems are always taking the industry-standard to the next level. Below we shed light on three advanced payload management solutions that mining companies are adopting for greater efficiency, throughput, and overall profit.

On Board Truck Scales

1.Load Scanner Systems

Developed as an affordable alternative to heavy-duty truck scales, the volumetric load scanner offers a cost-effective solution to calculate load volumes in an accurate and efficient manner.

With the complete truckload volume scanner, operators can view high definition 3D images of their truckloads, but that is not all. The load scanner is integrated with an advanced software platform – Payload Pro Operating System. Well-matched on almost all types of computers and mobile devices, operators can leverage the tools and capabilities of Payload Pro to check, track, and manage load scan data.

Accurate Load Scanning Calculations

In various operations where a load’s cubic volume is the target metric, the direct measurement produced by the truck bed load scanner delivers an accurate and reliable measurement that you can use to then calculate the payloads’ weight. Unlike other forms of payload management and valuation, the load scanner system minimizes doubts and variables in compaction, load variation, and moisture content. This Load Scanner system provides accurate volume calculations, and eliminates old school methods like counting truckloads or simply guessing.

Flexible & Durable Load Scanner

Load ScanningThe payload volume scanner is built to the highest standards among load volume scanner system. It is proven to endure years of use in mining, construction, and other rugged production operations. The load scanner can be installed in any adequate haul road, dedicated local scanning site, or access driving. Although truck load volume scanner is hard-mounted, it can be reinstalled as needed with many options available.

2. On-board Truck Scales

On-board truck scales assists a variety of businesses and mining operations to weigh loads efficiently while saving time. Since on-board scales can weigh loads straight from the vehicle or piece of the equipment, users can reduce downtime by eliminating redundant steps in the payload management process.  Mining truck

On-board scales are applicable for many facets of heavy-duty and industrial weighing. The resource extraction and mining operations utilize on-board scales on a variety of vehicles, like the articulated trucks, mobile crushers, backhoes, and rail cars, to name a few. These on-board scales offers capabilities to integrate weight systems on many different pieces of equipment. Spanning from conveyor belt scales to onboard rail scales.

In addition to specialized mining applications, wheel loader and excavator on-board scales help to better weigh transit loads and leverage greater throughput. On-board scales also measures the total material carted per shift, load cycle times, loading accuracy and efficiency and monitors the safe loading limit. The most proliferated supplier of these systems for mining companies are the on-board truck scales by Walz Scale.

3. Rail ScalesRail Scale

Rail scale solutions are widely used in many railway operations. From agriculture, recycling, chemical and mining applications, rail scales are installed in the railroad track and weigh the rail car when it passes over the rail scale system.

Below is great example of the rail scale system by Walz Scale, and how these systems can be easily installed for convenient use time and time again.

There are multiple rail scales for various types of railcars and trains. The rail scales includes: portable rail scales, railcar axle scales, and in-motion rail scale systems. These rail scale solutions can fit any virtually any requirements.
