Our customer needed a Weight Declaration certificate for their 51 tonne CAT AD60 Truck to comply with export requirements. The truck needed an ad hoc weighing solution that is easy to assemble and then pack away.
1. Equipment setup
To weigh the 51 tonne CAT AD60 Truck, we created two weighing platforms using:
two 20-feet bolsters
two sets of Conweigh equipment
Each platform can weigh up to 40 tonnes.
We used two cranes to lift the AD60 truck onto the platforms—one axle per platform—to obtain the axle weights.
3. Weight capture
Within seconds, each Conweigh equipment set transmitted accurate weight readings of 53.1 tonnes and the Conweigh software instantly generated the truck’s Weight Declaration certificate on the spot.
Weighing whenever, wherever
The entire weighing job, from the time the 20-feet bolsters arrived onsite, to setting up the platforms, to lifting the truck, and issuing the Weight Declaration took only 60 mins. After the weigh, all involved equipment were ready to be disassembled and packed away.
Another successful heavy machinery weighing with no injuries, no damages, and no delays.
