Overview

Weighing technology has a wide range of uses and applications, the key to which is Avery Weigh-Tronix’s Weigh Bar. Over several decades, the Weigh Bar has built a reputation for precision, reliability, and durability that no other load cell can match. See the infographic below for a closer look:

Application

PT Semen Padang, an Indonesian cement factory, makes regular cement deliveries to a nearby local port. Until recently, the company had no way of monitoring whether the returning wagons had cement left in them, which affected the ongoing efficiency of deliveries. As part of a planned process, the company needed to identify a means of accurately monitoring their deliveries, as well as identifying and repairing any faulty wagons.

The solution was the installation of one of many Avery Weigh-Tronix products, the Weighline in-motion weighing system. The Weighline allowed trains and individual wagons to be weighed as they left and reentered the site, and since they did not need to be stopped or de-coupled, there was no interruption or delay. By recording the weight of each wagon and train that left or entered the plant, the company could immediately see whether any cement had not been offloaded and then could identify the cause.
