The company realised that weighing could improve loading accuracy and chose the robust Avery Weigh-Tronix Forklift Truck Scale after testing seven different designs. The units were fitted to the new fleet of 29 Caterpillar trucks at the hub.
Typical weighing systems require the forklift truck driver to make repeat visits to a floor scale remote from the loading area. Like other operators, PalletFORCE estimated the weight of the pallets to avoid adding any additional step sinto its streamlined process.
The Avery Weigh-Tronix scale fits on to the truck easily without welding and enables the driver to lift, weigh, moveand record a pallet in one operation. An eye-level display guides the driver through the loading process and records the deck position of each pallet. This ensures safe and evenweight distribution.
PalletFORCE can also load the maximum number of pallets on to each trailer, helping to reduce fuel costs.
