Avery Weigh-Tronix, LLC recently announced that their FLSC Forklift Scale System, introduced in 2008, has now received legal-for-trade certification in Canada. The FLSC is designed to provide a rugged, responsive weighing solution which is ideal for industrial and commercial applications, including fast-paced recycling centre, warehouse, and freight terminal environments. A patented scale carriage design features two metal plates, paired with Avery Weigh-Tronix’s Weigh Bar electronic weight sensors, for superb accuracy and high repeatability. This design has no flexures, hydraulics or springs, ensuring dependable operation, even while the forklift mast is tilted. The FLSC allows operators to capture weight data quickly and easily en route – without extra steps, stops or route changes required.
This Curbside Weighing System (CWS) utilizes an Avery Weigh-Tronix Weigh Bar weight sensor inserted between the collection truck and the tipper. The system allows recyclables to be weighed in-motion without adding time to the lifting process. Units offer inherent strength and overload protection while providing high accuracy and reliability, and are compatible with RFID technology for advanced tracking of recyclables.
FLSC and QTLTSC forklift scale systems are the latest additions to this company’s long line of robust weighing solutions. Each has a patented scale carriage design featuring two metal plates paired with Avery Weigh Bar electronic weight sensors for high accuracy and repeatability. This design has no flexures, hydraulics or springs, ensuring reliable operation even while a forklift mast is tilted. These legal-for-trade certified systems allow operators to capture weight data quickly and easily en route – without extra steps, stops or route changes required. The FLSC, designed for use with Class II forklifts and certified for weighing loads of up to 5,000 pounds, offers rugged, responsive operation – along with a very large “Clear View” vision window that allows scale operators to monitor fork tips at all times. The FLSC also offers a wireless scale carriage option, ideal for triple-mast forklifts, stock pickers, or environments where cabling may be easily damaged. The QTLTSC is designed as a robust solution for Class III and Class IV forklifts and features a QuickTach scale carriage that attaches simply to an existing forklift carriage, facilitating efficient weighing in new and retrofit applications. Both of these systems are specially manufactured to withstand jolts and frequent, heavy loads common in warehouse, plant and recycling and waste facility environments.
This Curbside Weighing System (CWS) utilizes Avery Weigh-Tronix equipment to offer a simple, sophisticated weighing solution for recycling collection and documentation. An Avery Weigh-Tronix Weigh Bar weight sensor is inserted between the collection truck and the tipper, allowing recyclables to be weighed in-motion without adding time to the lifting process. This robust Weigh Bar offers inherent strength and overload protection while providing high accuracy and reliability. The CWS is paired with a RFID system to associate the amount of materials recycled with the contributing resident, facilitating easy tracking of recyclables. The system uses its wireless antenna to read an RFID tag, which is placed on each collection tote and used to identify the recycler. This tag data and the net weight of the collected recyclables are then transferred to the CWS’s multi-faceted, easily programmable Simulcast WI-130 Indicator. Once the collection truck arrives at the recycling centre, the indicator sends the collected data via radio frequency to the centre’s computers, allowing the information to be easily downloaded without inconveniencing the hauler.
