The Engineers at Durmazlar’s Maintenance Depot, Turkey required a train weighing system that must be able to measure individual wheel weights of loco’s and units with various axle centres, be fully portable, extremely accurate and lend itself to weigh anything from two to six axles at a time depending on the loco or unit configuration.
The Advanced Rail Weight Engineering (ARWE) System, designed and installed by Trainweigh is providing valuable and accurate weighing data at Freightliner Engineering Depot in Hunslet, Leeds.
The AX-800 was put to use by the Purple line Engineers to show potential weight imbalance across the bogies and to ascertain gross weights of the fleet. The AX-300 is used as a dynamic portable unit for spot checks on the fleet.
The Indonesian Government required a train weigher that was portable, accurate and had to be able to be both static & and dynamic operations. The AX-300 performs both tasks in their depot and in the field.
The AX-400 performs the task of accurately attaining the weight of the fleet. The need to be certain of a correct gross weight in new & refurbished units is paramount. The AX-300 is used as a portable static unit for use in satellite depots.
There is a need on-site to weigh units statically & dynamically. The AX-300 equipped with DPS software enables the engineer to find potential weight imbalances across the unit.
Used for both Static and Dynamic weighing for the engineers to check distribution of weights on the wheels and axles. If the loading's are slightly out, they are adjusted, by the engineers. If the loading's are significantly different, the coaches are sent into the workshops for further analysis.
Portable or Mobile train weighing, was a Swedish invention, Patented in 1973. This took the form of a 4 load cell platform that weighed the wagons on the wheel flange and not the wheel tyre. As the wagon went along the rails, a built in ramp simply lifted the flange and wheel and guided the flange onto..
