The load pin construction concept is a simple but cost effective design, it incorporates a solution without the need for costly modifications to the lifting structure.
This is how it works:
- The side lift structure contains an engineered steel pin. The steel pin enables the side lift structure to pivot when lifting occurs, this is added with the use of check rods.
- The existing steel pin in the side lift structure is replaced without modifications, with the engineered loadpit, the loadpin has intergral strain gauge technology which will measure the resistance created by the deflection on pin when a load is applied.
- The measurement is converted into a weight reading by the Millennium incab unit, to insure accuracy a proprietry proximity switch is fitted to insure the weighing is carried out in the same position on each weighing cycle.
