Effective stock control has never been so important given the challenges businesses face in today’s economic climate. To help make the most efficient use of stock, time and machinery, RDS Technology will be exhibiting its extensive range of on-board weighing instruments at BAUMA 2010 in Munich, emphasising the gains in productivity that can be achieved by investing in such technology.
Benefitting from innovative enhancements to the weighing algorithm for static and dynamic weighing modes, the Loadmaster i range of on-board weighing scales for large wheeled loaders offers effective management of weighing data. The Loadmaster 8000i has an integral SD card port for the fast and efficient transfer of data between loader and weighbridge or office PC and enables pre-registered customer reference data to be uploaded directly to the instrument.
RDS will also be exhibiting the trade-approved Loadmaster 9000i with European MID weights and Measures approval. Fitted to a wheeled loading shovel, this on-board weighing scale effectively transforms the loader into a mobile weighbridge which conforms to class Y(a) and Y(b) levels of accuracy. This approval is valid across the EU and other associated states meaning that any approval carried out in the UK for example is valid for commercial use in another EU country e.g France or Germany.
For further bespoke data management options, the Loadmaster 9000i DMM features an extended data-handling module. This has been specially designed with the integral SD card port central to the system. Up to six separate reference fields for each truck loading cycle can be stored in a comprehensive database for detailed record keeping. The details of each field can be uploaded to the instrument from the SD card or programmed onto the card directly through the instrument. The card exports the weighing data into an Excel compatible file, ready for use with company invoice and record systems. Such product traceability makes it ideal for material handling applications in demolition operations, recycling plants and other potentially harmful or toxic areas.
Also benefitting from enhancements to the weighing software is the new generation Loadlog 500+ for small loaders and skid-steers. This instrument is cost-effective, easy to use and the new software developments allow for increased accuracy and consistency of bucket and total load results. This compensates for the effect of external influences on the system, such as engine/lift speed.
