Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) today announced that its VPG On-Board Weighing division has unveiled a new video that illustrates the many features and capabilities of the Tuffer™ wheel loader scale. Manufactured and refined for more than 30 years by Evergreen Weigh (now a brand of VPG), Tuffer is a hydraulic-based weigh-in-motion scale system that provides 1% accuracy without any interruption of normal loading procedures, and can be installed on all makes and models of loaders.
The video explores how retrofitting equipment with Tuffer can increase efficiency and profitability in a variety of operations, including quarries, mining sites, docks, railcar loading sites, solid waste transfer stations, and more. With Tuffer, users ensure loading to the maximum legal weight at the point of loading, eliminating overweight fines and commercial scale fees as well as check weighing and reloading. In addition, the loading scale allows users to haul more tons per trip and prevent hauling tonnage in excess of contracted weights.
Known by its users to offer the best value of any loader scale available, Tuffer’s ease of operation allows loader operators to quickly utilize its features to efficiently perform a wide range of tasks. The online video explores features such as last bucket tip-off; target weight loading; reweigh capabilities; multiple calibration storage; and an optional in-cab tape printer.
