brings greater benifits to the Materials Handling Industry.
Users of the hydraulic on-truck weighing system from specialist manufacturer Timotex will gain from a range of enhanced features and the close attention paid by the company to ease of operation for the driver.
The new unit builds on the success of the company in the UK and Europe. It continues to provide a degree of accuracy and repeatability that cannot be achieved by any comparable hydraulic weighing scale.
The most immediately visible difference with this scale compared with its predecessors is the design of the Supaweigh control case. Its robust appearance belies its cast aluminium construction, styled for maximum strength and durability.
Large and easy to use control buttons on the face of the cab-mounted display unit have been designed and positioned to make operation simple. Moreover, the scale can be supplied with software options to display screen prompts and information in a choice of languages. This is an important feature, which is set to enable the company to build on recent successes in the European marketplace.
Timotex has also given detailed consideration to the ergonomics of operation. The operator can often, for example, select the most suitable location for the Supaweigh display unit to suit the precise requirements of his materials handling operation. This versatility is enhanced by scale options which include a thermal or dot-matrix printer, alpha-numeric keypad and computer link.
As an alternative, a Loadchecker model of the scale has been developed specifically for the large fleet operator having numerous drivers. As with the Supaweigh, the Loadchecker can also be fitted to a wide range of lift-trucks including counterbalance, reach, powered pedestrian, side loaders and container handlers.
“Because we have always focused on this highly specialised sector of the materials handling industry, we have been able to direct all our attention to producing the most reliable, accurate and user-friendly system on the market,” comments Managing Director Brian Millar. “The Supaweigh XL represents the latest in the Timotex series of lift-truck weighing systems to benefit from this emphasis,” he adds. “The scale will improve materials handling efficiency further still for all users of fork-lift trucks”, he concludes.
Timotex offers an extensive range of mobile weighing solutions.
The full range comprises all known methods of load measurement for forklift trucks, electric pallet trucks, stackers and hand pallet trucks. Static warehouse scales are also available.
