METTLER TOLEDO Australia offers numerous ways to improve your weighbridge, reduce repair costs and protect your revenue. We are specialists in;

  • Weighing system upgrades
  • Weighbridge Health Checks

Weighing system upgrade

We can convert many types of weighbridges and vehicle scales to use a new state-of-the-art POWERCELL PDX weighing system. This makes the weighbridge more accurate and reliable, while extending its operational life.

Vehicle Scale Health Check

A Vehicle Scale Health Check includes a detailed inspection of your weighbridge with optional performance testing beyond the basic calibration. This gives you a clear picture of how you can improve and protect your weighbridge.

Expert calibration

Our technicians have extensive training to improve the weighing performance of any weighbridge and vehicle scale. In many cases, we can calibrate a competitor's weighbridge to a higher accuracy than the manufacturer's own service teams.
