Over the past five years, METTLER TOLEDO has collected data from nearly 6,000 sites across major industries including more than 35,000 truck scales/weighbridges worldwide to create Technology Comparison Reports (TCRs) that can help you compare the performance of your truck scale/weighbridge to others in your industry.
Technology Comparison Reports use real-life data to cover the following areas:
Throughput and application statistics
When considering the purchase of a new truck scale/weighbridge, there are many factors that come in to play. Elements such as trucks per day, material being weighed, maximum scale length and local climate all influence the product that will be best for your operation.
Hidden scale costs
A weighbridge is an investment that should last for 20+ years of heavy-duty use. However, selecting the wrong technology can lead to significant annual repair costs. Refer to your respective industry TCR to see which technology will save you money over the life of the scale. Additionally, consistent inspection and preventative maintenance procedures will reduce the cost of ownership and extend the scale's life.
Load cell replacement statistics
TCR load cell replacement statistics show that, on average, owners of analog truck scales replace 5Xs more load cells than owners of POWERCELL PDX truck scales over the life of the equipment. See how POWERCELL PDX performs compared to other load cells.
Are you giving away product with every truckload? Even the smallest inaccuracies can add up over time. Choosing the right load cell technology can limit your exposure to product giveaway and/or poor inventory control.
