Whether you are weighing ore, slabs of metal, iron pellets or copper anodes, METTLER TOLEDO provides innovative and reliable heavy-duty solutions.

Steel and concrete deck weighbridges

We offer a complete line of vehicle scale products, accessories and services. Truck scales are available with steel deck and concrete deck weighbridges designed for applications that range from light commercial to extreme heavy-duty. Scales are available for weighing both trucks and rail cars, and conversion kits are available to retrofit existing truck scales and rail / scales with the latest weighing technology.

Load cell technology

POWERCELL® brand load cells have stood up to the most extreme forces of nature in truck and rail scales for more than 20 years. POWERCELL PDX load cells have been designed to remove the most common causes of vehicle scale failure. This provides a new level of reliability that is enhanced with internal predictive diagnostics to keep you continuously informed about your scale’s performance. POWERCELL PDX is designed to be used in virtually any environment to provide you with unmatched performance and industry leading total cost of ownership.

Over-the-road truck scales

Scales in this category are designed for trucks that are used in normal highway transportation. The modular design of these products allow for customisation to suit your exact needs. We offer a wide range of steel and concrete deck designs that use our POWERCELL PDX load cell technology to provide proven performance and exceptional durability.

Off-road weighbridges

Scales in this category are designed for large trucks that are typically used in off-road applications where loads can range from 50t to 500t. The flexible design of these products allow for customisation to suit your exact needs. The steel deck designs that use our POWERCELL PDX load cell technology provide proven performance and unmatched reliability.

Combination truck and rail scales

Combination truck and rail scales provide one scale capable of weighing both types of vehicles. A section of rail is used to weigh rail cars, and an integral concrete deck forms the weighbridge for weighing trucks. POWERCELL load cells combine proven performance with exceptional durability.

Conversions kits for truck and rail scales

Conversion kits are available for retrofitting existing truck and rail scales with the latest electronic weighing technology. These easy-to-install kits can be used to install POWERCELL PDX load cells in place of high-maintenance lever systems, analog load cells, and hydraulic load cells. Kits are also available to update previous generations of POWERCELL to the latest technology.
