Achieving high accuracy from an axle weighbridge is not a simple task.
But achieving it, and then aiming for even greater accuracy, is something we always strive to do.
So to gain an Approval to Class 0.2, twice as accurate as the previous approval, is something we have worked hard for and are very proud of.
To gain that Approval, accuracy throughout the testing procedure, which involved a deadweight test to capacity and running the vehicle numerous times down the centre, the nearside and the offside of the platform, had to be within 0.1% at all times.
The Axtec Series 5000 Dynamic Axle Weighbridge was already the most accurate of its type in the world but now its Approved to twice the accuracy.

Gaining such accuracy is all down to the precision manufacturing of the weighing platform and frame, the high tolerances required of the approach concrete and the care taken with the final installation.
There is more to getting good accuracy than just connecting some load cells to an indicator however good they may be as individual components.
There is more to the installation than just preparing the correct size pit in the ground.
And there is more to the calibration than just checking the accuracy when weighing test weights.
Gaining Class 0.2 Approval shows how important it is to get every stage of manufacturing, installation and testing right. Which is why we have all those disciplines in-house and can assure the quality and accuracy of the complete installation.
Getting the installation right means customers’ can be sure they are maximising loads on every trip without overloading.
It means the system can legally be used for buying and selling product by weight.
And it means the system can be offered as a Public Weighbridge and thus contribute a revenue stream to the business.
Only Axtec have the all of the skills necessary to achieve that level of performance.
