Weighbridge service is available from eight Accuweigh branches across mainland states. Accuweigh is Australia’s largest supplier of weighbridges and has fully trained and experienced weighbridge crews and test trucks available to comply with all weighbridge servicing needs.
Regular weighbridge servicing can significantly extend the life expectancy of the weighbridge’s most expensive components - its load cells. Most weighbridge load cells are based on the rocker pin design which allows the load cell to freely rock back and forth in line with weighbridge deck movement caused by forces generated by truck braking and acceleration on the weighbridge deck.
The degree of load cell tilt must be tightly controlled to prevent physical load cell damage caused by excessive weighbridge end-to-end movements. All weighbridges are fitted with physical end-stops to prevent excessive deck movement but these need to be adjusted seasonally to suit the expansion and contraction of the weighbridge deck.
During colder months, the weighbridge’s steel beams contract and the end clearances need to be adjusted to prevent excessive clearances. During summer, the end clearances need to be increased to cope with weighbridge expansion which otherwise would cause weighing errors caused by the weighbridge deck binding against the end stops.
