FASSI main dealer Central Crane Technicians invest in a state of the art weighbridge for Whole Vehicle Type Approval

The quality, accuracy and convenience of having its own dynamic axle weighbridge is making a bespoke lorry loader specialist and body builder in Chesterfield, Derbyshire more efficient, saving it time and money, and ensuring every vehicle it builds is compliant for VCA approval. In addition, as the weighbridge is accurate to within +/- 0.25 per cent, it has been verified by Trading Standards for public use, so it has another important role – as an extra revenue stream.

Designing and building bespoke, lorry loader bodies for plant or platform vehicles ranging from 3.5 to 32 tonnes, Central Truck Bodies and Central Crane Technicians need to accurately weigh every vehicle for validation to customers. Having their own weighbridge means weights can be constantly monitored during the construction process.

The drive-over dynamic axle weighbridge is installed flush with the ground, and takes just 40 seconds to automatically weigh individual axle weights and gross vehicle weight as the vehicle drives over it. It is the most accurate of its type in the world, and the only one of its kind in Derbyshire. It was supplied and installed by Axtec, the specialists in axle weighing technology.
