After many unsuccessful attempts at wheel pad weighing and axle weighing Ransomes Jacobsen wanted a more stable and accurate way of measuring weights for their large, grass cutting equipment.
This is particularly relevant when this grass cutting equipment is on some of the world’s most luxurious and expensive golf courses.
Stephen Atkins, their project engineer, chose STC Solutions Ltd to look at the project and the solution we came up with was to provide 2 x weights and measures approved platforms which could be sunk into the ground, both linked to one Cardinal Indicator.
The platform manufacturer was given strict instructions to create a rugged platform which would be capable of handling up to 6 tonnes of strength but at the same time with a weighing capacity of 3 tonnes to display 1 kg.
The customer wanted the option of weighing on one or both platform scales, with the indicator being able to display weights from one or both and then to offer a print out facility so that each weighing had a timed date and code if necessary.
Stephen Atkins said that he was delighted with the installation and that it had provided stable measurements and accurate results time after time.
