Scales that increase productivity with adaptability

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale is an investment in productivity. This loader scale, from Position Partners, has the adaptability to go on a range of heavy vehicles around the site, enabling producers to keep their technology purchases to a minimum while increasing productivity.

In its basic form, the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale is a tool to indicate the weight lifted by the loader and loaded into the truck, hopper, pile, etc.

From there it evolves into a complete management tool with data storage, Wi-Fi and internet connections, to send the captured data anywhere in the world.

The Loadmaster loader scale was the first loader scale in Australia to gain a pattern approval allowing it to be used for trade purposes. This loader scale can help project managers overcome the following challenges:

  • Load record-keeping.

  • The “chain of responsibility” (CoR) laws.

  • Underutilisation of plant.

  • Equipment matching for productivity.

The key benefits of the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale are its ease of use and that it can be configured to be a basic scale or a fully featured load management recording tool.

{{image2-a:r-w:300}}This loader scale is also a key tool in compliance with CoR laws. So, what is CoR and how does it relate to the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale?

In short, while the drivers and operators of heavy vehicles have been the focus of road laws, breaches are often caused by the actions of others.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has introduced the CoR laws to ensure anyone – not just the driver or operator of the heavy vehicle – who has control over the transport task can be held responsible for breaches of road laws and may be legally liable.

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale can ensure operators are not overloading their vehicles, and the load record-keeping feature means they can keep track of all their loads within a certain time period.

This data is then on hand if they need to prove they have not overloaded a vehicle.

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale is adaptable enough to be installed on a range of machines, including:

  • Front end loaders of any size.

  • Telescopic handlers.

  • Forklifts.

  • Container lifters.

“We aim to make the integration between the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scales and your machine as seamless as possible,” said Chris Nussey, RDS business development manager for Position Partners.

“The Loadmaster is the best value for money loader scale on the market today. Prior to implementing the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale, project managers would be relying on the operators to manually record load data, opening up the ability to ‘fudge the figures’ and user error in relation to weights, truck cycles and what went where.

{{image3-a:r-w:300}}“Purchasing a Loadmaster is an investment in productivity. Along with the increased logging ability of jobs, to be able to recall one particular truck load, loaded in the past, say, six months, to prove no overload or just the weight loaded if an accident happened, is invaluable.”

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale has a range of features that can improve efficiency on-site:

Its user interface is extremely straightforward, which ensures new users can be trained to use these loader scales in a very short time.

The Loadmaster also improves the efficiency of operators by removing manual inputs, with GPS, barcode reader and RF tag reader. These attachments allow the operator to automatically select products, trucks and locations without touching the screen.

The Loadmaster’s integrated reverse camera improves safety on the site while improving efficiency.

“The Loadmaster also has the ability to be controlled from any computer in the world with an internet connection,” Nussey said. “The Position Partners support team is always just a ‘click’ away too.”

Position Partners can also assist with the successful and efficient implementation of new technology on-site.

“Local support is critical and with Position Partners branches in each state we are well placed to assist,” Nussey said.

“Position Partners can supply after sales support and training packages depending on customers’ requirements. From basic telephone, on-site and worldwide remote internet to the Loadmaster, ongoing support and training is not far away.”
