Weighwell Engineering Ltd were the first company to provide portable train weighing systems. Today with over 28 years experience and knowledge we continue to be the industry leaders with 100’s of systems worldwide. The portable Single Axle Train Weighing System is x1 PTW unit and weighs the rail vehicles statically (axle by axle). This provides excellent accuracy and unrivalled flexibility.

Portable Train Weigher for Single Axle Weighing

The Portable Train Weigher for Single Axle Weighing can be carried by two people to any location and installed very quickly. Due to its portability and ease of installation, the single axle portable rail scale can weigh on multiple lines or positions. Once installed, the portable rail scale gives the rail engineer the weight data for individual wheels, axles, bogies and railcars to establish if weight distribution is even. The Single Axle Train Weighing System is an ideal solution for providing individual wheel weight data and highlighting possible weight issues for both locomotives and passenger railcars. An imbalance in weight could cause increased wear to the rail vehicle components and lead to issues in loading symmetry.
