The combined weighing station is intended to record the net weights of the 40-foot containers. As with vehicle weighing, the full container must be weighed with a first weighing and then the empty container with the second weighing. The difference gives the net weight. Due to the construction of the tipper chassis, the weighing technology is completely separated from the construction. For weighing, a weighing frame with 4 measuring cells is hydraulically lifted to decouple the container from the tipping chassis. The hydraulic lift is ensured by special synchronised cylinders and controls. The interlock with the tipping station is guaranteed. 2 tipping stations are controlled by one control.
A traffic light signals to the forklift driver that a new container can be placed. The container ID number is entered at the operating terminal. By pressing the first weighing key, the weighing frame is lifted and the gross weight is determined. The weighing frame is lowered and the Twistlook locks are manually locked by the operator. Now the operator can switch on the tilt lock and tilt the container with the "Up-Down" button. When the container is empty and back in the home position, the Twistlook locks must be released and the anti-tip device switched off. As with the initial weighing, the empty weight is determined by pressing the full locking button. When the weighing process is finished, the traffic light switches to "green" and a new cycle can begin. The weight data is displayed and made available in a data module for higher-level systems.
