Truck scale equipped with three-dimensional center of gravity measurement function

Support safe driving of truck

Yamato’ s truck scales was equipped, in addition to the overall weight scaling function, with the two-dimensional center of gravity measurement function to weigh the axle, wheel, and uneven loads to support safe driving. The scale had served the specialized vehicle manufacturing industry and transport industry until some users pointed out that the two-dimensional center of gravity measurement may not be sufficient. This came from the fact that a truck with higher center of gravity has a dramatically higher risk of rollover at curves even it is two-dimensionally balanced.

4Sトラックスケール As it coincided with the series of container trailerrollover accidents, which became a media featured social problem and led to the consideration of a bill to prevent rollover accidents, we at Yamato have decided to initiate the development of technology to measure the height of the center of gravity. Today, we are pleased to inform that we have successfully developed the center of gravity height measurement technology and delivered a truck scale equipped with three-dimensional center of gravity measurement function, a combination of the original two-dimensional measurement and height measurement, to Nippon Kaiji Kentei Kyokai (NKKK).

 

4Sトラックスケール

NKKK has been working on the problem of the container trailers’ rollover accidents since before, but in response to the escalating social concerns over rollover accidents, the organization recently consulted with us in hopes of utilizing its weight certificate service for the prevention of rollover accidents. We had the honor of receiving significant support from NKKK in our effort for the development of the three-dimensional center of gravity measurement function. Earlier, we installed a truck scale equipped with two-dimensional center of gravity measurement function at the Port Island Measurement Depot. Now, we have added a vibrator and various sensors to the existing scale to enable three-dimensional measurement. Furthermore, we made the same upgrade on the scale at Oi Pier Measurement Depot.
