Are you looking for a railway scale for static weighing of rail vehicles carrying solid or liquid loads? For this case we offer the most accurate rail scale on the market.

If you are looking for dynamic weighing of wagons up to 15 km/h with unrivaled accuracy for weighing solid and liquid loads, you can use our solution.

Are you a logistics center operator or a product plant operator and need fast dynamic commercial or process weighing up to 30 km/h? Our SILVERPOINT solution can be a very interesting choice for you. The scale is very easy to install without interference with the rail superstructure, as the sensors are embedded in the rail body.

If you need a dynamic railway scale for commercial weighing of wagons and trains up to 120 km/h or technological weighing up to 250 km/h, the SCALEX WILD may be an interesting solution for you.

We offer a unique system for automatic static weighing of wheel, axle and chassis loads and the total weight of railway traction and driven rail vehicles for manufacturers and repair companies. The SCALEX RDW measuring system is a suitable solution for determining and, if necessary, setting all the necessary weight parameters of railcars in terms of ensuring their technical competence.

Scalex WILD helped The Finnish Transport Agency to detect the defects and improve the safety

High speeds, heavy loads and challenging weather conditions are hard on the wheels of railway equipment. For example, they may develop flat spots due to locked brakes, which makes the wheel wear out of roundness and causes damage to rolling stock and the rails. Material defects or steel fatigue may also cause pieces of the wheel to come loose.

“A flat spot on a wheel’s running surface hits the rail on each revolution and the wheel bearings are also subjected to an equivalent force. When this continues long enough, the bearings start to break and finally jam. In the end, the axle may break and derail the train,” explains Seppo Mäkitupa, Head of the railway unit at the Finnish Transport Agency.
