The other dimension of weighing
Aeronautical weighing

Aeronautical weighing

Aircraft manufacturers and aircraft maintenance companies – MRO – face various challenges when it comes to ensuring the profitability of commercial operations and flight safety. They must take into consideration the weight and balance of the aircraft during its construction and maintenance. If an aircraft is not properly centered or loaded, it can lead to an incident or even an accident during the take-off risking the safety of passengers and crew. Initial weighing of the aircraft is carried out with embedded aircraft scales, center of gravity calculation software – CoG, wireless mobile scales incorporating advanced communication technologies that can provide accurate and secure data. These weighing systems ensure that an aircraft can fly safely and that its performance is optimal. These reference data will be used by airline companies throughout the operation phase of the aircraft to determine the maximum transportable weight.

Weighing aircraft and helicopters

Captels ensures the design, the manufacture and installation of weighing system with center of gravity software – CoG - for aircrafts and helicopters in the aeronautics industry. Mobile weighing solutions, wheel weighing systems and dedicated aircraft scales designed by Captels use the latest technological advances in electronic weighing and strain gauge sensors (load cells). For an optimum accuracy, weighing sets are calibrated with approved dead weights. A transport rack dedicated to each type of weighing scales can be provided as an option. Captels products are designed to facilitate their use by their ergonomics and light weight. They ensure the safe weighing of aircrafts and helicopters.

Aircraft-specific weighing solutions

The aircraft weighing systems developed by Captels are specific to the aeronautical industry. In-ground fixed scales incorporate advanced weighing technologies that allow the precise position of the wheels to be displayed on each weighing platform. This technology, coupled with a lifting table, can be used to calculate an aircraft's center of gravity, including aircrafts’ attitude corrections. Weighing data is transmitted in real time to the central processing unit (calculations, saving weights, printing weighing sheets, statistics, etc.). Captels software, designed for the aeronautical industry, facilitates the acquisition and running of all weighing operations, calculation of the center of gravity and management of weighing sheets stored in a secure database.
