All actors of road transport, car manufacturers, car transformers of light commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles are players in the road transport industry, subject to complex regulations that are evolving in a changing world. Any vehicle, system or component must be constructed and installed in such a way as to comply with regulatory requirements. Reducing CO2 and the pollutants emitted by motor vehicles is currently a major theme. Standards take into account vehicle's mass, which plays a role in its aerodynamics and fuel consumption. Qualified operators use axle weighing systems, wheel weighing systems and mobile scales to check the distribution of loads on the axles and the tare weight of the vehicles. These regulations help to boost the performance of manufacturers and the quality of the new bodied or converted vehicles they put on the market.
Captels supplies axle and wheel weighing systems for the automotive industry. These accurate and durable weighing systems can be used in-ground or above-ground. Captels weighing equipment is offered for Industrial Metrology or Legal Metrology in accordance with regulations applicable to the automotive industry for Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments. Axle weighing systems are used to determine the weight of a vehicle by weighing each axle independently. The distribution of axle loads and the vehicle's tare weight can be printed on a ticket or weighing slip. Wheel weighing offers the possibility of weighing an entire vehicle in a single operation. It makes weighing operations easier and helps to optimise processes.
Mobile scales are essential equipment in the automotive industry. They can be set up quickly without taking up space dedicated to weighing vehicles. For mobile use above ground, truck weighing systems need to be levelled under each wheel of the unweighed axles. These accessories help to avoid major load transfers and optimise the accuracy of the scales. To be accurate, weighing an axle that is included in a group of axles must be carried out at the same height. As the pioneer in road vehicle axle weighing, Captels puts its expertise at your full disposal. Our expertise is based on over 35 years' experience in the design and manufacture of wheel and axle weighing systems.
