Monorail Scales

Monorail scales are designed to be used with monorail systems, which are overhead railways that use a single rail or track. Monorail scales are typically made from steel or aluminum, and they have a large platform on which the monorail car rests. The scale measures the weight of the monorail car by using sensors that are located underneath the platform.

Monorail Scale FAQs

Monorail scales are a type of industrial weighing system that uses load cells and other sensors to weigh objects as they move along a monorail track. The monorail track is typically suspended from the ceiling or other support structure, and the objects to be weighed are attached to a carrier or trolley that moves along the track. As the object moves along the track, it passes over one or more load cells or sensors that measure the weight of the object and send the data to a digital display or other device.

Monorail scales are commonly used in manufacturing, logistics, and transportation industries, where objects need to be weighed as they move along a production line or through a warehouse.

Monorail scales work by measuring the weight of an object as it moves along a monorail track. The monorail track is equipped with load cells and sensors that detect the weight of the object and send the data to a digital display or other device.

Monorail scales are increasingly being used in industrial and commercial applications due to their many advantages. One of the most significant advantages of using monorail scales is their high accuracy.. Additionally, monorail scales can improve throughput times and increase productivity by weighing objects as they move along a production line or through a warehouse. They eliminate the need for manual weighing, reducing the risk of errors and improving efficiency in the weighing process.

When purchasing a monorail scale, consider features such as a Certificate of Conformance, size and weight capacity, accuracy, durability, and live rail size. Look for a scale made with durable materials, with high accuracy and a weight capacity that suits the items to be weighed. The length of the rail should be long enough to accommodate the items.

Yes, monorail scales can be designed to meet the requirements of hazardous environments, such as those with explosive or flammable materials. These scales are typically constructed using materials that are resistant to corrosion and designed to prevent sparks or other sources of ignition.

"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
