Technologies We Use

Loadcells

LoadMan loadcells use a patented technique that measures the weight and bending forces in the exact center of the scale. Our loadcells uses an axial design that measures only shear forces (neither deflection nor bending forces). This design provides superior twist compensation over standard hinge pins or beam loadcells. Other's standard shear beam loadcells cannot provide this compensation. So what does that mean to you? Superior, Consistent, and Repeatable Accuracy.

LoadMan has been designing custom onboard payload systems for mining haul trucks, underground and open pit since 1997. Our technology does not utilize strut pressure transducer technology, instead we custom engineer electronic strain gage load cells. The goal is to replace existing factory parts with load cells with little to no modifying of haul trucks.

These loadcells are designed and engineered for commercial vehicles that carry heavy bulk material. Typical applications use two loadcell pins that replace the truck bed hinge pins, and beam loadcells on the chassis frame. The goal is to weigh the primary load which in most cases is the bed/tray. Analog signals are transmitted to a LoadCoder™ ( A/D converter), which in turn is connected to the in-cab computer/display for viewing and recording load and dump weights in pounds or kilograms.

The LoadMan mining truck loadcells are built using 4340 alloy steel plate. After machining, the loadcell is heat treated to RC40 specifications; providing 180,000psi strength. Each loadcell is also Cadmium plated to resist heavy corrosion from inclement weather and road chemicals. The dynamic capacity of each loadcell is dependent upon the custom design and weight requirements of the truck. LoadMan has installed mining truck scales that could weigh in excess of 480,000 lbs (217,724 kgs).

In-cab Computers & Displays

LoadMan LM300 Scale Meter

The LM300 Meter is a single box in-cab computer using proprietary micro-code to determine the exact weight of a load within 1% (typically). The LoadMan scale system can be configured for automated weighing and the driver/operator does not have to press any buttons or take any actions to obtain a weight reading on a 16 character LCD display.

For our three point loadcell configuration on over the road dump trucks used for the quarry and mines, drivers must perform a lift-to-weigh procedure to display the weight. The system will automatically display axle-1 steer axle, axle-2 driver axle, and the total truck gross weight. All LoadMan scale systems for dump trucks come with our proprietary axle math software. And each scale meter has built in diagnostic/troubleshooting software that informs the operator with necessary error messages

Software

LoadMan’s Load Management (LLM) Software (operating in the back office) allows remote tracking of trucks, drivers, customers, routes and commodities by account or job. The LoadMan LM300 meter communicates data with the LLM software that is written specifically for mining applications.

Testimonial

“We’ve had LoadMan weighing systems installed on a 740 articulating truck for over a year now, and we’re very pleased with its performance.  With the payload this truck carries, accuracy is critical. We regularly verify the LoadMan scale installed on this truck, and it has proven to be accurate and reliable even in our toughest environment.”
