Know The Weight of Your Roll-Off Containers
LoadMan designs weight management systems for virtually all roll-off and hook lift containers, and any size refuse & collection container. We know that some of those containers can lead to uneven tire wear or axle overload citations, LoadMan can display the weight for all axle groups before you hit the road.
Transform Weight into Business Intelligence
Our software fits right into your back offices' existing data platform providing your waste management directors with real-time data and custom reports to make timely and profitable business decisions. More...
99% AccuracyHigh precision electronics that compute payloads with 99% accuracy for most applications.
Let the Driver Drive™LoadMan automates the weighing process, each bin is weighed and data is displayed on screen and shared electronically with the back office.
Maximize LoadsOperate each truck to your maximum efficiency. Don't go to the tipping station overloaded or under loaded.
Asset ManagementUsing LoadMan Load Management Software you will always know the location of each and every container and the history of where they have been located.
Technologies We Use
LoadMan loadcells use a patented technique that measures the weight and bending forces in the exact center of the steel. Other's loadcells cannot. So what does that mean to you? Superior, Consistent, and Repeatable Accuracy.
LoadMan patented Axial Beam Loadcells and Hinge Pin Loadcells measure shear forces in the load cells. The axial beam and hinge-pin loadcells are designed and engineered for commercial vehicles that carry heavy bulk material. Scale systems are custom designed to the truck specifications so customers do not need to customize their trucks. Typical applications would be either a 4-point or 6-point system, depending on overall length of the roll off chassis. LoadMan systems are designed to measure “primary load”; therefore the entire tilt frame is carried by the loadcells.
The LoadMan roll-off and hook-lift 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 weather and road chemicals. The hinge pin loadcells are rated at 6000 lb dynamic capacity (2721 kg) and the axial beam loadcells at a dynamic capacity of 2000 lbs (907 kg). Loadcell accuracy is typically within 1% (or 99% accurate).
Other companies that provide on-board payload scales utilize secondary transducers that are mounted (typically welded) to the front steel axle and the rear drive axle group. This design measures secondary load, which is dependent on zero degrees level; meaning that the truck must be on completely level ground to achieve any weight accuracy. In field testing, secondary transducer technology on average provides a 3% to 7% error on payload – or more. This degree of error would allow operators to grossly overload there vehicles making them dangerous to operate on public roads.
The LM300 Meter is a single box in-cab computer using proprietary micro-code to determine the exact weight of a load within 1%. The LoadMan scale system is completely automatic 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.
Asset Management Software
The LM300 is designed to communicate with LoadMan Load Management software in the back office. Routes can be downloaded into the on-board computer for assisting the driver’s schedule. Additionally, the routing software manages the asset inventory of all containers -- where they are placed (using GPS detection), where they have been (full history), and where to be picked up or delivered next.
LoadMan’s Load Management Software (operating in the back office) allows remote tracking of trucks, drivers, customers, routes and products by account or job. Routes can be downloaded into the on-board computer for assisting the driver’s schedule. Additionally, the routing software manages the asset inventory of all containers -- where they are placed (using GPS detection), where they have been (full history), and where to be picked up or delivered next.
