In addition to withstanding wear and tear, overloaded freight cars deteriorate tracks and are subject to rejection or confinement by the railway company. Underloaded freight cars on the other hand generate losses, as freight is being paid for material that is not being transported. Our in-motion railway weigh stations maximise freight car utilisation and avoid penalties for overloading or denial of rail service.
Thanks to the fixed and portable systems of railway scales we work with at KINEO, for both static and in-motion weighing to determine the per-axle and total weight of the freight car, a procedure is available to check the received load report, minimise end-to-end load imbalances that can be rejected by rail services, and monitor productivity.
Our railway scales are structural and are integrated in the track by means of a simple engineering solution consisting of an approach slab and a semi-pit
