Trusted and respected worldwide Weighwell continue to provide advanced train weighing solutions for some of the most illustrious names within the rail industry such as Network Rail, SNCF, Siemens and Hitachi.
Weighwell invented and designed the Portable Train Weigher (PTW) which has been recognised with multiple awards for its innovative and invaluable contribution to the rail industry. The PTW with its unique design can be integrated into a variety of rail profiles and rail gauges and allows for static or in-motion train weighing in virtually any location. This provides beneficial time and cost savings without the need for expensive civil works or problematic track modifications.
Our static train weighing systems are predominantly suited to the train manufacture and repairs market and used in conjunction with our user friendly ptwX software we can assist rail depots and train maintenance workshops that require alterations and adjustments to their locomotives or passenger cars. Through providing bespoke reports which are catered towards the configuration of your train (with support for up to 16 axles), we are able to provide precise information in relation to the total locomotive such as individual wheel weights, axle weights or weight differences across the bogies.
Our in-motion train weighing systems are perfect for the heavy industry markets of steel, cement, gypsum and minerals. Installed within 15 minutes, no restriction on wagon type and with a high degree of accuracy we are able to provide axle, wagon and total train weights for those that need to weigh loaded or unloaded vehicles on major transportation routes.
