Dynamic and Static Weighing Solutions

AMCS offers dynamic and static market-leading scales developed to meet the needs of your business. Our scale house solutions enable you to weigh all incoming and outgoing material. This is key if your company is selling or charging by weight, needs to document regulatory compliance regarding overload, or simply wants to achieve maximum operational efficiency. With AMCS scale house you are able to collect and manage weight information faster and easier, making your operations more productive and efficient.
Based on 25 years of experience of designing and producing scale house solutions, AMCS offers high-quality products. The weighing solutions are built for Nordic conditions and tough environments and can be provided as attended or unattended scales.

Dynamic or static scales?

If your company has a steady flow of vehicles entering and exiting your site, and the weighing procedure needs to be conducted swiftly, a dynamic scale house is a right solution for you, as vehicles do not need to stop while weighing is conducted. Despite the relatively small size of the dynamic scale it enables you to weigh vehicles of any length. This factor is highly relevant if you do not know the maximum length of the vehicles you need to weigh. A dynamic scale house is also ideal if you need to comply with axle load limits as the load on each axle is weighed individually, fast, and accurately when the vehicle crosses the scale.​

Major benefits

  • Reduced revenue leakage by addressing the problem of revenue lost through inaccurate weighing and thus pricing
  • Increased efficiency at the scale house as the weighing system can be operated by the driver
  • Ability to document compliance with regulations regarding overload
  • Ability to optimize and achieve paperless work processes
  • Improved overview and efficiency of operations as the scale can be integrated to Waste Management and ERP system for weighing notes, inventory management, reports, statistics, invoicing, etc.
