When ‘Fabulous’ Las Vegas, Nevada welcomes ISWM’s 2018 Conference, travelers arriving through McCarran International Airport will find Pennsylvania M64 baggage scales and indicators throughout both terminals at all gates. By the end of 2017, Terminal 3, with its spectacular renovations will be a modern aviation travel showcase and will feature Pennsylvania baggage scales at all check-in locations...
Rinstrum’s new In Motion Axle Scale is a fast, accurate and economical way to weigh trucks and verify your net payload. The patented precast concrete design is semi portable and can be moved from jobsite to jobsite or permanently installed. Contractors, farmers and plant managers will find this low-cost scale indispensable to their operations. In many cases the ROI on this affordable scale is one-third that of a full-length truck scale...
Anyload customized disk load cells (similar to the 363YH 200t and 300t) were used for an offshore oil exploration platform that was estimated to weigh between 2000 to 2300 tons. It was tested three times with less than a 0.2 percent error, which is lower than the 0.5 percent test error requirement for large structures such as this...
The LS-WIM Weigh-in-Motion Axle Scale Systems from Intercomp is an efficient, cost effective alternative to older full size truck scales. The LS-WIM scale systems are NTEP Certified (Legal for Trade) when weighing in static mode. Intercomp also released a new purpose-built indicator for the LS-WIM scale system as a great solution for a variety of truck traffic applications...

There is a saying that “innovation is one part idea and nine parts hard work”. In engineering that can be expressed as “one part need and nine parts hard work.” It was a clearly expressed need that led the ANYLOAD to recently develop an innovative shear beam foot 500kg load cell. Larger load cells of this type are relatively easy to produce as the weight that causes elastic deformation of the load cell can be designed to any size and length so long as the engineering is precise...
Landslides can be an unfortunate side effect of modern engineering challenges in rugged terrain. Road building that cuts laterally across mountain faces can set up dangerous conditions. Engineers have been able to mitigate these effects by devising anchoring systems to hold the earth in check. But the forces of gravity are continuous and, to give maximum protection, such anchoring systems must be monitored for any variation.

The crane scale has been a steadfast icon of the weighing industry for decades. Evolving from its most basic form to the hi-tech versions available today, these staples of shipyards, warehouses and manufacturing have lived through some big changes in the world, and as the world and technology have evolved, these scales have evolved with them.
