MTW - Mobile Train Weigher - Take the scale to the train

Accurate, Robust & Reliable

Purchase and rental available

The MTW Mobile Train Weigher is a train weighing system that can be transported in the boot of a car or utility or train cabin and set up to weigh and spot check a rail vehicle/train anywhere static or in motion. The MTW offers one of the world’s most convenient, safe & accurate train weighing solutions. The MTW Mobile Train Weigher design incoporates a chassis arrangement with an integrated loadcell, this design means weight is applied directly to the loadcell and not through the rail. The advantage of weighing axle by axle is that there is no restriction with regards to wagon type. The MTW is factory pre-calibrated, so that no transport of test weights or calibrated wagons are required. The MTW is ideal for spot checking of weights and or for short term weighing of rail vehicles.
