All rail vehicle wheels have a flange that prevents the train from “jumping the track”. Weighwell invented and designed a frame with adjustable entry and exit ramps and a built-in loadcell. The frame lifts the wheel tyre but keeps the flange within the rail head allowing the simultaneous weighing of the wheel flange through a signal from the loadcell, which is converted into weight by the controller, giving a high degree of accuracy.
