NZ Weighbridges - Truck Scales - Axle Weighers

Scaletec is a New Zealand supplier of  NZ Built and imported Trade Approved Weighbridges, axle weighers & Weighbridge Software offering full Weighbridge Calibration, Service and Repair.

There are 4 different types of weighbridge please click on links below:
Surface mount weighbridge
Dini Argeo DTW
Which weighbridge?
With so many options out there it is hard to know which one suits you best, of course we are here to help but below a bit of a guide with few pros and cons:

  • Ensure your scale is large enough for your requirements, plan your truck scale needs based on the largest truck you ever plan to weigh. This should include future needs as well as many weighbridges are in service for 20+years
  • The space available, your weighing application and your long-term needs.
  • A portable vehicle scale is an option if your weighing needs are not long term or if it would be useful to be able to move the weighbridge to various locations.
  • Trade use or enforcement control

Above Ground V In Pit Weighbridge Installations
In Ground - These weighbridges are installed in a pit, keeping them flush to the road surface
  • Uses less space
  • Flush to ground reducing site hazard
  • More Expensive civil cost to install
  • Pit can build up with Debris
  • Drainage requirements typically solved with fitting a sump pump
  • Confined space for maintenance and cleaning

Aboved Ground - This type of weighbridge sits above of the road surface, and requires ramps on either end to allow the vehicles to access the platform
  • Need to allow more space for drive on off ramps
  • Can pick up wind interfearance in exposed sites
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • May need side guide rails
  • Easy to relocate

Concrete Weighbridge V Steel Deck Weighbridge
Steel Deck:
  • Fast installation, and easy relocation and expansion
  • Lower profiles and variable deck plates available
  • Less initial cost and no need to wait for a concrete deck to cure
  • steel deck scale weighs less, making it easier to relocate and expand if needed.
  • 95% of weighbridges installed in NZ are steel
Concrete Deck:
  • longer life - Typically Five to seven years
  • More mass means less friction and wear
  • Better load distribution
  • Not readily relocatable
  • Longer install time - A concrete deck, which needs approximately 21 to 28 days to cure, is poured during installation and usually done by an outside contractor. Cured, factory-poured concrete decks may be damaged during transport and may have higher installation and transport costs due to the heavy weight of the concrete.

Types of Loadcell
Analogue load cells- Analogue load cells are the most common solution. The output of analogue load cell is a continuous millivolt (mV) signal proportional to the applied load. Further processing and Analogue-to-Digital (A-to-D) conversion is done in the indicator. Analogue load cells can easily be paired with a variety of digital indicators across multiple brands. The load cells are further differentiated by design e.g. Compression, Shear-beam type

Digital load cells- Unlike conventional analogue load cells, which rely on external wiring, junction boxes and A to D circuitry, digital cells typically use a RS285 signal back to the indicator meaning the signal is less effected unwanted electrical interference and can be transferred more effectively over longer distances between load cells and the indicator. Digital load cells allows faster initial calibration, as well as featuring built in diagnostic tools. BUT you can be tied to the one service provider for the life span of your weighbridge with little option around upgrading in the future.

However, the in-built electronics that offer these benefits makes these cells more costly as well as more complicated to repair. Despite A-to-D conversion inside the load cell itself, a digital indicator is still required for calibration, display and certification.

Load cell accuracy- Keep in mind that accuracy of a load cell has no relation to it being analogue or digital, compression or shear-beam type. All of these can offer an accurate and dependable solution, provided the load cell fulfils the accuracy criteria as set by the relevant certifying bodies OIML R60
Look for stainless-steel loadcells with a verified IP rating which offers protection against the dirt and water that can build up under the weighbridge.

Innovative vehicle weighing dual track weighbridge, easily transportable and installable thanks to the reduced height and weight. Designed and built with vey high quality materials, this represents the most efficient solution for saving time, space, and money in comparison to the classic weighbridges currently available on the market. The standard version is fitted with CE-M 3000e APPROVAL, for legal for trade use.


Precise and versatile platforms, suitable for all kinds of applications; ideal for modern industries, farms, work yards, landfills, ports, etc, in which one can save space or change the logistical stations.
Extremely compact: only 22 cm high. Takes up little space if installed on the street surface, reduced masonry if installed flush floor to the road surface.
The load capacity complies with the 96/53/EC Directive which defines the maximum axle load for the vehicles transiting in Europe (version for higher loads is available upon request).
Sturdy loading surface in striated sheet steel.
Sandblasting and varnishing with bi-component epoxy coating, highly resistant to corrosion.
Installable above, as well as flush floor to the street surface.
Reinforced on and off ramps, for mobile or fixed installation (optional).
Weight detection system through oscillating load bars (patented system) with integrated brake / acceleration compensating limits and anti-slip rubber resting plates.
Load cells protected from dust and water.
Fitted with approval, carried out in factory (to be combined with Dini Argeo indicator).
Dust and waterproof wirings and connections, easy to connect and disconnect.
Modularity: by adding or removing pairs of modules, the weighbridges can have these lengths: 4,5 m - 9 m - 13,5 m - 18 m - 22,5 (up to 36m by price estimate).
Wide range of connectable weight indicators, also functioning with rechargeable battery, which allow to use the weighbridge also without an electrical power supply.
30m long connection cable between DTW and indicators.
