Instrowest Case Studies

Kewdale Hire, VEI Helper X Install

Instrowest was approached by Kewdale Hire to supply and install an
onboard weigh scale system on one of their front end loaders located
approximately 400km South East of Perth.

The client was loading and hauling road-trains to assist with the
upgrade of the wheat belt train line in Buniche. Urgency was placed on
the installation of an onboard scale for the accurate loading of trucks,
with this in mind Instrowest was able to attend site the following day,
install and commission the VEI onboard scale unit ready for use.

Installation of the unit took approximately 12hrs from start to finish.
Calibration of the VEI on-board weigh scale was done at a local
weighbridge using a material calibration method.

Once installed, Instrowest was able to fully customize the unit based on
the client’s needs. The operator was given training on the unit, its
operating capabilities and calibration of the unit.

This loader has since moved to another site, Instrowest has provided
training to the new operator, and reconfigured the system to suit the new
client’s needs.
