About the FORCE WIM

Designed for extreme accuracy in dynamic weighing, the FORCE is a streamlined weighing system that requires no major groundwork.

The system simply bolts onto the rails, with no need for sleeper replacement, cutting of the track, or additional rail sections. Installation can also be carried out while the trains are still running. With the FORCE Weigh In Motion system, you can avoid overloading your cargo and ensure the smooth running of your goods. 

The system boasts an extreme degree of accuracy and will ensure your cargo remains within the safety parameters. The system will highlight any potential risks upon weighing, allowing you to rectify them before an accident has time to happen. Save lives, losses and damages with the FORCE WIM.

The FORCE WIM will:

  • Ensure complete accuracy of readings for in-motion trains 
  • Improve safety through understanding weight distribution
  • Highlight any wheel imbalance problems
  • Identify wheel flat spots when supplied with the flats detection system
  • Increase fuel economy
  • Ensure symmetrical loading and highlight any off centre loading

Here at TrainWeigh, we have over 30 years of experience in the rail weighing sector. Our teams can fully install the FORCE WIM system to the highest professional standards, in whatever format meets your requirements. We can also train your staff in the full usage of the system, ensuring you get the full optimum benefit of it. We can also provide ongoing maintenance, from simple housekeeping and calibration to running the system in complete confidence. 

TrainWeigh understands the system needs to run efficiently. We can tailor a maintenance schedule to suit your exact needs. We will work in partnership to ensure the system is always running at peak performance.
