Vulcan On-Board Scales has weighing solutions for underground and above ground vehicles. We offer model specific on-board weighing solutions for high capacity dump and articulated dump trucks carrying greater than 20 tons. The scales include a meter in the cab of the truck and warning options to let the loader know when the maximum capacity has been reached. Additional options include Vulcan’s V700 Remote Display and exterior mounted scoreboards.
- Weight information can be used by the driver to limit loading of the vehicle in order to avoid overweight conditions or to load the vehicle to maximize payload efficiency
- Management can use the weight information to determine loading efficiency of the vehicle, carry back weight and the unused truck capacity due to under loading
- Overload information can be useful in creating vehicle service strategies and determining overall vehicle service lifetime

Additional Data that can be derived by using Vulcan On-Board Scales Systems.
Weight data includes: the number of loads hauled per shift, tons hauled per shift, time between loading and dumping, carry back weight and fatigue impact of payload and road conditions as it relates to a vehicles chassis and other critical components.
Managers can set operational weight limits, the driver can act on that weight limit using continual, real-time feedback from the in cab weight display. All data is stored and can be sent to external computing devices.
The Vulcan On-Board Scale System is a simple and effective way for companies to monitor and control how much each vehicle or fleet is hauling. It grants access to the immediate benefits of increase hauling efficiency aspects while also reinforcing positive driving habits and minimizing safety and liability concerns.

Case study demonstrates payload without an on-board scale system
This shows average payload of truck #931 at Thio Nickel Mine in New Caledonia.
Truck capacity: 50 tonne, number of loads: 877 over 35 days.
– 27% of the loads were 40 tonnes or less
– 16% were over 50 tonnes
– Average unused capacity was 6.2 tonnes (12.4% truck capacity)
– Average carry back weight was .9 tonnes
