Effective stock control has never been so important given the challenges businesses face in the current economic climate. To help make the most efficient use of product, time and machinery, RDS Scotland will be exhibiting its new Loadmaster iX range of on-board weighing systems for medium to large wheeled loaders.
Loadmaster iX benefits from additional standard features including temperature compensation enhancing system performance particularly on machines with a wide variation in operating temperature and angle compensation providing an additional level of precision beneficial on most sites and not only those with obvious slopes.
In addition, the Loadmaster iX range offers effective management of weighing data. The Loadmaster 8000iX has an integral SD card port for the fast and efficient transfer of data between loader and weighbridge or office PC and enables pre-registered customer reference data to be uploaded directly to the instrument.
RDS will also be exhibiting the trade-approvable Loadmaster 9000i. When fitted to a wheeled loading shovel, this on-board weighing scale effectively transforms the loader into a mobile weighbridge which conforms to MID Class Y(b) levels of accuracy.
The company has recently gained approval via the UK National Measurements Office to self-verify its instruments. Subject to formal training by RDS, this approval extends to all EU RDS distributors. This will dramatically speed up verification times and reduce end user costs.
Also on show at Scotplant will be the Liftlog 100+. Designed specifically for forklift trucks it offers weighing & load monitoring functions with an internal alarm to warn when load threshold is approached and at the overload point. The Liftlog 100+ also offers a totalising feature. Negating the need to travel to a floor-mounted platform scale often sited in a remote part of the warehouse, the Liftlog 100+ provides a time-efficient means of check weighing.
