Walz laser bulk measurement tool certified

An Illinois company known for developing heavy-duty truck scales, Walz Scale, said a laser-based volumetric measurement solution it built to scan bulk loads remotely while in motion has been certified by the US government’s official body for weighing equipment.

The company's Walz Scanner has received the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) certification as "legal-for-trade" - the first time such an advanced solution has received the certification in the US.

The Walz Scanner uses laser technology to scan and measure bulk material loads in trucks and rail cars. The system operates similar to truck and rail scales, but allows operations to achieve legal-for-trade volumetric load measurements while the vehicle is in motion.

"This is a big step forward in improving operational efficiencies for our customers", said Walz.

NTEP legal-for-trade certification for this technology opens up the opportunity for operations to use the Walz Scanner in replacement of or in conjunction with the company's scales.
