Weighbridges & Automation

Opto Africa Steel Deck Weighbridges

Developed over 15 years the OptoAfrica steel deck weighbridge range manufactured to high specifications suitable for use in most arduous conditions.
Once the steel deck is fabricated the whole structure is covered with anti corrosion primer and then anti rust polyurethane paint.
Steel conduit is used to protect load cell cables from the environment and harsh external factors.
The weighbridge is then assembled and tested in the factory prior to despatch such as deflection tests under load using dials and electronic testing apparatus using the load cells to be used on site.
Modular in design the weighbridge is delivered on a single truck and is installed using the truck crane thus reducing installation costs.
The unique design of the side rails and easy maintenance access plates mean that the same weighbridge deck can be used for surface/above ground or pit mounted applications.
All deck plates are secured using corrosion resistant stainless steel fittings.
