WINKLE INDUSTRIES ADDS IN-MOTION WEIGHING SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY TO MATERIAL HANDLING PRODUCT LINE

Tech Weigh load cells replace the lifting yoke on material handlers.

Alliance, OH – Expanding on its extensive range of aftermarket distribution products, Winkle Industries is now representing the Tech Weigh ScrapMaster line of in-motion weighing systems for magnets and grapples.

Winkle President Joe Schatz announced the new distribution agreement, saying, “The Tech Weigh system is an ideal fit for Winkle products and for our customers. It complements our own line of custom lifting magnets, and moves us another step closer to being a single source supplier for all material handling applications.”

Technical Weighing Services Inc., based in Griffith, IN, manufactures a complete system of Tech Weigh onboard load weighing systems for cranes, lifting magnets and scrap grapples. Tech Weigh load cells simply replace the lifting yoke on cranes and scrap-handling equipment to report load weights while loading operations are in motion. Software supplied with the system allows operators to record weights per-lift, per-load and according to material grade or blend.

With a Tech Weigh scale, material handling operations can capture accurate load data without impeding the operator or loading equipment. Load data is transmitted to LED displays and/or printers in the crane cab or to a remote location. Tech Weigh load cells are sized to handle loads from 1,000 to 100,000 lbs., with weights accurate within 1%.

Along with the Tech Weigh onboard weighing links, Winkle will represent Tech Weigh truck scales. These “WeighMaster” truck scales also utilize load cell technology, with capacities up to 100 tons.
