Trimble LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale with Weighing Intelligence to Optimize Loadout, Track Productivity and Prevent Overloading
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 18, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today the release of Trimble® LOADRITE® L3180 SmartScale for wheel loaders.
With the next generation of loader scales, Trimble is significantly improving aggregates payload management. The LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence to analyze the load, machine and its environment using solid state sensors for more accurate, precise and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of loading data via built-in Wi-Fi and GPS connecting to the InsightHQ™ quarry reporting portal. InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble LOADRITE devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across the site, to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and load-out operations in quarries.
Reengineered from the ground up, Trimble's innovative, next generation loader scale platform features smarter weighing, smarter data management and a smarter interface. Intelligence in the weighing software and new hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load faster and more productively than ever before.
"We took our 35 years of world-leading technical and domain expertise and challenged our team to deliver the ideal tool for the industry," said Johan Smet, general manager of Trimble's Aggregates Division. "The result is our most accurate and easy to use scale ever. Operators appreciate the confidence, independence and comfort it gives them, and managers value the cost savings and improved customer service."
