The demand for enhanced safety and lower costs of operation are a challenge with the ability to weigh trains an important issue that can redefine passenger and freight transportation. It is not uncommon for trains to undergo various maintenance programs periodically such as major bogie overhauls or heavy refurbishment. However the need for regular maintenance and the growing demand for commuter/passenger services means that train services have to be available throughout the year. In addition it is beneficial to weigh freight vehicles when looking to maximise the aggregate load which has both a cost and time saving.
The markets we operate within are diverse and the advice and support we provide is specialised towards our customers. This has allowed us to work on challenging and rewarding projects such as the Orient Express and the Royal Train. Other weighing projects can be viewed on Our News page. Our approach is simple, using our train weighing expertise and knowledge we develop long term relationships where we can advise and deliver systems that are suited to your weighing requirements.
The market which we supply our portable train weigher (PTW’s) is global with hundreds of train weighing systems in over 30 different countries. The conditions in which they operate are varied from the cold conditions of Eastern Europe to the hot conditions of the Middle East.
At Weighwell we provide rail depots and workshops accurate and flexible systems that specialise in the maintenance of trains and are ideal solutions for the Commuter, Rapid Transit, Urban rail and High Speed rail markets.
