Axle Weigh Bridges

An axle weigh bridge is a large measurement device used to weight complete vehicles such as trucks and tractor trailers. Weight bridges are usually mounted over a concrete slab, though they can also be mounted over an open pit with support at the edges of the bridge. The weight measurement is accomplished by a collection of load cells distributed under the bridge according to the type and maximum weight of the vehicles to be weighed.
