Tiffin Loader Crane Testing Equipment

Transportation and Rail | Heavy / Off-Road Equipment | Crane Systems | Power & Motion Technology | by Matt Gergeni | Aug 04, 2014


Tiffin Loader Crane’s primary focus is providing innovative lifting, loading, and handling solutions for customers’ unique material handling problems. The previous system of wired controls for calibrating and testing truck and rail weighing scales led to high shock loading, and reduced component life, and make it difficult to perform fine movements. Proactively seeking wireless solutions in an industry that does not typically utilize them, Tiffin installed a custom-engineered system to better operate their trolley and winch functions.

Magnetek and S.G. Morris created a system solution that offers an integrated package of wireless control and hydraulics, allowing for smoother and easier operations. Enhancing equipment performance and simplifying adjustment capabilities were the goals of the new system install on the industrial scale certifying equipment. Scale test and calibration equipment determines the amount of loaded cargo and ensures the load is within road or rail limits. Several turnkey packages are available including enclosed Class 8 Truck van bodies or knuckle-boom flatbed configurations. Precision weights, which are carried by a mobile transporter in the truck body, are dispatched via trolley and winch systems that raise and lower the carrier and weights to and from the ground. 3,000-6,000 and 8,000 pound test carts calibrate the railroad and heavy capacity truck scales.
