Hy-Dynamix to build portable wireless container weighing solution

Published: Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Engineering firm Hy-Dynamix has teamed up with Dynamic Load Monitoring (UK) Ltd (DLM) to build new wireless reporting technology into its portable container weighing solution, the Hy-Weigh.

The four-corner hydraulic jack system, launched in May, raises containers in situ, and is now operable in a wide range of high and low temperatures, maintaining an accuracy reading of +/-2%, which is required to satisfy the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Verified Gross Mass (VGM) weighing requirements.

DLM’s load monitoring technology means that the Hy-Weigh can now give a graphical view of a container and load readings at each of its four corners, as well as the total load reading and centre of gravity, in real-time and wirelessly.

The DLM technology incorporated into the Hy-Weigh jack delivers a suite of benefits, including real-time load and centre of gravity readings which can wirelessly integrate with existing Terminal Operating Software systems.

Hy-Dynamix is also launching new products, including G-jacks, a lower cost system for customers who need to weigh grounded containers, and do not require the option to move them around. These will be launched next year, the company announced.
