Weighing and determination of the center of gravity

Accuracy.  Precision.  Quality.  Reliability.  Durability.  Innovation.  Systratec.
In Systratec we design, manufacture, install and maintain high quality and precision weighing systems for any sector of industrial activity. We manufacture our scales and weighing systems in France and Spain, and export them to any country, displacing our installation team wherever our services are required.

Our product range includes:

  • Axle-weighing or Wheel-weighing systems for trucks and cars or competition vehicles, ground-embedded or on-ground, providing the weight per axle and / or wheel and the total weight as the sum of the weight of all the axles / wheels.
  • Portable weighing platforms to measure the weight per wheel in trucks, cars and competition vehicles.
  • Aeronautical weighing platforms specific for light, medium and large aircraft and for helicopters, with optional center of gravity calculation functions.
  • Platform scales for industrial weighing, for light, medium or large loads.
  • Advanced load cell kits for special applications: weighing ISO containers, weighing and calculating the center of gravity of complex structures, continuous weight monitoring in industrial processes, etc.

If the platforms and the different load receptors are important, weighing and visualization electronics are critical for the quality of a weighing instrument. At Systratec we design and manufacture our own weighing electronics, because we think that to have complete control of the entire measurement chain is the way to guarantee the highest quality and flexibility.

Our range of weighing electronics includes:

  • Static weighing electronics, portable stand-alone suitcase, industrial cabinet or desktop enclosure.
  • Dynamic weighing electronics for weight-in-motion applications, in portable stand-alone suitcase, industrial cabinet or desktop enclosure.
  • Aeronautical weighing electronics with measurement of the position of the wheel / train and calculation of the center of gravity.
  • Generic electronics for the connection of load cells or weighing kits tailored to the requirements of your project.

In addition to the precise determination of the weight, many of our systems also allow knowing the position of the center of gravity for different applications: from complex parts created in your machining centers to a commercial airplane after its last assembly phase. Our gravity centre measurement systems provide the coordinates of this point with millimeter precision, allowing to verify if the real distribution of masses corresponds to the theoretical one of the design phase.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

The desire to surpass traditional weighing technologies, building the most advanced, accurate and longest-lasting weighing systems on the market, is what drives the entire SYSTRATEC team. This ambitious objective is achieved by working on each scale in depth, seeking excellence in all the technologies used: the structural design, the choice of materials, the sensors used, the hardware of the measurement electronics and weight displays, the firmware of all the electronics, the calibration procedures and tools and countless other details. It is by taking the utmost care with each instrument, load receptor and electronics that we can guarantee our customers that the investment they have made in the purchase of their measuring equipment is protected and profitable by having an instrument that can be upgraded for many years and that is always capable of providing the highest quality of measured value in the industry. SYSTRATEC weighing and centre of gravity measurement systems incorporate the following unique technologies:

ULTRA-RIGID STRUCTURES

We build our scales and all our load receptors using only aerospace grade aluminium, stainless steel and carbon fibre. Our structures are designed to have zero deflection at nominal load over the tyre footprint. This results in greater linearity, accuracy and durability of all our instruments compared to traditional solutions.

FULL FIRMWARE CONTROL

As manufacturers of our own electronics, we have full control over the internal firmware. This allows us to offer the market
a very high capacity of adaptation and integration of our instruments in any customer’s process. It also allows us to update our instruments throughout their useful life, evolving their capabilities as our customers’ needs evolve.

MEASUREMENT OF THE POSITION OF THE LOAD

Our most advanced scales provide, in addition to the weight value, the exact position of the load on the platform with millimetre accuracy. This unique feature greatly reduces uncertainty in static mass distribution, centre of gravity or aircraft centring calculations.

HIGH-END WEIGHT SENSORS

We build our scales and load cells around high-end stainless steel sensors based exclusively on strain gauges. Partners since 2015 with the German sensor manufacturer HBM® Hottinger Brüel Kjaer, we exclusively use these load cells for their outstanding metrological quality and durability, which are recognised worldwide and present in all reference laboratories. The use of these high-end load cells allows for greater ease of adjustment year after year, virtually indefinitely, compared to other technologies such as piezoelectric, capacitive, or hydraulic pressure sensors, or low-quality load cells, which lose their ability to adjust after only a few years of use.

INDEPENDENT OPERATION OF EACH SENSOR

We do not use summing boxes in our instruments. Our proprietary electronics are capable of acquiring the individual signals of up to 20 load cells in parallel and simultaneously. We monitor each sensor during the weighing process to ensure we always provide the best possible measurement, detecting saturation, short circuits, unwanted traction states and other potential problems before giving a weight value that may not be of our trademark quality.

GREATER PRECISION

LONGER SERVICE LIFE

GUARANTEE 2 YEARS

IMPROVED USABILITY

LESS MAINTENANCE

UPGRADEABLE FIRMWARE

Featured Product

Auto|WS

A new Reference among portable systems for weighing and measuring the centre of gravity in cars and light aircraft.

Continuous weight monitoring system for waste containers during its loading process

Continuous weighing system for waste or civil-works containers. It is fixed on the ground and allows to know in real time the weight of the container, with continuous data transmission of the data to the computer systems and SCADA of the client. The leveling tracks eases container placement and extraction tasks. Structure entirely made of steel. Load capacity up to 30,000kg for special applications.
