CWIS Weighbridge Systems

As the Malaysia’s leading Truck Scale / Weighbridge Supplier, CWIS offers a complete range of Truck Scale System for the application of commercial duty to extreme duty cycle. The deck design for the upper surface of the weighbridge is of steel or concrete surface provides equal weighing performance because both are built to the same design specifications. However, there are some differences that could make one deck type more advantages for your site or application.

We offer both Pit-mounted and Surface version (or referred to as Pitless Weighbridge), constructed from steel and steel concrete composite. Surface version can be installed with concrete ramps or steel ramps, making it easier to move the weighbridge to a different location.

We also offer portable type weighbridge, ideal for construction sites.

Main Components of a Truck Scale / Weighbridge


A scale may be installed over an excavation, allowing the driving surface to be flush with the ground. It also may be installed in an above-ground configuration with approaches allowing the truck to drive onto, and off of, the scale. Either way, permanent installations use a concrete foundation.

Truck Scale / Weighbridge

Also known as the scale deck, this is the structure that creates the driving surface for the trucks. The weighbridge is typically composed of modular sections that are placed together to span the desired length. Modules can be made entirely of steel with a steel tread plate as the driving surface. They also can be designed to be filled with concrete, creating a concrete driving surface.

Load Cells

These are the sensors that measure the weight on the scale. Modern scales use load cells as integral structural components. In other words, the weighbridge is supported by the load cells themselves. There are a few different types of load cells. They are typically positioned at the corners of each weighbridge module.


Also sometimes referred to as an indicator, the terminal is the control panel for the scale. It displays the weight value to the operator, and often serves as the connection point for other scale peripherals.


The signal from the load cells must be transmitted to the terminal. In most cases, this is done with cables.

Junction Boxes

Many scales require numerous junction boxes as connection points for the load cell cables. The junction boxes combine the signals from the load cells and eventually connect to the terminal with a single cable. However, some newer systems no longer require junction boxes.

Information Management

Handwritten weight tickets have given way to printed forms via integrated printers. Scale software plays an increased role for sites large and small. Software can automate data capture, speeding up weighing times and reducing opportunities for errors.


This can include traffic controls, such as gates and lights. Remote weight displays that let the truck driver view the weight are also popular. Special equipment can be incorporated into the scale, such as cameras and radiation sensors. Additionally, some sites take advantage of new automation and self-service capabilities.
