Stationary low-floor animal scales. This weighing station fits in any aisle.

Investments in stationary weighing machines are worthwhile.

For consistent optimization of animal farming it is absolutely necessary to carry out control weighing on a regular basis. Such control leads to important information which helps to increase economic efficiency of fattening and breeding farms: e.g. accurate data related to weight increases, effective animal control during weighing process, carcass yield and fattening control as well as selling weight of piglets and fatteners. Maximum returns can only be achieved at optimum selling weight.

Accurate weighing and comfortable details.

Our stationary low-floor scales are used for weighing of groups and also for fast weighing of individual animals before slaughtering. It is constructed to fit into the requested position inside your stable and excels with excellent practice-oriented handling.

 

Easy access to the scales - Even for rearing piglets.

These scales can be placed in the stable aisles due to the very low access height of only 2 cm. The scales are very easy to access for humans and animals and do not need to be embedded in the floor. This is not only time saving, there are also no more lowerings in the floors which often cause dirt and water accumulations.

Fast and stress-free weighing of animal groups thanks to many innovative details.

From practice

Ludwig Rasche, manager of a pig fattening farm, says “What I like best is the fast, comfortable and easy weighing. The weight indicator works well and fast.  The scale has everything I need. I also use the chassis to park the scale in front of the individual pen in which I want to weigh. Since I drive the animals from different sides onto the scales, I also had the second remote control attached. The automatic door opener is especially great because you never have to push past the animals to open the gates.”

Narrow bar spacing.

The narrow bar spacing makes it possible to weigh even small rearing piglets.

 

Anti-skid floor.

Animals are placed on corrosion resistant aluminium (cattle transport base plate) which is anti-skid and easy to clean.

 

Corrosion-free aluminium construction.

Made of especially for this weighing machine developed floor profiles and entirely welded square profiles to ensure best stability and low net weight.

Double doors.

Equipped with snap-function, opens completely inwards and outwards. Therefore length of scales can be calculated to reach the door of the pen.

 

Remote operation by foot pedal.

Both double doors can be opened by foot pedal from the other side. Springs push the doors outwards and keep them open. The animals can easily walk through. No space next to the scales needed to walk all the way through to the other side to open the opposite side gate.

NEW: Weighing display for fast weighing

The new weighing display facilitates the quick sorting of the pigs with the help of a traffic light display. The desired weight range can be programmed individually and is displayed in green when weighing. Weights above and below the desired range are marked by red and yellow.

Weights are stored and totaled if necessary and can be transferred to the computer via a standard USB interface.

The display is large and bright and also easy to read in the stable. An animal weighing program as well as an automatic rebalancing also facilitate the fast animal weighing. The power supply is via mains adapter or battery operation.   

 

Weighing using zero position

Depending on operational conditions, sorting of fattening pigs before slaughter date can be carried out very efficiently with the low-floor scales. Especially by taking advantage of the scale’s zero position. To do so, just let all the pigs enter the scales together ever since it is much easier for them to walk out one at a time than to walk in one at a time. Once the animals are all on the scale, tare the weighing display to zero position. After the first animal left the scale, the display shows the individual animal weight by indicating a minus weight; tare again and so on until all pigs are weighed individually.

The weights of the animals are recorded and stored as usual during weighing process, and the traffic light display can also be used for sorting.
