VWS Bin Weighing Takes Centre Stage at PAWRS
May 2015

Star of the show on the VWS stand at PAWRS 2015 (9-11 June, Paignton) will be ENVIROWEIGH – the bin-weigher –  still the most popular and accurate bin weighing system for waste management operators.  However, VWS will also be wowing visitors with an exciting range of new and innovative products.

Since last years show VWS has gone on to develop its own software package, PurGo, designed specifically for the waste collection and recycling industry.  When used in conjunction with VWS’ ENVIROWEIGH bin weighing system waste operators are able to streamline their operations, by identifying the heaviest bins and therefore bill accurately as well as provide better reporting for customers. The result can mean millions of £s worth of savings.

Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd said: “We have been working very hard over the last year and we are delighted with the results of our efforts.  Alongside our successful established products we have some very exciting new innovations. The PurGo system takes the weights directly from each ENVIROWEIGH bin weigher and analyses the weights of every bin to produce accurate billing.  The two systems work so harmoniously together and there is definitely a demand for this kind of system in the waste management sector.”

Co-starring at the show is VWS’ latest Van Overload Protection System – VOPS2.  More accurate than its predecessor VOPS2 is also easier to install and has an in-cab indicator display giving drivers clear front and rear, net and gross, axle weights.

Continued Julian: “Overloading a van is very easy to do and currently over 20% of vans that have been stopped are running overloaded. VOPS2 is leading in its field and provides continual, reliable data giving peace of mind to van operators and drivers, by preventing overloading from occurring.”

VWS belongs to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing and traffic monitoring systems.
