Axtec to display on-board axle load indicator for artics at CV Show

Axtec, a supplier of axle weighing systems, will display its on-board axle load indicator for artic drivers and operators at the CV Show.

The firm said the system was easy to use, simple to install, and tamper-proof, having no external controls, knobs, buttons or switches. It added that no settings can be accidentally changed, and no driver training is required.

It uses surface-mounted electronics and a colour display with integrated touch screen.The Runcorn-based company already markets a similar device for operators of van and LCV rigid fleets.

Axtec MD Keith Gresham said: “We know an overloading offence can have a big impact on an operator, however inadvertently it was caused. Axtec On-Board is a low-cost, simple, accurate and reliable product that can help miminise, if not eliminate, risk.”
