Some of the heaviest equipment in use throughout industries today are rail mounted. The reduced friction and better security that comes with rail mounting more than offsets loss of flexibility in movement. Nevertheless, proper weighing of rail mounted machines is essential for correct functioning. Without this crucial step, you risk imbalances in the machine resulting in inefficiency at best and collapses at worst.

For advice on your specific requirements for field engineering services and the operation of specialised equipment.
Weighing rail mounted machinery is in many cases a daunting task. Even more than freely-moving machines, rail mounts demand patience and care when measuring and conducting field engineering. Our team is exceptionally trained in how to weigh and measure rail mounted machinery safely. In some cases, this involves climbing jacks, hydraulic lifts, or load cells. Our engineers help design bespoke equipment usable for tremendously heavy machinery in numerous industries, including mining, oil and gas, and transportation.
In many cases, weighing rail mounted machines means working with stackers and reclaimers in mine sites, as well as ship loaders and container crates in ports. Even if your business works with unusual machinery, you can safely rely on the experience and ingenuity of our team of engineers. Through our decades in operation, our team has had exposure to nearly every conceivable scenario that required weighing and certification.
If you face uncertainty related to your heavy machinery for use or transport, Marginal Field can assist you. We will replace those questions with answers and enable your team to succeed with the work at hand. Contact us today to learn how we can help you prosper.
