VEI Group’s 30 years of successful onboard weighing technology solution provision
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
VEI Group is, this year, celebrating 30 years as a leading onboard weighing technology solutions manufacturer. Thousands of the Sandrigo, Vicenza, Italy-based company’s products have been applied on loaders, excavators, articulated and rigid dump trucks, fork lift trucks and underground LHDs since 1986.
Latest models from VEI include the millennium5, helperX and helperXE – all of which are selling well worldwide.
Millennium5, a rigid and articulated dump truck payload monitoring system, is VEI’s biggest-selling model. The company’s hi-tech, heavy-duty sensors are said to be installed on the Millennium5 in such a way so as to provide an accurate weight while loading and operating in the toughest of site conditions.
Whether you use the USB or wireless data transfer, production information is located in a single database, from where it can be exported to where it’s needed.
Using VEI’s ipotweb.com site, you can generate different types of reports, tracking down in real-time, your inventory, production analysis and machine productivity. Production data from ipotweb.com is available on your smartphone, tablet, or PC wherever you are.
Launched at bauma 2016, and for excavator applications, helperXE allows the arms, bucket and the excavator inclination to be controlled by inclination sensors. This does away with the need for mechanical moving parts between the arms which can be easily damaged.
VEI says that with helperXE installed onboard, excavator operators can be sure that each bucket is weighed, the load is within the allowed limits, and the production is under control. The moved quantity is transmitted remotely for quarrying and mining haulage analysis and stock inventory via iportweb.com.
VEI says its products can be installed on a variety of machines, working in different applications. In each one, VEI products are said to deliver superior accuracy to improve efficiency of the load-out, production processes, sales analysis, inventory updates and productivity. VEI also stresses that its durable, long-lasting scales can be easily transferred between machines of the same kind.
An indication of the company’s success over the last three decades can be found in the fact that it now has 53 trained distributors in 60 countries.
