"Mobile weighing is addictive. Once you have it, you don’t want to be without it anymore."

- WOUT VAN RIJNSBERGEN, MANAGING DIRECTOR

Waste flow registration

Van Rijnsbergen-Liebregts rents out waste containers, collects waste and recycles it back into raw materials. Every year some 35.000 ton of industrial waste, and construction and demolition waste passes through the Zaltbommel facility. On peak days, 100 to 125 containers are offloaded and processed. The company also provides storage and handling facilities for construction debris, wood, green waste, cardboard and paper. Waste processing today is subject to ever more strict environmental requirements. Not only do companies like Van Rijnsbergen invest in cleaner installations, they are also obliged to maintain a precise waste flow registration.

Weighing data registered in a central database

Full waste containers are collected by freight truck and transported to the hub in Zaltbommel. At the hub, the forklift driver uses his PDA handheld terminal to scan the container number for ID, then lifts the container off the freight truck. In the same instant, the scale on the lift truck weighs the container. The UniMobile software on the PDA collects both qualitative information (barcode ID) and quantitative information (weight). It sends weight, client number and waste flow type back to the UniWin PC, where the data set is registered in a central database, processed and reported.

Saving time with RCS Plus

The lift truck empties the container at the disposal site and moves on to offload the next one. This new way of working brings Van Rijnsbergen-Liebregts huge time savings. It used to be that every single container was weighed on a weigh bridge, where the lift truck was often waiting its turn. Now offloading the container, weighing it and registering the data in the computer system is one single process flow.

APPLICATION
Checking incoming goods


Checking incoming goods
At goods reception, incoming shipments are checked and registered. Often it is being checked whether the right type of goods and the right quality is supplied, but not whether it is the right amount. And in these days of small stocks and just-in-time deliveries an incomplete shipment has immediate consequences for the production process. That costs money. With a mobile scale integrated in your pallet truck or forklift truck you check incoming goods while they are being offloaded from the lorry. If an incomplete delivery is signaled, you can react on the spot. Thus you prevent stock differences and interrupted production processes.
