In 1937 Jackson Wingfield established a distributorship in Tennessee, providing mechanical scales to industry around the southeast. Today, third-generation leadership has developed its capability beyond scales to include industrial inventories, stockpile measurement, and volumetric load scanning. When any material is counted, measured, or weighed, Wingfield Scale & Measure has become the trusted provider of scale and measurement solutions for aggregate producers and manufacturers around the country.

Driven by a desire to leverage proven technology for the benefit of their clients, Wingfield has continued to add products and services to their portfolio of solutions. The WingScan advanced LiDAR technology product line is the latest addition to their offerings.

Wingfield Scale & Measure Innovates with Volume Load Scanner

WingScan is a volumetric load scanner utilising advanced LiDAR technology powered by German software company LASE Industrielle Lasertechnik GmbH. The WingScan product line includes solutions for measuring in-motion bulk material moving by conveyor belt, open-top truck, and rail.

“With WingScan, we are taking our expertise in the field of measurement to a whole new level. We are making it possible to know the precise quantities of materials across the raw material and product supply chain,” said Joseph Wingfield, President of Wingfield Scale & Measure.

WingScan-B measures the volume of bulk materials moving over a conveyor belt and relays real-time data to your facility PLC. WingScan-B allows asset tracking from initial valuation through full production to sales. Wingfield Scale & Measure has offered volumetric stockpile inventories using LiDAR since 2013. With the addition of WingScan-B, clients can now accurately track inventory before it is stockpiled.

WingScan-T applies this technology to measure in-motion material in open-bed haulage vehicles and commercial dump trucks. WingScan-T with RFID enables companies to track the movement of material in real-time during large earth-moving projects load by load. WingScan-T will give accurate volumes on inbound or outbound client trucks, tracking haul back autonomously. When mounted over a scale, the volume from the scanner used in conjunction with the scale’s weight will provide real-time, load-specific densities.

WingScan-R autonomously measures loaded product volumes in open-top rail cars, offering in-motion or stationary scan options and gives reliable accounting of inventoried material being shipped or received by rail.

“WingScan delivers real-time, accurate data to your PLC with one-touch calibration and zero maintenance. One cement plant has installed twelve WingScan-B sensors over the past two years”, says Dan Caine, Managing Director of Wingfield Measure. “The plant manager told us in a recent training session that product manufacturers always overpromise but that in this case, Wingfield’s LiDAR technology had exceeded their expectations. He told us that his electrical and maintenance teams haven’t had to touch the twelve installed WingScan-B’s which has freed up their time to focus on running the plant.”

Some of the nation’s leading manufacturers depend on Wingfield for accurate scales and industrial inventories, including GE, Bosch, Husqvarna, and MasterCraft. Some of the nation’s leading aggregate producers depend on Wingfield for accurate stockpile inventories, including Cemex, Carmeuse, and Holcim. And now many of the nation’s producers are starting to rely on WingScan for accurate load volume scans, including Cargill, Heidelberg Materials, Liberty Tire, and Argos Cement.
