In 1937 Jackson Wingfield established a distributorship in Chattanooga, TN providing mechanical scales to industries throughout the Southeast. Today, his grandsons offer a next generation load volume scanner that changes the way we measure. With the introduction of WingScan Advanced LiDAR Technology to their existing offerings, Wingfield Scale & Measure can track inventory no matter how it moves through an operation.

Wingfield Scale & Measure: innovating with volume load scanner

Tracking material as it moves is critical to understanding production rates and reconciling inventory to sales. Wingfield provides solutions at every step in the inventory life cycle. Businesses can:

  • Gain confidence in their numbers pre-inventory using WingScan to establish the quantitative value of bulk material traveling from the source of production on conveyor belts.
  • Use Wingfield’s aerial and ground-based LiDAR to measure stockpiles of inventory.
  • Use Wingfield’s industrial scales, and/or WingScan’s Truck and Rail LiDAR systems to instantly measure outbound materials.

WingScan is a volumetric load scanner utilising advanced LiDAR technology developed in partnership with German software company LASE Industrielle Lasertechnik GmbH. The WingScan product line includes solutions for measuring in-motion bulk materials traveling via conveyor belts, open top trucks, and rail cars. “WingScan delivers real time, accurate information to your PLC with zero maintenance and one-touch calibration which frees up your maintenance team to focus on other issues,” says Dan Caine, Managing Director of Wingfield Measure.

“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 in the earliest stages of the supply chain,” said Joseph Wingfield, chief executive officer of Wingfield Scale and Measure.

Driven by a desire to give you clarity regarding your inventories, Wingfield Scale & Measure will continue to leverage technology for the benefit of its clients.
