Twistlocks VGM

Gross mass verified (VGM) for containers


Check the gross weight of your containers with our VGM twistlocks specially designed to meet the requirement to verify the gross weight of the containers stowed on a ship as stipulated in the SOLAS agreement.

Integrating our VGM twistlock weighing system for containers in the spreaders will obtain the weight received by the twistlocks through the load cells. An easy and precise system: each sensor measures the load of the twistlock and sends the information to the sender-receiver box. Also, our weighing system sends this information to a display with PC or PLC output so that the operator can verify the container's load and issue the certificate.

The load cells of our Twislocks VGW weighing verification system have an accuracy of 3000e (divisions),OIML capacities from 5 to 25 tons. Likewise, Twislocks VGM are designed to fit the existing spreaders used to lift containers.

Technical characteristics of our weighing system:
