Rinstrum Conweigh Partnership in Mobile Container Weighing conWEIGHr
Release date: 04 Nov 16
Conweigh and Rinstrum are delighted to formally announce a new partnership. The licensing agreement will see Rinstrum manufacture and sell the Conweigh mobile container weighing pedestals, branded conWEIGHr. The pedestal has been developed to allow customers to comply instantly with the new SOLAS shipping requirements at the point of packing. SOLAS requires the shipper to provide a VGM certificate for their containers. Weighing is performed using the conWEIGHr Pedestal set and Conweigh phone app. The VGM certificate is generated and submitted instantly and also accessible via the user's secure Conweigh VGM Cloud account.
Currently containers are generally weighed over a weigh bridge. This timing means the VGM certificate has to be prepared in the time between when the truck goes over the bridge and when it arrives at port and it offers no opportunity for repacking and no indication of load distribution. Whereas the conWEIGHr allows for the container to be weighed at point of packing (and modified for load distribution or over/under capacity) and ensure you have a safely loaded container with a certified VGM certificate prior to any form of transport also helping comply with road legislation. All of which can occur well before the truck arrives to take the container to port.
Conweigh offer an on demand service through a licensee network. The on demand service is ideal for customers who ship from various locations or small volumes of containers. A weighing is booked and a licensee comes to site to perform the container weighing and issue of the VGM Certificate. Customers shipping more containers per week should consider investing in a conWEIGHr set of pedestals to perform their own container weighing.
The conWEIGHr pedestals offer a fully mobile trade approved solution that caters for uneven ground and accommodates for angled or out of level containers on most types of ground. Low power Bluetooth is used from the pedestals back to the Conweigh application on the mobile phone. A separate lifting system is available where there is no heavy load lifting equipment onsite already or if preferred. conWEIGHr is ideal for side loader applications, straddle lifters and reach stackers.
Globally 140 million containers are shipped annually that all need to be weighed with a VGM certificate before they ship! The conWEIGHr pedestals and the online VGM certificate are ideal for mid-range operations.

SOLAS Container Weight Verification Requirement
Release date: 08 Jun 16
The updated SOLAS convention requires the shipper to provide a container verified gross weight, using verified equipment according to the state, in the shipping documentation to the terminal operator, effective 1 July 2016.
Rinstrum has been working with companies on a range of solutions to satisfy the SOLAS convention to provide verified container weights. Some countries/states have interpreted verified as trade others have not, this will affect the selected solution. Rinstrum can assist in solutions that range from weighing the truck to weighing the container:
Rinstrum existing onboard truck weighing application would also allow for container weighing (R400 Series Indicator using K491 firmware)
- The responsibility for obtaining and documenting the verified gross weight of a packed container lies with the shipper. The shipper is responsible for providing an accurate “verified gross mass” for each packed container.
Calibrated and certified equipment: means a scale, weighbridge, lifting equipment or any other device, capable of determining the actual gross mass of a packed container or of packages and cargo items, pallets, dunnage and other packing and securing material, that meets the accuracy standards and requirements of the State in which the equipment is being used.

Bagging Scale with Robotic Arm using a Rinstrum R423 Lua Programmable Indicator
Release date: 18 May 16
After a permissive start and the scale is tared. Parts and material are then robotically adds to the product, after which there is a second control trigger and weight capture. This is compared to the three check weighing bands to confirm the proper amount of material was actually dispensed. What was challenging about this project is that it is a 3 kg scale that measures 20 inches across and the tolerances are extremely tight (~½ gram). The application uses an R423 programmable weight indicator running custom Lua script.

Merrick Heley in our Design team in Australia has setup a pretty flash scoring arrangement for our lunch time table tennis - fondly named rinSCORE in keeping with Rinstrum tradition.
rinSCORE is a table tennis scoreboard that acts as sample code for a number of key Lua library features incorpating:
All on an R420 indicator running Lua!
This sample code can be used in weighing applications, for example to save and process live weight data on an external server, rather than backing it up on a USB and synchronising it after a certain time period.
