Hy-Dynamix has launched a new mobile container weighing solution called Hy-Weigh, which gives digital read outs within 10 minutes at point of packing.

 
The system can weigh containers up to 35 metric tons and uses four corner hydraulic elevation jacks, raising the container in situ and displaying the weight in increments of 50 kilograms via a digital readout. 
 
Designed by engineers at Hy-Dynamix parent company Dyer Engineering, which has a 40-year pedigree in the sector, Hy-Weigh is self-contained on its own specially designed pallet, and its control panel allows for individual corner raising and lowering. 
 
“We have designed a product which is simple, easy to use, and reliable, with no complex software or electronics,” said Graeme Parkins, Managing Director, Hy-Dynamix. “Hy-Weigh removes the need for dedicated container craneage weighing systems or weighbridges, it is easily deployed and moved around a facility, and we are very proud to say it is manufactured in the U.K.” 
 
Hy-Dynamix is a new company launched this year by Parkins, who is also Managing Director of parent company Dyer Engineering, which was established in 1977 in County Durham in the North-East of the U.K. 
 
In 2013, three years after joining Dyer Engineering as General Manager, Graeme completed a management buyout of the company along with his business partner Richard Bradley.
 
The Hy-Weigh System was developed in house as part of a range of products to facilitate and handle the moving of containers. 
 
Its sister product Hy-Lifter elevates the container and allows skating systems to be attached to the underside to allow easy movement of a container around a facility.
