Conexpo in Las Vegas: Big stage for PFREUNDT’s smallest scale

Conexpo is one of the world’s largest trade fairs for construction equipment, making it the perfect place to introduce the new PFREUNDT WK60-XS scale. With its 5” touch display, it’s the size of a smartphone, but it comes with everything required of a mobile scale.

 

The WK60 series was introduced in 2015 and has found wide acceptance on the market. With their touch displays, the scales rely on state-of-the-art technology. They are also very robust and optimally suited to challenging use in the field. These mobile scales are very simple to use – the user interface is similar to that of a smartphone or tablet. The display offers a variety of functions, which are easy to recognise and launch by means of corresponding icons. Introduction of XS now rounds out the WK60 series, and there is a perfect model for meeting each customer requirement. 

The WK60-XS is small, compact, and features an extensive package of standard features that allow for data management, data sharing, additional linked devices, and much more.

There are also a wide variety of additional features for specialised requirements and operating processes, which are available as an option depending on the customer’s needs. At the moment, the WK60-XS is available for wheel loaders, telescopic handlers, and forklifts.

Bruno Reckmann, Head of Sales at PFREUNDT, explains the reason why it was decided to premiere the product at Conexpo: “What we have here is a scale that was developed specifically for the international market, since it is not capable of being calibrated. Most countries don’t have calibration laws like we do in Germany. Other factors play a decisive role here, such as ease of installation. With the WK60-XS, we’ve succeeded in launching a product onto the international market at a very appealing price, but of course with the high standard of quality for which PFREUNDT is known. But it can also be used very well in Germany, and it’s extremely well suited for internal processes, such as for checkweighing.“

 “Conexpo in Las Vegas was a great success, and the WK60-XS meets the specific requirements that we need for the U.S. market. I’m thrilled,” said Matt Walz, a PFREUNDT distributor in North America.
