Loadscan, the innovative company that is pioneering volumetric measurement and payload scanning systems, has achieved full ISO 9001 certification after a rigorous audit of its business processes and systems.
The ISO 9001 accreditation was awarded to Loadscan’s New Zealand head office and the company’s Australian branch. The company also plans to apply for ISO accreditation for its new branch office planned for the USA.
About ISO 9001 certification
ISO 9001 recognises excellence in quality management standards, and has over a million registered organisations worldwide, across over 170 countries.
ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organisation that supports innovation and the development of solutions to global issues through its standardised guidelines.
Loadscan invented the original patented load volume scanner in 1998, which today is accepted globally as the most accurate method of measuring volume of truck loads, whether that be in civil, mining, bark and mulch, or biomass industries.
Loadscan’s LVS technology allows miners to measure ore body to determine the correct volume measurements, which can be easily miscalculated when using conventional methods. The LVS provides miners with real-time detailed load information, which assists them to make better decisions that can markedly improve operational efficiency, productivity, and safety.
Perfect solution for mining and civil industries
Loadscan’s load volume scanner system resolves many of the key challenges faced by mining and civil industries.
In mining, it helps to resolve under-loading of trucks, and the effect of carry-back material left in bins. For civil construction, it addresses key issues including paying for material not actually received, and the impact of bulking and compaction factors on accurate volume accounting.
Trade certification approval
Loadscan is the only company worldwide to have achieved trade certification approval for truck volume measurements with a load volume scanning system. The company’s LVS system performs to the same accuracy as per Trade Approval Certificate 1556 (MAPPS NZ) and pattern approval Certificate 13/1/15 (NMI AUS).
“With the ISO process we now have an internationally recognised system that will drive our continuous improvement process across all business units”
Loadscan CEO Carey West said: “When we decided to implement ISO 9001 our goal was to be more efficient in our internal processes, and to ensure consistent quality in the manufacture and supply of our load volume scanners and software services.
We knew we had a robust quality system in place, but some of our key customers, especially in the mining industry, require suppliers to be officially ISO accredited. With the ISO process we now have an internationally recognised system that will drive our continuous improvement process across all business units.”
