Micro Weighing Solutions weigh pads used for Guinness World Record challenge

Micro Weighing Solutions push weighing technology boundaries.

On 20 June 2023, the record-breaking IVECO eDAILY van embarked on a monumental challenge, towing an enormous load to claim its place in the Guinness World Records.

The company, whose northern operations is located on the Drum Industrial Estate in Chester-Le-Street supplied the precision weigh pads that were used to measure the weight of the vehicles involved.

The stage was set as an IVECO X-Way Strator truck, designed for Essex haulage company G&B Finch, stood poised to prove its strength.

The specially engineered truck can transport loads of up to 150 tonnes, making it the perfect companion for the eDAILY’s record attempt.

The challenge commenced with the trailer carrying a colossal Collard Group earth-mover, weighing over 50 tonnes, and an additional seven tonnes of ballast.

Completing the 153-tonne road train was a fully-loaded IVECO X-Way 8×4 tipper truck and an all-terrain airport fire truck. Together, they formed an awe-inspiring spectacle ready to conquer the Guinness World Records.

Behind the wheel of the record-breaking eDAILY was none other than Britain’s current Strongest Man, Adam Bishop.

The eDAILY set off on its groundbreaking journey down a 100ft runway at Blackbushe Airport in Surrey.

The precision weigh pads supplied by European partner, Dini Argeo, played a crucial role in ensuring adherence to the Guinness World Records regulations.

“We are extremely proud to have been a part of this extraordinary event, providing our expertise in weighing technology to support the record-breaking journey of the IVECO eDAILY,” stated Harry Farnsworth, an engineer who was on-site alongside Adam Cooper.

“Being present to facilitate the weighing process was an exhilarating experience. Our precision weigh pads ensured accurate measurements of the towed vehicles, playing a vital role in meeting the strict regulations set by Guinness World Records. Witnessing the eDAILY and its supporting vehicles successfully conquer the challenge was a testament to the strength and reliability of our weighing solutions.”

The IVECO eDAILY’s Guinness World Record challenge showcased the potential of electric vehicles in the towing industry.

The collaboration between Micro Weighing Solutions, IVECO and other industry experts exemplifies the spirit of innovation and determination that drives progress in the weighing industry.
