Product Overview

Single Point Load Cells

Single Point Load Cells

Single point load cells are typically offered in capacity ranges from 1 kg up to 1000 kg. Most commonly found in bench scales these load cells are specifically designed to be used in compression. They are mounted underneath the center of a platform and can compensate for off-center loads. Material of construction is aluminum or stainless steel.

S-Beam Load Cells

S-Beam Load Cells

S-beam load cells are offered in capacity ranges from 25 lb. up to 40,000 lb.

Although the cell could be used in tension or compression, it is most often used in tension. You can find these load cells in a variety of applications including in-line tensile testing, suspended hoppers, steelyard rod conversions and crane scales. These load cells are made from aluminum, tool steel, or stainless steel.

Single Point Load Cells

Single Ended Beam Load Cells

Single ended shear beam and bending beam load cells are available in capacities from 25 lb. up to 45,000 lb.

With its low profile, and high performance this load cell is perfect for floor scales, and similar flat platform weighing. They have two holes on one end of the beam that are used to hold the cell in place. On the opposite end there is a load hole that can be loaded in either direction. They are offered in aluminum, plated steel, and stainless steel.

Double Ended Beam Load Cells

Double Ended Beam Load Cells

Double ended shear beam load cells pick up where single ended shear beams leave off. Although they come in capacities as low as 1000 lb., these load cells are most often used in capacity ranges from 10,000 lb. up to 100,000 lb. When coupled with a self-checking mounting assembly, double ended shear beams can be used for heavy bins, hoppers, and silos. They are offered in painted or plated tool steel and stainless steel construction.

Rocker Column

Rocker Column

The Rocker Column load cell has revolutionized the use of load cells in truck scales, axle scales and railroad track scales. With the proper mounting hardware they are also ideal for use in weighing silos, large tanks and hoppers. They are made of stainless steel and are typically hermetically sealed. The load cell is allowed to rock thereby reducing the effect of side loads induced by thermal expansion and contraction. In essence the rocker column is self-correcting and always moving to self-center.

Planar Beams

Planar Beams

Planar beam load cells are typically used in compression applications. They initially gained popularity in the self-checkout scale and scanner scale application. Typically offered in capacities from 2 lb. up to 500 lb. these low cost, low profile load sensors are perfect for OEM weighing applications.

Other Load Cell Types

Other Load Cell Types

Load Buttons, Load Pins, and Tension link load cells are all examples of the types of special load cells we get involved in. These are just a few examples of custom load cell products we have designed in the past.

We excel at custom designing load cells specifically for your unique application. Just because it has not been done before does not mean we cannot do it. We are designing new products all the time and would love to work with you to give your Company a market advantage.
