Compression Load Cell - Heavy Duty

Compression Load Cell - Heavy Duty


Heavy duty weighing, rolling mills, industrial platform, calibration of test machines, load measurement for geophysical work such as plate bearing tests, measuring the load applied in presses.

Design Features

The standard design incorporates a captive integrated self-aligning top platen to ensure accurate measurement of any miss-aligned loads. The spherical faces of the platen are lapped to ensure accuracy for the most demanding calibration standards.


These load cells can be supplied with a factory works calibration certificate traceable to national standards or a NPL calibration certificate. They can also be supplied tested and ready for calibration by the customers preferred test laboratory.


Carry handles (for larger capacities)
Plug and socket arrangement for separate cable Loading pad (for ISO376 calibration)
Carry case
Various display units to suit application
