Load cells

We offer a wide range of load cells and force sensors for measurement applications in the industrial and scientific research fields.

We represent KYOWA for load cells to scientific research applications and LAUMAS for load cells to industrial weighing applications.

Load cells are transducers that convert mechanical force or load into an electrical signal. They are used in a wide range of applications across various industries due to their ability to measure force accurately. Here are some common uses of load cells:

  • Industrial Weighing Systems: Load cells are extensively used in industrial scales for measuring the weight of materials, products, and containers. This includes applications in manufacturing, logistics, and shipping.
  • Material Testing: Load cells are employed in material testing machines to measure the mechanical properties of materials, such as tensile strength, compressive strength, and elasticity.
  • Force Measurement in Manufacturing: In manufacturing processes, load cells are used to monitor and control forces in applications like press fitting, riveting, and molding.
  • Tank and Silo Weighing: Load cells are integrated into tanks and silos to measure the weight of stored liquids, powders, or bulk materials. This is common in industries like food processing and chemicals.
  • Medical Devices: Load cells play a role in various medical devices, such as patient beds, infusion pumps, and rehabilitation equipment, where precise force measurement is essential.
  • Aerospace Testing: Load cells are used in aerospace applications for testing the structural integrity of components, such as wings, landing gear, and other critical parts.
  • Automotive Testing: In the automotive industry, load cells are employed in crash tests, durability testing, and component testing to measure forces and ensure safety and reliability.
  • Biomechanics and Sports Science: Load cells are used in biomechanical research to measure forces exerted by muscles and joints during movements. They are also employed in sports science for equipment testing and athlete performance analysis.
  • Robotics: Load cells are integrated into robotic systems to measure and control the forces exerted by robot end-effectors. This is crucial for applications like robotic surgery and precision assembly.
  • Tension and Compression Monitoring: Load cells are used to monitor tension and compression forces in applications such as cable tensioning, elevator systems, and structural monitoring.
  • Dynamic Force Measurement: In applications where forces change rapidly, load cells with high dynamic response are used. This includes testing and monitoring dynamic loads in machinery and equipment.
  • Hopper and Conveyor Belt Weighing: Load cells are employed in hoppers and conveyor belts to measure the quantity of material being transported or processed in industries like mining and agriculture.
  • Civil Engineering and Structural Monitoring: Load cells are used in civil engineering for structural monitoring of buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure to ensure their integrity and safety.
  • Packaging and Filling Machines: Load cells play a crucial role in packaging machines and filling equipment to ensure accurate and consistent product packaging.
  • Research and Development: Load cells are used in various research and development projects across disciplines to measure forces and loads accurately, aiding in the development of new products and technologies.

The versatility of load cells makes them indispensable in a wide range of applications, contributing to efficiency, safety, and precision in numerous industries.
