CTL load cell: more than a BEST SELLER…a BEST FRIEND!

Solid, reliable and made in Italy. A certainty for every weighing system.

CTL load cell: more than a BEST SELLER…a BEST FRIEND!

A friend called CTL

Since 1989, the CTL compression and tension load cell has conquered many customers operating in the most diverse sectors, especially in that of machines and plants for the production of concrete and asphalt.

It is like a dear old friend.
It is safe, protective and solid.
In times of need, it never breaks your trust.

A precious ally you know you can always rely on, even in the most delicate situations.

The qualities of a trusted friend are all there:

Uniqueness - Solidity - Reliability - Availability - Proximity

It is unique

Thanks to the LAUMAS original design, and it is entirely Made in Italy.

It is strong

Its 17-4 Ph stainless steel temper combines hardness, toughness, resistance to corrosion and extreme durability over time.

It is safe

As a tension load cell, it can also act as a load limiter in lifting systems such as cranes and bridge cranes.

For some particular applications, such as overhead platforms, it can be supplied with a redundant safety system (with two independent Wheatstone bridges).


17-4 Ph stainless steel has a hysteresis cycle tending to zero.
If subjected to a force, it has the ability to deform and then return to its initial condition.
Essential feature for a quality load cell.

It comes your way

It does so, for example, with its wide range of capacities (from 100 to 12,500 kg).

Nevertheless, it also does so by simplifying the assembly operations, also thanks to the complementary accessory that often accompanies it: the EM - DADO ball joint in stainless or galvanized steel, which guarantees its correct installation and accurate weighing.

It is reliable

Detail of the LAUMAS CTL tension load cell, with drops of water on the surface: the load cell is completely water and dust resistant.


It is completely dust and waterproof with an IP68 protection rating (IP69K on request).
In the most demanding sectors, it is super-performing.


2 special covers also ensure the tightness.
The covers are laser welded in the middle of the load cell with 2 turns of spot welding and they merge with the cell into a single body, making it impenetrable.

The covers are extremely thin (only 0.1 mm).
Their design is specifically designed not to generate any mechanical friction.
In this way they protect the load cell without compromising its repeatability and linearity.

Its friendship knows no boundaries

Its certifications are a passport to enter all the different markets:

  • OIML R60 for legal for trade use
  • EAC (Eurasian Conformity)
  • ATEX and IECEX for use in potentially explosive areas
  • PAC (Pattern Approval Certificate) for legal for trade use in the Russian Federation.
