Depending on the type of application for which they have been built, or the construction method used, we mention some common types of load cells that LAUMAS can offer you:
single point/off-center/for platforms - placed at the centre of a plane surface, they are capable of correctly weighing the weight force applied at any point, they are normally employed in all single cell platforms and scales
low profile compression - robust and easy to install, together with the corresponding weigh module suitable for weighing silos, tanks, hoppers, mixers and reactors even with large scale
column compression - typically used in weighbridges or with related weigh modules for silos of additional capacity, even installed outside
compression and tension - for material testing machines, special tests, etc.
tension - for creating suspended weighing systems, batching plants or to be applied on tie rods to transform old mechanical scales into electronic scales
shear beam - cells commonly used in platforms suitable for weighing small and medium-sized silos and transport systems with belts, rollers, etc.
double shear beam - typically used in weighbridges or with related weigh modules for silos of additional capacity, even installed outside
bending - cells commonly used for small-scale weighing systems with dosing machines and weight bagging and filling systems, bagging machines, filling machines, etc.
pin - applied in lifting systems on ropes or pulleys and custom made according to the customer's specifications
anchor - normally applied to monitor the tensioning force of tie rods present in civil works, dams, bridges, tunnels, etc.
pre-amplified - cells with an internal amplifier that allows a pre-amplified analogue output 0-10V – 4-20mA
