The CTL compression and tension load cell is like a long-standing special friend.
A precious ally, on which you know you can always rely, especially in the most delicate situations.
Since 1989 it has gained the trust of a great many customers, especially in the field of machines and plants for the production of concrete and asphalt, and more besides.
There are all the qualities of a trusted friend:
UNIQUENESS – SOLIDITY – RELIABILITY – SAFETY – AVAILABILITY – CLOSENESS.
̶ CTL is unique, thanks to the LAUMAS original design, and is entirely Made in Italy.
̶ CTL is strong.
With its strong 17-4 PH Stainless Steel, it combines hardness, toughness, resistance to corrosion and extreme durability.
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 - an essential feature for a quality load cell.
̶ CTL is reliable, whatever the environment.
It is completely watertight, with an IP68 protection rating and IP69K on request, therefore super-performing especially in the most demanding sectors.
Its tightness is also ensured by 2 special covers, laser welded in the middle of the load cell with 2 turns of spot welding. The covers meld in a single body with the cell and make it impenetrable.
Their extreme thinness (only 0.1mm) and their specially crafted design to generate no mechanical friction enable the covers to protect the load cell without compromising repeatability and linearity.
̶ CTL is safe.
As a tension load cell, it can also act as a load limiter in lifting systems such as cranes and bridge cranes. In some particular applications, such as overhead platforms, it can be supplied in a version with two independent Wheatstone bridges (redundant safety system).
̶ CTL comes your way.
It does so, for example, with its wide range of capacities, from 100 to 12500 kg; but it also simplifies assembly operations with the complementary accessory that often accompanies it: the special steel ball joint that guarantees its correct installation for accurate weighing.
̶ CTL’s friendship knows no boundaries.
With its certifications it has its passport to enter all the different markets:
CTL: the trusted load cell for every weighing system…more than a BEST SELLER, a BEST FRIEND!
All the advantages of custom load cells, now also for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
