FTP load cell and PV mounting kit: like Fred and Ginger



The FTP load cell is our prima ballerina: it moves nimbly and sinuously, bending or lengthening to best transmit the exerted force.

Its standard dimensions allow it to be interchangeable with colleagues worldwide, but the real étoile is still her, the most popular with approximately 30,000 pieces sold over the last 5 years.

FTP knows how to hold the stage in every situation and depending on the weight it has to bear comes on stage in two different roles:

▪ bending beam (for capacities from 75 kg to 300 kg)

▪ shear beam (for capacities from 500 kg to 10000 kg).

It is far from slender and delicate: it is used in particular on platforms with 4 load cells, for weighing pallets and large objects.


When combined with the right partner, FTP finds a perfect stage in every installation.
In its performances, it can count on the support of 6 different mounting kits, which help it best express itself in any type of application.


Among all, the ideal companion to FTP is the PV mounting kit: together they stage the finest pas de deux among our weighing components.

PV proves to be a solid and balanced partner thanks to a very special anti-tilt constraint: the self-centering foot articulated on a ball, adjustable in height.

The adjustability of the foot ensures that all the bases of the system to be weighed rest perfectly, for optimum weighing.

The self-centering system based on the ball transmits the weight vertically with no lateral friction and, always returning the force to the center, helps the load cell stay precise and repeatable.

PV changes costume, too, depending on the stage on which it is called on to perform.

It can be made entirely of AISI 304 stainless steel for the sectors that require it or it can be exhibited as PVZ, with a bottom plate and block in galvanized steel, in less demanding installations.
When the force at stake is greater, here it performs in the PV80 version, with which it supports capacities from 3000 to 5000 kg.


Together with PV, the FTP load cell treads the stages all over the world and its certifications prove it:

• OIML R60 for legal for trade use

• EAC (Euroasian Customs Union)

• ATEX, IECEX and EAC Ex for use in potentially explosive areas
