What types of load cell are available on the market?

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
