Bending/ Shear Beam

Bending beam load cell and Shear Beam Load Cells available in different materials, precision and protection classes provide secure and satisfied performance for various weighing applications.

Bending Beams are ideal to use in platform scale adapting to the construction of multi-load cell scales, belt scales, sacking and filling systems to meet weighing needs where goods are produced and/or transformed. A Bending Beam Load Cell consists of a double bending beam with applied strain gauges, which converts any changes in the ohmic resistance due to the applied force into electrical voltages. It can be utilised for a number of static and dynamic measurement tasks including Load deflection curve, dosing system, load carriers, tank crane scales and tension force measurement in wire or thread winders. Our Bending Beam Load cells have strain gauges attached to them that convert any changes in their ohmic resistance caused by the applied force. The precise value of output voltage is specified in the accompanying calibration protocol.

Shear Beam Load Cells with single-ended or double-ended mounting options and low profile design are suitable for high accuracy platform scales, hopper scales and process weighing applications such as catalyst vassels, batching plant, truck weighers and belt conveyors. These load cells are made of stainless steel and provide a calibrated signal output, for multi-load cell mounting. Our Shear Beam Load cells are generally made of stainless steel with extremely flat design. They are also available as low-profile shear beam load cell designed for industrial platform scales and industrial platform scales.
