Load cells and force sensors

The heart of any weighing or measuring system is the load cell. You will need load cells and force sensors in basically any application where forces or weights need to be measured or monitored.

We can offer you your own Zemic private label with or without OIML approvals. If our wide range of standard products does not meet your requirements our engineering staff of over 225 engineers are ready to design a special product according to your specifications.

Our experts are ready to give you more information and help you make a choice.

What kind of load cell do I need?

At Zemic Europe we define different load cell types. The selection of the type of load cell is mostly based on the kind of application you have. For example: when you have a small to medium sized platform scale, the use of single point load cells is most common. 

When you are looking for a load cell for a weighbridge you will need another type. The most common used type of load cells for weighbridges are compression load cells. 

In the table below you can see an overview of load cell types:

 Type                        Capacity range               Application

 Single Point load cells  0,3kg up to 2t   Small to medium sized platform scales

 Planar Beam load cells  6kg up to 130kg  Medical and retail scales with low built-in height

 Bending Beam load cells  5kg up to 50t  Platform weighing scales and small weighing bunkers

 Shear Beam load cells  100kg up to 50t  Scales applications in nearly every industry such as process, medical, retail and agricultural

 Dual Shear Beam load cells  2,3t up to 113,4t  Trucks and truck scales, tank and weighing bunkers

 S-type load cells  25kg up to 30t  Applications with static and dynamic forces, such as cranes

 Compression load cells  500kg up to 800t  Weighbridges, large weighing platforms and bunker scales

 Ring Torsion load cells  60kg up to 60t  High accuracy weighing bunkers, silos, platforms, and pallet scales

 Spoke Type load cells  1t up to 700t  Low installation height, relatively high precision, for measuring large forces

 Onboard load cells  6t up to 10t  Weighing on board of a truck, tractor, or other vehicle

 Load pins  0,5t up to 200t  Measuring dynamic, static, and hoisting forces

 Weigh pads  650kg up to 15t  Weighing cars and determining the centre of gravity of airplanes

 Custom-made solutions
