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
