Weigh modules can be easily integrated into machines, vehicles, devices and instruments. Their design incorporates principles to ensure overload and lift-off protection for safe weighing and accurate results. These results are necessary in ensuring accuracy in the heavy-duty weighing of tanks, vessels, hoppers or conveyors, with our load-cell technology built to withstand the demands of rugged industrial applications.

Weigh modules and load cells are typically used in a wide range of industries where precise measurements are required and are paramount to the success and reputation of the company. These industries include pharmaceutical, manufacturing and automotive. Precise measurements are crucial in research fields as well, especially ones that utilize laboratories for research. METTLER TOLEDO’s robust precision load cells meet all globally-required approvals and standards. Examples of weigh modules include those with canister/ring load-cell technology, which features robustness for harsh environments.

These are typically used in tank scales, vessel weighing, silo scales and truck weighing, which are difficult environments as well. Single-ended beam load cells allow you to change your structure into a scale. Beam load cells are used in multiples in floor scales, belt weighers, weighing systems, pallet scales, check scales and conveyor scales. Most METTLER TOLEDO beam load cells can be globally used in legal weighing systems, and are mostly made from stainless steel to copy with harsh industrial environments.

 

1. What is a load cell?

Load cells are typically used in a wide range of industries where precise measurements are required. They are paramount to the success and reputation of the company. These industries include pharmaceutical, manufacturing and automotive. Precise measurements are crucial in research fields as well, especially ones that utilize laboratories for research. A load cell works by converting weight into a signal that is then dispatched to a remote computer. That information is then monitored for progress or for meeting any requirements that may be stringent. Load-cell technology can be easily integrated into machines, vehicles, devices and instruments. Their design incorporates principles to ensure overload and lift-off protection for safe weighing and accurate results. These results are necessary in ensuring accuracy in the heavy-duty weighing of tanks, vessels, hoppers or conveyors, with our load cell technology built to withstand the demands of rugged industrial applications. The capacity of load cells vary, with some more appropriate for medical equipment and others more appropriate for high capacity batches such as in construction settings.


2. How does a load cell work?

A load cell works by converting weight into a signal that is then dispatched to a remote computer. That information is then monitored for progress or for meeting any requirements that may be stringent. Strain gauges, which are special electrical resistors, are attached to a load cell’s internal elements. That load cell is then placed in the equipment. As a piece is weighed, a force is applied and the load cell deforms or reacts to the force placed upon it. The strain gauges then mirror this deformity, and an electrical signal is created, eventually converting to a digital format that allows workers to monitor the weight or force. The capacity of weigh-modules load cells vary, with some more appropriate for medical equipment and others more appropriate for high-capacity batches, such as in construction settings.
