METTLER TOLEDO load cell beam solutions enable the quick and safe integration for weighing into any machine for filling, dosing, batching, sorting by weight and check weighing. METTLER TOLEDO load cells are used in food, pharmaceutical and chemical applications.  They are available in various versions depending on the application and environment to meet requirements of OEM machine manufacturers, system integrators and end-users. A wide range of accessories are available for load cells including base plates and load introductions coping with shock and vibration.

When should I use a double-ended shear beam weighing solution?
Use this solution in applications requiring center loading to minimize sensitivity to off-center forces. The SLD430 offers an efficient solution by applying the shear beam weighing principle for moderate to high capacity applications.

Why should I use a robust bending beam load cell?
The SLD430 load cell uses a reliable strain gauge load cell design with excellent measurement stability. The high sensitivity output enables the use of economic weight indicators, providing a valuable low-cost solution. Strain gauge load cells are known for their accuracy in important applications.

What is bending beam load cell made of?
METTLER TOLEDO offers load cells in capacities ranging from 5,000 lb to 250,000 lb. As for load cell material, each version is constructed of alloy steel to ensure good performance even in difficult industrial environments. 5 ton load cell offerings are available for operations who require this specification. Load cell material is an important part of what makes our strain load cell offering reliable. Bending beam load cells can also be referred to as a strain load cell.

What additional technology or service considerations should I make when looking for new load cells or for load cell suppliers?
METTLER TOLEDO offers a complete family of electronics from simple weighing to application solutions for filling machine, stock control, batching, formulation, counting and checkweighing. METTLER TOLEDO supplies various data communication interfaces that enable our sensors and instruments to communicate with your PLC, MES, or ERP systems. As one of the top load cell suppliers, METTLER TOLEDO offers a large variety of strain gauge load cells, bending beam load cell solutions, and 5 ton load cell solutions.

What applications are strain gauge load cells used for?
A strain gauge load cell can be used for a variety of applications, because the load cell is the heart of the scale. A load cell beam is the active part of any weigh module or scale, it is the sensitive component that detects weight. A strain gauge load cell can therefore be used in applications such as simple weighing, blending, batching, inventory control, and on. Seek out load cell suppliers who can offer you the variety of load cell material varieties you require, as well as offering a variety of strain load cell capacities including 5 ton load cell.

Finally, Our extensive service network is among the best in the world and ensures maximum availability and service life of your product.
