S-Beam Load Cells

Symmetrical force sensors with strain gauge measurement

Due to their good dynamic behaviour, symmetrical design and slim construction, these S-shaped force transducers are often used in materials testing machines, for monitoring traction cables or hoists, as well as in medical technology. They have a central thread at the top and bottom for measuring force and torque in tension or compression.

Their simple design makes S-Beams a real alternative to expensive force sensors. Stainless steel S-Beams should be used for dynamic loads, outdoor use or where strong and aggressive substances are regularly used. Where the load is purely static, an aluminium version will usually be sufficient.

We offer a wide range of standard S-Beam sensors and understand the advanced requirements for demanding applications. Our many years of experience and extensive application know-how are available to you for optimum design-in of special measurement tasks, even for small quantities.
