E.g. for Tension/Compressive Testing Machines
We provide an extensive range of tension and compression force sensors. Three different types are available: load cells with internal or external threads, S-type force sensors and flat sized force transducers. For example, our universal precision force sensor, type K-11, high-precision, extremely compact, easy to install and with standardized nominal value, can be optimally integrated into existing systems. Or our low-cost, but yet highly accurate S beam load cell, type K-25, which is available in very small to medium measuring ranges and optionally (available up to 10 kN) provided with a mechanical stop as overload protection against damages, caused by impermissibly high tensile and compressive forces. These sensors provide standardized analog, unreinforced strain gauge bridge output signals in mV/V. As an option, many of our tension and compression force sensors can be supplied with an extended temperature range of -40°C up to 150°C. Typical applications for these sensor types are for example, material testing machines, rope or elastic force measurement, examination of operating forces, determination of force in belt tensioners or bowden controls, industrial process monitoring at press-in, riveting, stamping, drawing operations, … .
