At the heart of every weighing system is load cells of different kinds. Amongst the several types of load cells available, shear beam load cells have become increasingly popular owing to their low cost, simple construction and excellent performance. These load cells, which are designed to sense force or weight, are manufactured from nickel plated alloy steel with IP rating to best fit the applications in harsh environments. With good resistance to side loads, shear beam load cells are being used in a wide range of applications of medium or large capacity. These include process weighing, filling machinery, industrial floor scales, tank and silo weighing, and onboard weighing on vehicles, big-bag (FIBC) filling machines and conveyors, among others.
