Mechanical load cell

Load Cells

Load cells are sensors that convert force into an electrical signal. WIKA offers load cells with force measurement ranges from as low as 0-10 N up to 0-500,000 N (Newton is a unit of force). Higher range load cells can measure heavier loads.

WIKA load cells are available in different designs like beam, S-type, and pancake load cells. Each model has specific force ranges available. Load cells with higher force ranges tend to be larger and more heavy duty. Lower range load cells can have smaller, more compact designs.

The choice of load cell force range depends on the intended application and maximum weight, or force expected to be measured.

Load pin

Load Pins

Load pins are load cells designed as pins that can measure forces in tension or compression. OEM Automatic offers load pins with force ranges from as low as 0-1 kN up to 0-500 kN.

Lower capacity load pins from 0-5 kN are well-suited for test stands, material testing machines, and laboratory equipment. 

Medium capacity units from 0-20 kN to 0-100 kN are used in mechanical presses, tension measurement, vehicle scales, and process monitoring.

High capacity load pins from 0-200 kN up to 0-500 kN are designed for heavy industrial environments like large presses, construction equipment, and crane scales.

Our load pins have stainless steel bodies and high accuracy strain gauge sensors inside.

force transducer

Force Transducer

Our compression force transducer is designed for compact design and tension. It has high protection against shock and vibrations and is used in harsh environments. This force transducer is useful for machinery, vehicles, tractors, loaders, lifting devices, cranes and lifts.

Force sensor

Shear Force Sensors

Shear force sensors are designed to measure shear or lateral forces. We have 2 types of shear force sensors.

The WIKA shear force sensor provides higher range side load measurements while the shear beam sensor is an alternative solution for low profile shear sensing. Both sensors specialised for transverse force measurements.

Shear force sensors are used for side force measurements on vehicles, platforms, and structural joints.

Shear beam force sensors are used where space restrictions prevent use of shear force pads and has easy integration into tight spots. Applications include vehicle suspension load testing and shear measurements in constructions.
