Load cells have applications all across the industrial and scientific worlds. When maintained with regular calibration, these units allow users to accurately measure tension or compression forces such as weight and strain. Seen in everything from trucks scales to small medical equipment, to retail weighing scales, these versatile devices likely have a role in daily life for most people, whether they realize it or not.
Whether it’s a compression or tension load cell, at a basic level, these devices incorporate some form of a transducer which creates an electrical signal correlated to a generated force. This electrical signal is then transferred to an indicator or gauge readout. At J.A. King, we calibrate both compression and tension load cells of varying types such as hydraulic or pneumatic load cells, and strain gauge load cells.
J.A. King technicians know just how important these units can be to your process. With NIST traceable master standards capable of generating and measuring up to 100,000 lbs in compression force and 50,000 lbs in tension force, we offer ISO 17025 accredited load cell calibration so you can ensure your equipment is giving you accurate results.
