You are probably familiar with the following situation:

Forces have to be measured in existing machines or crane systems.

It is not possible to use conventional load cells.

The ideal solution:

The load pin replaces the existing bearing pin. Therefore, it is manufactured exactly in accordance with the dimensions and tolerances of the existing pin.

The force affecting the load pin is measured and standardised with strain gauges.

Special load pins with integral electronics or interface can also be manufactured.

Es können auch spezielle Lastmessbolzen mit integrierter Elektronik/Schnittstelle gefertigt werden.

Upon request, we will gladly send you a series of information about our products, starting with the access to our data sheets.

How does the load pin work?

Load pins offer a simple, reliable solution to monitoring and measurement of crane load, lifting gear and machines.

One example of a specialised use is weighing liquid aluminium in tilting furnaces.

The pins are manufactured to dimensions and tolerances to meet customers‘ specifications.

2 mV/V full bridge signals, 4 – 20 mA or bus interfaces (CanBus, Modbus, etc.) can be supplied as output signals.
