product description

Providing precise measurements for difficult or complex weighing applications, tension links are great for testing cranes and accompanying calibration kits. Measurement Specialists manufactures these units so that you may easily calibrate your entire weighing system, especially when putting known weights is otherwise problematic or unfeasible.
