product description

With the unique ability to be applied for both compression and tension-oriented applications, low-profile (or “pancake”) load cells are utilized in presses for tensile testing, as well as calibration machines worldwide. When built by Measurement Specialists, these units can achieve high capacities while maintaining a minimal size, making it a highly versatile load cell.
