Manufacturing loadcells since 1972
Standard Ranges 5, 10, 20 and 40kN (500kgf to 4tonnef)
Geometry: Axial strain cylinder in weather sealed case, with raised end load bearing faces. For use in compression.
The F216 is ideally suited to engineering force measurements. It is designed for easy installation, usually between two flat faces bearing on its loading rings.
The small size of this loadcell makes it an ideal force sensor for mounting in existing machinery. It has been used in presses and printing machines.
We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for fully compensated operation up to +250°C. Please consult our engineering department.
Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.
