The Load Cell Central Advantage

Load cells are the most accurate, reliable, and quick method for industrial weighing and for monitoring strain on structural supports. For over three decades Load Cell Central has been working with customers to find the type and capacity of load cell as well as the necessary system electronics ideal for their specifications and requirements. Whether the application calls for low capacity load cells or a submersible high capacity custom load cell, the solution can almost certainly be found in Load Cell Central’s selection of stock or custom products. It’s our goal to uphold the highest standards of quality and innovation, so you can find everything in one spot — from industrial and large-scale products to scales, mounting assemblies, electronics, process controls, and specialized systems.

The Right Load Cells for Your Applications

Our technicians will work with you to design a system to fit your operation, from refining industrial processes to developing precision solutions for biomedical and engineering research. We manufacture new compression, tension, universal. and submersible load cells. Our stock selection of load cells ranges from 10 grams to over a million pounds of capacity. Whether you need low capacity for parts counting scales and laboratory measurement, mid-range capacity for platform scales and tension testers, or high capacity for concrete batch plants and mooring testing, you’ll find it here. And when an ordinary solution just won’t do, we’ll design and manufacture a custom load cell specifically for your weighing system.

Load Cell Central Provides the Following Services:

Load Cell Calibration: Periodic calibration is essential for regulatory compliance, upkeep and reliability. We have the latest equipment and expert technicians to assure load cells are reliable and accurate, helping you avoid breakdowns that threaten efficiency.

Load Cell Gauging: In many cases, structural elements must be fixed with replacement strain gauges to fit the product to a specific application. Based on your requirements, we have the capabilities to custom engineer, install and test gauging solutions.

Load Cell Repair: Our repair division is experienced working with a wide range of types and capacities. Customers receive a no-charge in-house price evaluation, fast and attentive service, and conscientious after-sale support.

Assistance and Support: From the moment you contact us, you’ll know your application is in good hands. Our dedicated sales staff has an intimate knowledge of the scales and weighing applications we manufacture. We will work quickly and carefully to attend to your needs. Best of all, our commitment to customer service doesn’t end when a product leaves our facilities.
