Thru-Hole Load Cells

thru hole load cellsLoad Cell Central’s thru-hole load cells, often referred to as donut load cells or load washers, are typically used to measure the force acting on a fastener or shaft, such as a bolt or in a hydraulic press.  Constructed of stainless steel, our thru-hole load cells are ideal for quality control in industrial production applications.

For example, suppose a specific bolt in your manufacturing process must be torqued with a consistent force.  Using a donut load cell as a load washer fits this application very well without resorting to low-availability torque load cells.  Thru-hole load cells also work well for applications where a shaft or wire rope is suspended through a surface.  This allows a tension force to be measured in compression by our donut load cells.

Standard capacities for thru-hole load cells begin as low as 100 lbs and reach as high as 100,000 lbs.  Custom versions can reach well over 1 million  lbs in capacity.

Pairing our donut load cells with our indicators, signal conditioners, or load cell amplifiers gives you a complete setup ready to interface with an existing or standalone system capable of controlling your manufacturing process.

With Load Cell Central’s 24/7 technical support, attentive sales technicians are always ready to help you out of a jam.
