THE LOAD CELL AND STRAIN GAUGING SPECIALISTS

Tension & Compression Load Cells

Tension and compression occurs when a tensile stress is applied, then transforms to a compressive stress, or vice versa. The stress will go through the zero point where no stress is applied.

The load cell will operate in tension only, compression only or in both tension and compression modes. This style of load cell can lead to more flexibility in future testing.

To be aware of:

  • How the force is going to be applied to the load cell. This is how you maximise your accuracy in the system.
  • Misaligned forces can damage certain designs of load cells.
  • Be aware of how the force and re-acting force is to be applied to the load cell. Refer to the ‘Loading Mode’ sketch which can be found on every PCM load cell datasheet.
