Tension and Compression Load Cell is Ideal when Space is Restricted

Tension and Compression Load Cell is Ideal when Space is Restricted
23/05/2014

Flexibility is the key to the TCA series of tension/compression load cells from LCM Systems. Designed in-house by LCM’s talented design team, engineers can specify custom sizes and specifications to meet specific application requirements.

Known in the USA as billet load cells, the TCA series is ideal for measuring both tensile and compressive forces and their unique size makes them ideal for use where space is limited. The standard cells are provided with metric threads at each end, designed to accept spherical seating rod-end bearings. However, the versatility of this particular range means that LCM Systems can offer versions with male threads at each end, one male and one female or imperial thread sizes.

Ideal for applications such as structural testing, cable tension monitoring and press load monitoring, the load cells are constructed from stainless steel and as standard have a rated load ranging from 1tonne to 100tonne (although special versions are been manufactured with rated loads up to 1200tonne. They are weatherproofed to IP66, although IP67 and submersible versions can also be supplied, when specified.

As with all load cells offered by LCM Systems quick turnaround and fast delivery is guaranteed, while expert advice on suitable instrumentation to enhance the products and provide a complete load monitoring systems is given free of charge.

“Due to its excellent versatility, the TCA range is rapidly becoming one of our most popular for custom applications.” explains Steve Sargeant, Managing director at LCM Systems. “ There are not many UK manufacturers who produce tensile/compression load cells that have such a large range with a low profile, so we are seeing good sales volumes in applications where space is restricted. Sales are particularly buoyant in the US and China, where there seems to be a large demand for this type of product.”
