Compression column load cells

octogon is one of the leading distributors of high quality and precise weighing technology that is used in many areas of industry. Our extensive portfolio of load cells and force sensors, based on strain gages, impresses with high accuracy and a first-class price-performance ratio. Choose reliability and speed - our compression column load cells products are coupled with fast delivery.

Compression column load cells in stainless steel are used where compression forces are measured, and high rated loads are required. These measuring cells are constructed in the shape of a column, whereby the force is introduced centrally. Inside the column load cell there is a metallic spring that deforms under pressure. When the force decreases, the spring returns to its original position. Strain gauges on the spring body convert the deformation into a measurement signal.
