Technically, a load works as a transducer that is used to converts force or weight into equivalent electrical signals. Load is an immensely accurate device used to measures weight or force for a various different applications such as compression, tension, bending, or shear forces. The load cell device is designed such that it is stressed when a force is applied due to its strain gauge technology. This technology is a well established technology and metal foils are used to manufacture strain gauges. Under a normal regulated voltage when the load, stress is applied, an equivalent electrical output signal proportional to the force or strain is displayed. Such electrical output signal requires amplification before directly displaying the results of stress. There are many types of load cells available and are used in various applications such as compression load cell.
Compression load cell is designed for measuring pressure or pushing force or compression. It is a block designed to hold a load at a point in order to measure the compressions. Compression load cell placed beneath the object where the pushing force is measured. This device is ideal for general weighting applications, in vessel and silo weighting. Compression load cells measurement capacities ranges from 50kg to 5 tons with accuracy up to +/- 0.1%
According to the study “Asia Compression Load Cell Industry Situation and Prospects Research Report”, the increasing investment in industrial automation technologies, use of compression load cells in automotive assembly lines, logistics and R&D applications has led to a huge demand for compression load cells in Asian countries. Advanced technology such as wireless and innovative software features has led to installation of digital compression load cells in various required locations. Advanced technology in compression load cells need specialized applications to display precision signals that would accelerate the compression load cell market. Furthermore, the increase cost of raw materials and rising regulatory obligations for high quality industry rated materials is increasing the cost of various production process that hinder the growth of compression load cell market.
