Load pins typically replace existing load bearing pins in static fixings and support structures, or axles supporting rotating parts. With known dimensions and load potential of the replaced component, load pins enable simple conversion to a load measurement system with little or no modification to the existing structure.
Although often limited in accuracy compared to most ‘inline’ load cells, they are suitable for low to medium accuracy measurement systems, commonly used for load limiting and overload protection in lifting and material handling equipment, with safety of people and machinery in mind.
Using our experience of custom designed products, we work with our customers to find the most suitable yet cost effective solution, for a single installation or to incorporate load measurement into their ongoing product supply.
