Industrial & Process Industries

Most commercially manufactured load cells are supplied within the Industrial & Process sectors. The primary use worldwide for load cells is for weighing products or ingredient that are used to make a product. Walk into most factories or shops today and you will see some form of equipment that uses a load cell for weighing purposes or for measuring force.

The number of different applications in this sector are endless. At LCM Systems we normally see a new use for load cells in this sector every day. The satisfying fact from this from our customers perspective, is that we are rarely unable to offer a solution.

If we could summarise the general use of load cells in the industrial & process sectors, they would be for quality control purposes; by testing products or ensure ingredients are mixed accurately by ensure the correct weight of each is used. Or, efficiency, where a piece of equipment can be operated at the optimum speed to gain the best manufacturing output versus quality. Also, for ensure items are made 100% to specification, by measuring the weight or force in the manufacturing process.

Our range of products is vast and has been built up over many years of experience in satisfying a myriad of strange and wonderful load cell uses. That is why our customers return to us regularly. Below is just a small selection of some of the applications we have been satisfying since 1984.
