Miniature Stainless Steel Load Link rated to 5000kg

7th Sep 2017

Following on from last week’s post about very small load cells, we are continuing the theme this week with a tiny load link we have just delivered to a customer in Hong Kong. Due to space restrictions, the load link dimensions were critical, and could not exceed a length of 130mm. The load link rating required was 5000kg, and in order to achieve this capacity (while maintaining a proof load of 150% and ultimate breaking load of 300%) the 17-4PH stainless steel used was heat treated to H900. Accuracy achieved was around 0.1% of rated load. Whether the requirement is for a miniature load link or for high capacity applications, LCM Systems is able to design and manufacture a product to suit.
