Load Cell Glossary

Load Cell Information

From confirming cargoes meet transportation requirements to monitoring structural integrity, load cells play a pivotal role in our lives. They precisely and accurately weigh or measure inputs, outputs and applied forces, helping improve production and safety and controls.

At Coti Global, we specialize in the design and manufacture of high-quality load cells tailored to the customer. Combining resilient materials with innovative engineering and industry-leading production capabilities, the equipment we fabricate is long lasting and produces accurate results. A testing and measurement marketplace leader, our product range includes:

  • Compression canister load cells
  • Universal and compression load cells
  • Single-point load cells
  • S-Beam load cells
  • Single-ended beams
  • Double-ended beams

Load cells are transducers designed as measuring devices, and they gauge and monitor compression, tension, and shear forces by converting sensed mechanical force into measurable electrical signals. They have a wide variety of uses, depending on the application. Distribution centers determine loaded-pallet weight with load cells, while food processors utilize them to precisely measure ingredients and distribute them accordingly. Load cells are often used for:

  • System calibration
  • Fatigue testing
  • Push and pull testing
  • Flow measurement
  • Bridge beam tension strength testing
  • Railcar weighing scales
  • Truck scales

Providing comprehensive solutions that help keep commerce moving, Coti Global is proud to manufacture load cells specifically designed to perform optimally in a wide array of industries. Those include:

  • Aerospace
  • Agriculture
  • Automation
  • Automotive
  • Manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Original equipment manufacture, or OEM

Dedicated to delivering quality products customers can trust, Coti Global load cells are National Type Evaluation Program certified. With a customer-focused approach, we strive to provide:

  • Immediate service
  • On-time delivery
  • Application-specific solutions
  • Reliability

From boutique operations to large-scale production facilities, off-the-shelf products to custom designs, you can trust Coti Global to meet your load cell needs.

Our compression-canister load cell range has been developed to suit a variety of weighing tasks.

Single Ended Beam Load Cells

Our single ended beams are available in alloy, stainless and stainless steel welded versions. Can be used in a number of applications.

Our canister style load cells are robust and often hermetically sealed construction with spherical radius on one or both ends. Ideal for single- or multiple-cell applications.

Also known as brick load cells, they are often mounted directly under a platform used to weigh loads. Single-point load cells gauge and monitor compression. 

Double-ended beam load cells measure the force of weight applied to its center. These are often utilized in heavy-duty applications.

S-beam load cells can measure both tension and compression, and are prized for their performance and versatility. Wide range of capacities available.
