The tension type load cell is a common force measuring element, usually with threads at both ends, which is convenient for installation and has high accuracy. Hanging installation is mostly used, which is suitable for a variety of scales and lifting equipment. The tension force sensors produced by Tianguang Company have a complete range and are well-stocked. Each sensor has been tested for fatigue and tensile strength before leaving the factory to ensure safe use. In addition, tension sensors of various sizes and ranges can be customized to fully meet your weighing requirements.
As we all know that metals will fail in a statically loaded situation if the yield strength is exceeded. The load cell is a pressure component during use, so we usually set a limit overload value, and the actual load value of the sensor during use is less than this set value.
However, in actual use, metals, including load cells, will fail due to repeated stresses, even if these load values do not exceed the limit overload value. We usually call this condition the fatigue failure of the sensor.
Fatigue failure is one of the important factors that affect the service life of the sensor. For load cells, especially tensile sensors, the safe use of the sensor is very important, which is related to the safety of users in the actual production process.
