Understanding Weighing Cell Technology

In today’s industry, two weighing cell technologies are predominately used.  They are strain gauge and electromagnetic force compensation (MonoBloc) technology.  MonoBloc weighing technology ensures the highest level of counting accuracy and repeatability for reliable results. Generally, MonoBloc load cells are ten times more accurate than standard load cells with strain gauges. Precision, Ruggedness, and the […]
