Load Cells

Strainsert has been designing and manufacturing precision Load Cells for nearly half a century. The load cells are instrumented with the same proprietary unique strain gaging technique perfected by Strainsert and used so successfully in Strainsert Bolts, Load Pins, and Tension Links for many research, testing and control applications.
