Bending beams and shear beams are used for the determination of (shear) forces and are suitable for both static (weighing technology) and dynamic (machine building) measurement projects. To determine how strong the force is in the application, strain gauges or thin-film sensors are used, which are attached on or in the measuring body. The fields of application of bending beams and shear beams are many and varied. Thus, these load cells are very often used in industrial weighing technology as well as in the areas of special machine building, factory automation and stage construction. In addition, they are used in the laboratory and process industry for the indirect determination of torques. The appropriate technical and regional approvals for these force transducers are, of course, available as options.
