The large load cells will be used as part of a certified test machine that will measure the strength of a wide range of materials. Strainstall’s high-precision tension and compression load cells offer stability and reliability, with the 2000TE cell proof loaded to 3000TE in compression and accuracy at 0.3 percent for all load cells provided.

“Having successfully supplied load cells to the same company last year,” Simon Everett, managing director of Strainstall, explained, “this contract award is a reflection of our ability to meet and exceed customer demands, and clearly demonstrates Strainstall’s international reputation and expertise in bespoke load monitoring solutions. Our client had unprecedented requirements for accuracy which is why they came to us and we were able to exceed their requirements in both tension and compression.”

This contract further develops Strainstall’s offering to the Chinese market, where the potential for ongoing growth is significant for Strainstall as its one of the fastest growing countries in terms of revenue for the company.
