Super-precision beam cell

A precision single-bridge shear beam force transducer manufactured in die steel with electroless nickel plating, designed for use in low profile platform scales and load cell in con-rod conversions of mechanical scales. These transducers are mounted at one end and the load applied to the free end, via a through drilled hole or, with a blind hole machined to half the depth of the beam.
