Loading Cells

caja1Load cells distributed by Molinstec are approved by NTEP and OIML-R60, which is required in applications "legal for trade" globally. Moreover, some of them are approved by Factory Mutual for use in explosive areas with approved terminals barriers. The facilities of the factories are certified by ISO 9001.

Some characteristics of the load cells provided by Molinstec are:

• Load cells and weighing assemblies from 1 lb (0.453 kg) up to 1,000,000 lbs (453.000 kg).
• Load cells in stainless steel with welded seals, hermetically sealed for harsh environments.
• Load cells sealed under IP67 or IP68 standards.
• Load cells for high temperatures (200 ° C) for applications in iron and steel plants.
• One point load cells in aluminum for low capacity applications.
• Load cells with integrated lightning protection for various applications in several atmospheric environments.

Las vigas de una sola terminal

Designed specifically for low-profile scales and process applications. These load cells are available from 1,000 pounds to 20,000 pounds. These load cells are made of alloy steel or stainless steel, depending on application needs.

Vigas de doble punta

The double point load cell has its ends fixed and load is applied in the center. These load cells are the most widely used in applications for weighing trucks, tanks and hoppers. The construction of this cell is similar to the single base, it is made of alloy or stainless steel.


Named for its S shape. These load cells are generally used in conversion kit from mechanical to electronic and for weighing hoppers or suspended tanks. These load cells are available in capacities ranging from 25 pounds to 20,000 pounds.

Puntos Únicos

These load cells are commonly used in applications for medium and low capacity, table or floor scales. They are available in capacities ranging from 1 kg to 1,000 kg. Cells of this type are commonly made of aluminum, existing also models in stainless steel


These compression load cells are ideal for high weight capacities. They are available in a variety of capacities and are typically used in applications for weighing trucks, tanks and hoppers. Since these cells bottle type are hermetically sealed, provide excellent environmental protection in hazardous environments.


International Organization of Legal Metrology is a global organization whose goal is to standardize the regulations and metrological controls applied by the weights and measures of the Member States. OIML load cells certificates can be used as a module in the standardization certificate type (TAC) across Europe.
