The bending beam load cell is particularly suitable for use in small-scale container and platform scales.

The measuring element is a double bending beam made of stainless steel to which 4 strain gauges are applied. The strain gauges are arranged so that two are stretched and two are compressed.

Under the influence of the load acting in the measuring direction, the spring bodies and therefore the friction-locked strain gauges are elastically deformed. This generates a measuring signal voltage that is proportional to the load.
