Montalvo Video Demonstrates Load Cell


GORHAM, ME | The Montalvo Corp., international specialists in industrial web control systems, has produced a four-minute video demonstrating load cell sensitivity. 

The video discusses the two major factors in selecting load cells: sensitivity and repeatability. Company’s Bryon Williams explains both factors by using just a 5-g weight to demonstrate how a very small tension on the ES load cell is sensed and signaled. Standard load ratings for the ES series load cells include 50, 150, and 500 lbs.

As Williams says, “The Montalvo load cell is sensitive to the very smallest changes in tension and it still offers a repeatable signal with the customer’s webs.”

President Ed Montalvo says, “The ES Series load cells are capable of detecting a wider range of tension changes and thus feature standard load ratings that are effective for a majority of applications.” He adds that load cell delivery can be made in just one week.

The ES load cells have a stainless steel body, are dust-proof (IP-54 rating), and offer what is said to be unique mechanical variance compensation. They are available in three mounting configurations: standard, flange, and split pillow block.
