Irvine, CA — April 12, 2007
Press Release — For Immediate Release

In addition to the popular Pancake Load Cell, FUTEK now offers the LCA700 Column / Canister Load Cell series for applications requiring high capacity range measurement and control in compression. Weighing only 50 lbs, its compact design is offered with up to 1 million lbs of high capacity and a high accuracy of column design flexure. The LCA700 Column / Canister Load Cell has a raised spherical surface to lower the possibility of off center loading, and comes equipped with a handle for easy carrying. Some additional features that can be added include dual bridge, amplifier, and TEDS/IEEE 1451.4. One ideal application is for high tonnage press. Major calibration houses currently use this product and accept no substitute. Similar to FUTEK’s entire Load Cell product line, this canister (LCA) Series is manufactured in the U.S. and uses metal foil strain gauge technology. For a lower capacity / miniature version please refer to the LCA300 Miniature Load Column/Canister Load Cell series.

Additionally, if you’re looking for a complete system solution, FUTEK provides various instruments including signal conditioned displays and digital load cell displays that can be calibrated with your sensor. FUTEK’s calibration services are ISO 17025 accredited by A2LA. FUTEK also offers a VCal Portable System, an in house creation that brings easy-to-use system verification directly to you as the customer, making it ideal for on-site verification and calibration of your products.
