Load Cells

Instron® is the only global materials supplier that designs and manufactures its own load cells. All Instron load cells are individually temperature-compensated and tested for accuracy and repeatability on calibrations apparatus that is traceable to international standards, with a measurement of uncertainty that does not exceed one-third of the permissible error of the load cell. Instron's Massachusetts headquarters houses the largest commercial deadweight stack in the United States, which allows Instron load cells to often exceed the level of accuracy required by most materials testing standards.
