MAGPOWR Launched a Larger Thin Load Cell 

Available in two sizes, MAGPOWR TLC load cells are extremely accurate devices used to measure web tension in any unwind, rewind or intermediate web processing application. Delivering precise web tension with low temperature drift due to a full Wheatstone bridge construction, the load cells allow for force measurement and 10 times overload protection in both force directions.
With a low profile design, space between the machine frames dedicated to the load cell is minimized. The load cells can also be mounted on the outside of the machine frames, eliminating any space required for the load cells.
