Industrial weighing and inspection manufacturer Minebea Intec has released its LC series of stainless steel load cells offering a reliable solution for demanding industry applications. 

Whether in the food, chemical, agricultural or building materials industries: single point and bending beam load cells play a decisive role in various applications.

Minebea Intec’s product series has two single point load cells PR 55 and PR 58 as well as the bending beam load cell PR 79. All cells are certified according to international standards OIML, NTEP, ATEX and IECEx.

The LC series load cells range from simple single point aluminium load cells like the PR 43 to hermetically welded variants like the new PR 55 load cell with a Y-value of up to 25,000 for high-precision applications.

The new LC Nito PR 79 bending beam load cell is an all-rounder, with load levels from 91kg to 5t, it can be used for both platform scales and container weighing.

Load cells developed in cooperation with MinebeaMitsumi

Minebea Intec worked closely with parent company Mine-beaMitsumi in the development and production of the LC series load cells. The MinebeaMitsumi Group is a listed Japanese corporation with over 92,000 employees worldwide with headquarters in Tokyo. The company is active in various industries and pro-duces, among other things, high-precision manufacturing parts such as ball bearings or motors. Through the cooperation in this project, both sides were able to optimally utilise their competences. The partnership guarantees the high quality and reliability of the load cells.

In addition to load cells, the product portfolio includes high-resolution platform scales, check weighers, metal detectors, visual inspection systems, X-ray inspection systems, price labelling systems and intuitive software solutions. 

In Australia, National Weighing & Instruments supply Minebea Intec products.
