Force Measurement and Web Tension Control
HAEHNE offers a wide range of load cells in the field of Force Measurement technology: Force Sensors (tension, pressure and ring force sensors), force measuring bolts, force transducers (tension and compression) as well as mobile force measuring devices.
The nominal forces range from 200 N up to 10 MN - in various basic designs. Depending on the requirements, the properties or dimensions of the load cells can be adapted.

Force Measurement Bolts
The load pin KMB was specifically developed for the detection of tension and compression forces, for example, in clevises, pulleys and bearings in components (e.g. straps and hooks). They have many applications in logistics, manufacturing automation and mechanical and plant engineering.
Ring Force Sensors
Force measurement rings measure medium and high compression forces with high precision. In particular, ring force sensors are suitable for use in conjunction with through shafts, for example in roll coating lines. But they are also used to measure the tightening of screws, in cutting tools or generally in press and assembly applications.
High precision Force Transducers
TEQFORT develops, produces and markets precise and highly accurate sensors for force and torque technology as well as the associated electronics. These are used in particular in inspection and measurement technology.
DMS pressure transducer for static and dynamic pressure measurement with measuring ranges up to 500 bar. With thread or SAE connection in proven strain gauge technology for dynamic and static pressure measurement of liquids and greases, e.g. B. in hydraulic applications in rolling machines or transmission test benches.
Tension and Compression Force Sensors
With compression force load cells relatively large forces can be accurately measured within confined spaces – referring to diameter and height. But they are also available in miniature design for detecting very small forces in equally small spaces.
Portable Force Measurement Instruments
For mobile measurement tasks HAEHNE has developed a special force sensor to measure the forces between rolls (also referred to as nip force measurement). But also many other load cells from the HAEHNE product program can be used for portable or mobile force monitoring. With a battery-powered amplifier, the forces can be very conveniently measured.
Application examples from various branches of industry
The force transducers from HAEHNE, based on strain gauge technology, measure static and dynamic tensile and compressive loads. All force sensors are calibrated with high-precision reference force transducers. The load cells are used, for example, in press-in devices, in excavators and cranes to monitor the load. In testing technology, force transducers are used to measure compressive force or tensile force, for example in universal testing machines. Load pins in clevises can also serve as the measuring machine element.
