Force Measuring Bearing BZA

The BZA force measuring bearings are suitable for direct measurement of the web tension that occurs in the production and further processing of web shaped materials. They are used as flange bearing housings and detect the roller bearing forces. Cost-effective made of high-strength aluminum, they are characterized by high measurement accuracy and a special durability. The measuring bearings can be mounted directly on the machine wall or with a bearing block.
