The origin of weight in every electronic scale begins with the load cell. Cardinal/Detecto load cells are some of the most important components in each scale—translating movements in metal into useful measurement information. Most Cardinal/Detecto load cells are manufactured at the company’s load cell production facility at the factory in Webb City, MO. The company manufactures strain gauge, digital, and hydraulic type load cells. The fine-motor skills needed to wire the circuitry in each load cell needs to be incredibly high. Cardinal/Detecto’s load cell assemblers are world-class, delivering that critical link from weighing apparatus to indicator. These industry-leading load cells are included in almost every Cardinal/Detecto model, from foodservice scales to truck scales.
