If you can’t find the right product for your weighing application, you can call us.

Kobastar is capable of producing all kinds of special loadcells.

We have rich engineering experience to guide you through the manufacturing process.

Quality load cells at global scale for all weighing applications, as well as special production custom made loadcell.

What are Load Cell Types?

Many different systems are included in the loadcell category, from electronic scales used for home weight measurement to devices capable of measuring up to 2000 tons. These systems generally vary according to upper and lower weight limits and usage areas. Load cells have some categories in terms of basic operating principles:  Compression Type, Single Point Type, Shear Beam, Dual Shear Beam, Single Ended Beam, S Type, Load Pin, Overload Load Cells, Strain Sensors, Web Tension Control, Load cell for Feed Mixers (Livestock Feeding Weigh Bar)

Why should you choose Kobastar ?

Kobastar uses high quality special alloy steels and aluminum materials to ensure that your weighing applications are reliable, robust and accurate.

We use stainless steel materials for industrial hygienic environments such as Food, Chemistry etc.

You can use IP67 and IP68 protection class loadcells for washable or humid environments.

Alloy steel models are hardened by heat treatment and cleaned by sandblasting method.

All surfaces are coated with Nickel homogeneously and become more resistant to corrosion.

Aluminum Load cell models are made of hard anodized coating for corrosion resistance.

All Loadcell are tested according to the test procedures specified in the OIML R60 recommendations.

Standard PVC flame retardant outer sheath, Aluminum and tinned copper braided shielded cable are used in our products to protect against external noise and signals.

Optionally, armored or exproof silicon cables can be preferred.

Armored cables are more resistant to external influences and provide protection from rodents such as mice.

Silicone cables provide excellent heat shield in high temperature working environments, can be used up to 180°C continuous temperature and,

Short term up to 220°C. Silicone cables are used in both high and low temperatures up to -60°C thanks to their excellent climate resistance.

During the production phase, tests are carried out in -10°C to 40°C climate control cabins and work calibrated in all climatic conditions from Siberia to Ecuador.

Each loadcell is tested on dead weight or hydraulic force testing machines.

KOBASTAR LOAD CELL manufactures and sells all its products in its factory located in Konya with the assurance of 100% Turkish.

We can do OEM production if there are certain quantities on order basis.

KOBASTAR is the global brand of Loadcell and Weighing Sector.

For detailed information about our load cells

In areas such as industry, logistics, mining, production, and supply stages, it is necessary to perform weight measurements in a qualified manner to obtain rapid results. The most reliable systems for weight measurement are load cell systems. Cells with different varieties provide that the weight of objects is measured quickly and accurate results are obtained.

What is Load Cell?

The history of weighing systems goes back thousands of years. Thus, weight measurement has always been a required area. Different methods were used to measure the weight of objects. Systems that measure with pressure give faster, more accurate,  and reliable results than others. Weighing systems known as mainspring scales are examples of these measuring devices. Load cell has a similar feature to these systems.Objects on the loadcell apply pressure to the surface. This pressure is converted into weight data by electrical systems. This mechanism is the basic working principle of the system known as loadcells. Electronic weight systems that measure according to the force and pressure of the objects on it are called this way. The devices in question have a great variety according to their usage areas and weight limits.

How does it work?

According to the law of gravity, each object exerts a certain force on the base. Weight is a measure of this power. Objects are heavy in the proportion of the force they exert on the surface. The load cell is based on this principle and converts the force exerted by the objects on them into weight values on a kilogram basis with the help of electrical circuits. The measurements of these signal converter devices are made with an electrical scheme known as the Wheatstone Bridge.

This system is based on a comparison of pressure values taken from different cells. Cells located in different parts of the surface convert the pressure exerted by the object into resistance value. When these resistance values are compared, the average result is considered the weight of the object. Thanks to this working mechanism, the electro-mechanical device gives fast and accurate results.What Should You Pay Attention While Choosing The Product?

A minor error in weight measurements can cause serious problems. So you need to make sure that it gives the correct results when choosing a load cell. The system you have chosen must have been checked. Also, the product you have been chosen must be suitable for its intended use. For example, you should choose models that can be placed on the belt to meet your weight measurement needs in the mining area. You can use loadcell types that can be integrated with other systems for people and elevators.

What Are the Benefits of Kobastar Products?

Kobastar products are produced with quality materials and advanced technological equipment. Load cells to be used in the food and food industry are made of stainless steel. Systems produced by Kobastar are suitable for use in different climates. t can work between -10 and +40 degrees without any problem. It is equipped with resistant cables that are protected against external factors. It can measure for a long time without any damage. All these sensor transducers go through calibration and measurement stages before they are put up for sale.

Load Cell Price

The price of a load cell varies depending on its capacity, accuracy, and type. Simple and low-capacity load cell sensor are generally more affordable, but high-capacity, precision, and custom-designed load cell products can have higher costs. Prices typically start from a few hundred dollars and can go up to thousands of dollars.

How to maintain loadcell?

Loadcells are generally maintenance-free, but must be cleaned regularly and calibrated periodically for long life and accurate measurements. They should also be reviewed regularly to check for mechanical damage or deformations.

How to calibrate a load cell?

Load cells are usually calibrated at the factory, but periodic calibration may be required after installation. Calibration is done to verify the relationship between the measured force and a specific output value. This is usually done using a known value of a particular weight.

How to install load cells?

They are usually mounted to a surface or structure with a specially designed mounting bracket. Installation is important for the load cells to detect force correctly and should generally be done according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
