James Fisher Strainstall's load cells chosen for China.
James Fisher Strainstall successfully designs, manufactures and delivers bespoke, high accuracy and large capacity load cells to China.
James Fisher Strainstall (JF Strainstall), part of James Fisher and Sons plc, was commissioned to design and manufacture a range of load cells, including a 2000 tonnes load cell, delivered to China in quick turnaround for a client’s specific requirement.
These large load cells are to be used as part of a certified test machine that will measure the strength of a wide range of materials. JF Strainstall’s high precision tension and compression load cells offer greater stability and reliability, with the 2000 tonnes cell proof loaded to 3000 tonnes in compression and accuracy at 0.3% for all load cells provided.
Simon Everett, managing director of JF Strainstall, explained that:
“Having successfully supplied load cells to the same company last year, this contract award is a reflection of our ability to meet and exceed customer demands, and clearly demonstrates JF Strainstall’s international reputation and expertise in bespoke load monitoring solutions. Our client had unprecedented requirements for accuracy which is why they came to us and we were able to exceed their requirements in both tension and compression.”
This contract further develops JF Strainstall’s offering to the Chinese market, where the potential for ongoing growth is significant for JF Strainstall as its one of the fastest growing countries in terms of revenue for the company.
