of an automatic machine saw in a steelwork
Steel sections need to be sawn to length after rolling. Since the sections may not have cooled down to ambient temperature by this point, the temperature of the load cell can reach 90 °C as a result of radiated heat. A load cell with an extended temperature range is chosen for monitoring the clamping forces at a V-shaped clamp designed to hold the sections. Lubricants and scale in the sensor’s immediate vicinity have no effect on the operation or service life of the load cell.
