No weight is too great: Pavone Sistemi launches a new, 1 Million Kg Load Cell for the rolling mill market

Share Article

Joining a very restricted elite of top European Companies providing solutions for weight measurements within the difficult operating environment of rolling mills, Pavone Sistemi, the leading Italian engineering company developing weighing and process solutions since 1963 for all industrial markets, has recently launched a one-million Kg Load Cell specifically designed to operate in rolling mill applications.

Hot rolling is the manufacturing process with the highest tonnage in terms of usage, and it thus constitutes not only a key element in the metalworking industry, but an extremely important market sector as well; one which Pavone Sistemi had not yet developed a specific product for, until quite recently. Its current strategy, which revolves around direct entrance into top industrial sectors and aggressive internationalization to reach the most interesting markets all over the world, dictated extensive research and development in such a direction – which culminated in the devising of a new high-performance load cell, particularly designed to withstand the exacting conditions of a hot rolling mill.

The new cell is completely built of 17-4 ph stainless steel (or alloy steel) often used in metalworking applications due to its particularly high resistance to corrosion and heat warping. Such properties are ideal for the peculiar operating conditions of hot rolling mills, and allow the load cell to have a nominal maximum load of a million kilograms, at operating temperatures reaching up to 250° C. Safe overload is certified at 150% over full scale, with an ultimate overload of 300%, guaranteeing full reliability in even the most exacting conditions.

Pavone Sistemi is one of the leading companies in the research and development of custom solutions for digital weighing systems for all kinds of applications. With over fifty years of presence in the market for load cells and weight indicators, Pavone Sistemi is constantly creating innovative systems for weighing, process control and measurement, and manufacturing the devices which animate industrial projects of all kinds, from steel mills to the pharmaceutical industry, and from packaging to the glass industry.
