Fitting the hands

on analog instrument spindles

  • Built-in overload protection
  • Load cell insensitive to lateral forces
  • Small measuring ranges available
  • Detachable threaded load adapter


In instrument-making and precision engineering, sensitive parts such as hands and needles need to be fastened to spindles. Handling must be delicate enough to avoid damaging these intrinsically lightweight components yet firm enough to ensure they sit securely in place. The 8432 load cell chosen here, with integral mechanical overload protection, is designed to measure small loads in a very sturdy package. In addition, any lateral forces that inevitably arise in this process and produce a bending moment on the sensor axis have no impact on the measurement accuracy.
