Avery Weigh-Tronix has produced a white paper exploring weighing technology.

It focuses on the development of the weigh-bar, which it claims is up to ten times more reliable than loadcells.

First developed in the 1960s, the weighbar is an all-electronic strain gauge weight sensor designed to measure the applied load accurately without the problems associated with other technology. It produces reliable and repeatable readings, while its weatherproof and shockproof design allows it to withstand environmental challenges.

The white paper explains the technology behind the weighbar and how it overcomes issues such as end loading, side loading and torsion. It also outlines some more recent advances in the technology.
