UMGZ – Standard force measuring block

  • Overload protection up to 10-times nominal force, measuring body from stainless steel
  • 8 sizes with nominal force from 0.5 to 100 kN (112 to 22500 lbf.)
  • Measuring range 30:1, accuracy class 0.5 %

The force sensors of the UMGZ-Series, designed for the measurement of material tension on continuous processing lines, are used in combination with standard pillow blocks. Block mounting is simple utilizing four fasteners into the bottom surface. force measuring blocks of the UMGZ-Series feature longevity, precision and reliability. The UMGZ-Series is available in two versions, horizontal and vertical, and thus can be specified for use in any mounting orientation and strip wrap configuration. With the superior performance of the UMGZ-Series, accurate tension readings are obtained even with low web wrap angles and high roll weights.
