Novatech Measurements Limited has been manufacturing high quality loadcells in the UK since 1972. Having design, machining, strain gauging, assembly and calibration all at one factory allows us to respond rapidly to customer requirements for standard products or special loadcells designed to meet specific requirements. We are happy to produce variants on our standard catalogue range of more than 50 product families or to design something completely new to meet your requirements.

The items listed below give an idea of the scope of the work that we have under-taken for a wide range of customers. Our loadcells are used in a wide variety of fields including automotive testing, medical research, aerospace, the nuclear industry, production machinery and product testing.

  • All common loadcell geometries including column, donut, beam, shear pin, pancake and diaphragm.
  • Measuring ranges 0.1N to 10MN (10gf to 1000tonnef).
  • Sealing up to IP68.
  • Submersible designs for pressures up to 600bar.
  • Operating temperature range -40°C to 250°C with modulus compensation.
  • Sizes down to 10mm diameter.
  • Connector or flying lead.
  • Multi-axis loadcells.
  • Static torque transducers.
  • Special end fittings, mounting plates and adapters.
  • Fail-safe housings.
  • Weighing platforms.

We offer in-house loadcell calibrations from 0.1N to 1000kN (10gf to 100tonnef) in tension and compression, extending to 2000kN (200tonnef) in compression only that are traceable to European standards. Some calibrations are possible at temperatures up to +250°C. Calibrations outside of these force ranges can be arranged through appropriate calibration laboratories.

We can also calibrate static torque transducers from 10milliNm to 1000Nm.

As a manufacturer we can repair and recalibrate all our loadcells, both standard and bespoke designs. We also recalibrate and repair loadcells made by other manufacturers.

In addition to manufacturing loadcells and torque transducers we also supply a range of basic instrumentation. The range includes amplifiers and mains and battery powered loadmeters.

Details of our standard product range can be found in the products section.

Our sales department can supply printed versions of the data-sheets for all of our standard product range.

For customers who only make occasional force measurements we operate a loadcell hire service at or you can contact our sales department to discuss your requirements.
