Industries We Serve


Components for Spot Welding Force Measurement

the DBSL pancake compression disk load cell from Transcell used in force measurement and weight sensor applicationsPancake Compression Disk Load Cells

Spot welding machines rely on our Pancake Compression Disk Load Cell for real-time force feedback. Available in a wide range of capacities, this popular transducer for spot welding applications offers exceptional accuracy, repeatability, and the small height required for a given force capacity. Pancake load cells mount in equipment using their integrated bolt circle.

Pancake Modules



Signal Conditioning and Analog-to-Digital Conversion

Transcell designs and manufactures external and embedded signal processing instruments. Pairing our load cells with our signal processing instruments allows the native mV/V signal from the load cell to be converted to a high-level analog or a digital signal before reaching the machine controller.

Utilizing an external signal conditioner improves the serviceability of the measurement channel while utilizing an embedded signal conditioner maximizes the ease of installation and use.

Transcell also offers a range of digital readouts that visually display real-time or peak force applied by the welding system. Many of our readouts can include multiple relay triggers so that a system will receive a high/low signal to indicates when a given force threshold has been achieved.

Instrumentation Solutions

Transcell offers a variety of load cell form factors, allowing you to choose the best fit for your spot welding system.

Resistance spot welding is a form of welding process that is primarily used in welding two or more metal sheets together. The process involves applying electric current and pressure to the spot weld area.

Changes in resistance spot welding force can introduce defects into products, limit throughput, and threaten the product’s safety. The appropriate force combined with the electrical current ensures a quality weld.

Yes. It is possible to retrofit force transducers into existing resistance spot welding equipment.

The electrode force can impact the spot welding process in many ways. For instance, a high force could cause extreme indentation, sheet separation, workpiece distortion, and asymmetrical welds.
