This self-aligning bearing for SIWAREX WL270 K-S CA load cells is comprised of two pressure plates and the load cell, which together form a self-centering unit. This allows the top plate, and thus the load bearing implement, to accommodate horizontal displacements (e.g. due to temperature fluctuations).


If the load bearing implement is displaced by more than a specific value in the horizontal direction, measures for restricting sideways play (e.g. stops) is provided by the load bearing. Lifting of the load bearing implement must be prevented. The load cell must be ordered separately.


Heavy load versions


Suitable mounting units are also available for heavy load cells with 350 and 500 t (344.47 and 492.10 tn. l.) rated loads. These are also designed as self-centering, self-aligning bearings.


Typical applications: container and hopper scales


  • Accommodation of horizontal displacements

  • Several models for the right rated load
