Coperion K-Tron pioneered vibrating wire technology for the process industries, and today continues its leadership with the Smart Force Transducer II and III. The K-SFT-II/III represent the leading edge of process weighing technology and form a solid foundation for the continuing evolution of the art and science of weighing.
In 1976 Coperion K-Tron introduced the process industry‘s first truly digital load cell. After over five decades and five generations of innovation and development, Coperion K-Tron‘s Smart Force Transducer technology continues to set the standard for the industry. Advanced single-wire design, high resolution, internal force reduction, and 90% fewer parts combine to provide the highest possible levels of performance and reliability.
Experience has shown that the vibrating wire load cell is ideal for continuous weigh-feeding applications. It has proven to be flexible, reliable, accurate, linear, and cost effective. Measurement is truly continuous, and SFT resolution is over 1:8'000'000 in 20 ms. It is not a coincidence that all leading weigh-feeder manufacturers throughout the world today now employ some version of the vibrating wire load cell Coperion K-Tron pioneered in the mid 1970s.
Coperion K-Tron's SFT weighing technology is at the heart of our range of highly accurate gravimetric feeders.
