11 ranges, 20-120 g to 5-50 Kg

A precision movement with high over-load capacity provides highest accuracy and long lasting calibration


  • Large, linear scale for higher reading accuracy over the entire range.
  • Material thickness compensation on all high range models.
  • DXN's are individually calibrated for highest accuracy.
  • Choice of guide rollers for filament speeds up o 5000 m/min.
  • Rugged die-cast aluminum housing.
  • NIST-Traceable calibration optionally available.

Air Damping (A)
An adjustable, precision air dashpot provides steady tension readings for those applications where high tension fluctuations exist

Lever (L) A heavy-duty, lever-operated mechanism moves the outer rollers for easy acquisition of the running filament. Recommended for models of 10 K higher.

High Speed Rollers
(K) For speeds up to 3500 m/min (U) For speeds up to 5000 m/min.
