Customer Need and challenge

ANDILOG collaborated with the packaging industry to provide a compression force measuring solution which is able to efficiently evaluate the load applied by a hydraulic press on a loaded wood palette. (Without mentioning the limited space to accommodate a measuring device to the existing manufacturing equipment). The goal was to audit the force input command of the press, detect improper set-point values and control the regulating process.

The achievement of this project led to a continuous improvement program of the packing process, as well as improved the service life of the hydraulic press.

ANDILOG Solution

In order to evaluate the applied force by the hydraulic press during its compression cycle, a compression button LLB4 load cell united with its digital reader CENTOR TOUCH STAR is mounted on a base plate.

The assembly required hardened washers and a made to measure base plate, which accommodates the LLB4 bottom tapped holes. This assembly allows to fully integrate measuring device to the packing process.

The CENTOR TOUCH STAR is displaying in real time the applied force, the curve of the force during the all manufacturing process and the peak force. And in order to monitor the regulating process, the force gauge can communicate through its integrated trigger input/outputs to the command.



The external LLB4 combined with the CENTOR TOUCH STAR allows to display simultaneously the peak force and the raw data; for an optimum control of the load applied by the hydraulic press.

ANDILOG Products

ANDILOG offers a large range of digital force gauge with external load cell – which reply to all applications where the space is limited, or with a high force range, or when the mounting conditions are specifics.

The LLB4 button load cell with threaded mounting holes fully replies to the requirements of this project, thanks to its large force range up to 5000N, its tapped holes and small size (i.e. outside diameter of 31.20mm). The CENTOR TOUCH STAR with external button load cell LLB4 has been offered for this application.

How it works

  • The wood palette is placed in the hydraulic press
  • The compression base plate which includes the LLB4 load cell is set on the top of the palette
  • The operator tares the CENTOR TOUCH STAR and launches the hydraulic press
  • The press is applying a compression force on the palette which is measured by the LLB4 load cell; and the CENTOR TOUCH STAR is displaying in real time the force as the load is applied.


Our key added value

Our added value has been underlined by our customer by our capacity to coordinate approaches and method effectively. We have been able to react and answer quickly to the needs of providing a full compatible and advanced device. The main advantages of our measuring solutions are:

  • Live graphing: force vs time
  • Automatic pre-defined calculation (peak force)
  • TTL input/output to communicate with the regulating commands
  • Large choice of external load cell to accommodate the application

ANDILOG's force gauges are specifically tailored towards quality assurance and research, for further information please contact ANDILOG’s Team.
