Simionato placed high demands on the load cell's properties: “The PW22 load cell has been designed by Simionato and HBM specifically for RCW Simweight multi-head weighers. It meets all the precision, speed and thermal stability requirements of the OIML R60 international recommendation for load cells”, explains Francesco Renzulli, responsible for the Metrology Sector.
However, the load cell not only had to fulfill Simionato's requirements. OIML criteria had to be met as well. The OIML recommendation indicates the specifications a load cell must meet to be considered conforming to static and automatic weighing system requirements. The PW22 load cell has been certified by one of the most recognized accredited laboratories in Europe with a reputation for being also one of the most severe in terms of regulatory compliance.
