|Instru-Met repairs Instron load cells and offers a complimentary no charge evaluation to assess any damages it may have incurred. In most cases Instru-Met can repair/replace your Instron load cell and get it back to you within 48 hours. Most load cells show signs of damage when they sustain forces of 150% over their full scale capacity. Instru-Met can rebuild your load cell with the same full scale capacity or higher. As an option, upon request, Instru-Met can install overload protection providing you overload protection up to 500% full scale capacity of the load cell. For example, a 100 lb load cell could be accidentally overloaded to 500 lbs and still function properly if the load cell in question had the Instru-Met overload protection installed.|
