Vulcan Super-Beam™ Load Cells with EDOC

The highest-quality load cells for on-board scales, better protected than ever!

Vulcan Super-Beam™ load cells, developed and manufactured in-house by VPG, are long-proven for high reliability in a wide variety of on-board weighing systems used in multiple industries. In refuse vehicles, they are typically installed between the truck frames and truck-mounted bodies. In log trucks they are mounted beneath the log bolsters or under the fifth wheel plate and between the suspension and the trailer frame.

EDOC corrosion-proof coating

EDOC (Electrodeposited Organic Coating), developed by VPG, is applied as part of the Super-Beam load cell manufacturing process. It outstrips common coatings, such as zinc-nickel, and is more environmentally friendly than cad-chromate coating.
