Shimadzu introduced one-piece force cell technology for precision balances 1989. Today’s UniBloc is created by high-precision electric discharge wire processing applied to a block of aluminum alloy, and replaces the conventional electro-magnetic balance sensor assembly. UniBloc’s compact, uniform structure ensures stable temperature characteristics, excellent response time and stable corner-load performance. In addition, the UniBloc designs permits a consistency of production that assures reliability and a long operational life.
The updated UniBloc technology expands the UniBloc balance lineup, which now ranges from semi-micro with minimum display of 0.01 mg to precision platform balances up to 52 kg in capacity.
