Industriell Vägning

Company history in brief

History
Ake, Arne and Pehr, ~1953

S-E-G was founded in 1953 as a spin-off of wind tunnel testing at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Three engineers; Arne Soderholm, Pehr Engstrom and Ake Gustafsson, S-E-G, using strain gauge measurement in aircraft designs, where asked to use their knowledge to design equipment for industrial electronic weighing.

Directly from start we designed and manufactured all of our main products. These included load cells using the company's own strain gauges and electronic equipment for different kinds of scales. Mechanical accessories for application were also in the product line.

Many inventions in weighing has it's origin here, and we today have about 60 weighing related patents.


Significant Milestones:

  • 1953: Our first strain gauge load cell was manufactured.
  • 1955: We received the patent on the compression load cell.
  • 1957: The first electronic belt scale. A modular design that lasted until 1978.
  • 1961: S-E-G was incorporated. We started manufacturing our own electronics.
  • 1973: Microcomputer based digital scales.
  • 1977: Digital belt scales.
  • 1981: The patented modular Belt Scales was introduced.
  • 1992: The FK Weigh Feeder, using revolutionary new technology, was released.
  • 1994: OIML approved belt scale.
  • 1996: The Coriolis Mass Flow Meter is introduced.
  • 2008: MID approved belt scale.
