The technology is an interposed active structure, consisting of one or more articulated members, placed between the load receptor and a load cell. Feeder and weigh hopper “dead load” are mass-counterbalanced so that only material weight is measured. Configurations consist of: various constant sensitivity platforms (flexure and cable scales), graded sensitivity weighbridges (conveyor belt scales) and lateral torque transmitting devices (model "D").
