Legal dispute over load cell patent finally reaches conclusion

The long-term legal dispute regarding a patent infringement by Zemic Europe has finally been decided in favor of Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik (HBM). Zemic had copied characteristics of a load cell configuration with a special rotation stop for pendulum load cells and sold their own load cell configurations using these characteristics. They are however protected by a patent issued to HBM.

Zemic has undertaken to refrain from manufacturing, using or marketing the relevant load cell configuration in Germany, France, Italy or the Netherlands on pain of a contractual penalty in the event of infringement.
