Tips to select load cell

Hello everyone I'm currently doing a project on finding the weight of crates that are placed on a conveyor belt. I'm thinking of using load cells to find out the weight of the crates. The weight of the crates would be around 50 - 60kgs. For the prototype phase it is sufficient for me if the crates are manually placed on the platform and NOT on the conveyor.

I'm stumped on how to choose a load cell and how to setup the platform. Please give your suggestions everyone. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm a newbie to all of this so any kind of things so any kind of help would be appreciated.
