This post will examine the effects of calibrating the load cell in compression by switching to tension and then back to compression, versus calibrating in tension first and then compression. We will determine if there is a statistical difference in output from transitioning back and forth between compression and tension on newer load cells.
Molecule Excitement Decline might explain why the use of a low range calibration on a reference standard can lead to additional error. This post will explain what molecule excitement decline is, and what should be done to minimize the error associated with using a load cell at a high and low range.
Error associated with installing a non flat base on a multi-column cell. Below is actual test result we observed on a Revere multi-column cell.
Torque, also called moment or moment of force is the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis, fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist.
A good stable Morehouse force measurement system can be used to do the following: (1) Force Verification, (2) SPC – Statistical Process Control, (3) ILC – Intra-Laboratory Checks, (4) Proficiency Testing, and (5) A Test Standard to do repeatability and reproducibility tests used to calculate Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC).
The majority of force or torque systems we calibrate each year consist of load or torque cells, an indicator or readout, cables, adapters and some sort of shipping or carrying case.
