Load Cell Transitioning from one mode to another. Does it make a difference?

Load Cell Transitioning from one mode to another. Does it make a difference? This post will examine the effects of Load Cell Transitioning by 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 […]

Force Applications for Mass Reference Standards

Force Applications for Mass Reference Standards Our good friend, Mark Ruefenacht of Heusser Neweigh, and a Mass Metrology Instructor at NIST, pointed out that most mass calibration laboratories will issue certificates of calibration only listing conventional mass (unless True Mass is requested). Force Applications for Mass may create some confusion for those trying to convert […]

Load Cell Measurement Error - What you need to know about having a load cell calibrated with 2 ranges

What you need to know about having a load cell calibrated with 2 ranges Load cell calibrated with 2 ranges has a common error that can be referred to as Molecule Excitement Decline  might explain why the use of a low range calibration on a reference standard can lead to additional errors.  This post will […]

Good Force Measurement Practice - Load Cell with a Flat Base

Good Force Measurement Practice - Load Cell with a Flat Base A Load Cell with a Flat Base A Load Cell with a Flat Base can be crucial to obtaining great calibration results with load cells. The error is associated with installing a nonflat base on a multi-column cell.   Below is the actual test […]

Torque Explained Formulas and Conversions

Torque Explained Torque Explained - In the simplest sense Torque = Force * Length Torque is derived and traceable to SI units of length,  mass,  and time. The meter is the length of the path traveled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299 792 458 of a second. The kilogram is the unit […]

ASTM E74 Calibration Procedure Simplified

ASTM E74 Calibration Procedure Simplified Steps recommended performing calibration in accordance with ASTM E74 Stabilization Allow UUT to come to room temperature Warm-up Instrumentation Preparation Select 10-11 Test points IF UUT IS TO BE USED IN BOTH INCREASING AND DECREASING FORCES,  THE DEVICE MUSE BE CALIBRATED IN BOTH MODES.  THE SELECTION OF FORCE POINTS SHOULD […]

Keep your force measurement system in control with Statistical Process Controls (SPC) and 5 in 1 solution

Keep your force measurement system in control with Statistical Process Controls (SPC) and 5 in 1 solution In previous posts, we have been focusing on measurement errors.  Good measurement practices such as keeping your force measurement system in control are equally important.  We often forget about those practices we put in place to make sure our […]

#1 Top Tip to Avoid Load Cell Cable Length Errors

#1 Top Tip on How to Avoid Load Cell Cable Length Errors The majority of force or torque systems we calibrate each year consist of load or torque cells, an indicator or readout, load cell cables, adapters, and some sort of shipping or carrying case. Around 90 % of these systems come in with an […]
