Load Cell Creep

The band Radiohead has a song called "creep", it’s a good song.  Really good, it’s true.  This blog post relates nothing to that song.  In our world of load cells, there are three definitions relating to creep.  We typically discuss two of them in our force workshops; hence you will see two of our workshop slides and the third definition below.

Load Cell Creep Return  – The difference between load cell signal immediately after removal of a load which has been applied for a specific time interval, environmental conditions and other variables remaining constant during the loaded interval, and the load cell signal before application of load.  Load Cell Creep Return is commonly expressed in units of % of applied load over a specified time interval.  It is common for characterization to be measured with a constant load at or near capacity.

Ultra Precision Load Cell

We sell load cells. Not just any load cells, really good ones.  The not really creepy kind.

These load cells often have low creep and lower limits well below our advertised specifications. They repeat when re-positioned in equipment. They have connector protectors to keep them from breaking. They are highly accurate and outperform almost all other load cells. People using our load cells, know the difference. Please contact us at sales@mhforce.com for more information.

Everything we do, we believe in changing how people think about force and torque calibration.  Morehouse believes in thinking differently about force and torque calibration and equipment.  We challenge the "just calibrate it" mentality by educating our customers on what matters, what causes significant errors, and focus on reducing them.  Morehouse makes our products simple to use and user-friendly.  And we happen to make great force equipment and provide unparalleled calibration services.
