Good Force Measurement Practice - Load Cell with a Flat Base
A Load Cell with a Flat Base
|the figure above shows five times the measurement error with a nonflat base|
A Load Cell with a Flat Base Conclusion: A nonflat base produced a larger variation in output when the load cell was rotated; this error was five times that of a ground base. If you are using a load cell with a non-ground base, or if you are using compression pads that are supposed to be flat, you should verify flatness before use. Top compression pads and load cell bases can usually be machined, stoned, or ground flat. A flat base or ground compression pad will produce better measurement results.
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, and 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.
