Benchtop Calibrating Machine

The Morehouse Benchtop Calibrating Machine is a laboratory-grade force calibration system that can sit on any table or desk that can support 150 lbs (75 kgs). Quick-Change Tension adapters, quick-adjust calibration height, and quick setup will save you valuable time during setups. This system provides a fine control that enables the calibration of load cells, crane scales, dynamometers, hand-held force gauges, and other force equipment while controlling the force to as little as 0.05 lbf throughout the range.

The Morehouse Benchtop Calibrating Machine (PCM-10MD-1) was designed with field calibration requirements in mind. It provides all the force calibration tools needed in a benchtop package  that takes up less than 2' x 2' in tabletop space.

This calibrator gives you accurate and stable force measurements in a robust and low-maintenance design. It is equipped with several time-saving features that enable a quality force calibration where limited space is a concern and saving time is critical. With continuous support from Morehouse, you can expand the capabilities of this system to accommodate a wide range of force sensors such as shear web load cells, S-type load cells, crane scales, dynamometers, tension links, ring force gauges, button load cells, handheld force gauges, beam load cells, miniature load cells, etc.
