Quick Change Tension Members And Adapters

Improve your measurement process, save space, and reduce the long-term cost of purchasing many adapters for each instrument you need to calibrate with Quick Change Tension Members and Adapters. These adapters help eliminate errors from eccentric forces or side loads by complying with the Annex in the ISO 376 standard.

Morehouse Quick Change Adapters simplify the tension calibrations and improve alignment, reducing measurement errors. These adapters work well in universal calibrating, deadweight, and universal testing machines to save time and rework by making connections more effortless and more efficient. These adapters can be manufactured to work in almost any force or Universal Tensile Machine.

The threaded adapter kits used with these adapters can be used to standardize both compression and tension calibration.

Reducing changeover time allows for a more efficient calibration process that improves cycle time and does not sacrifice quality. Shorter cycle time allows for improvements in on-time delivery, lowered cost of excess inventory, and increase in machine capacity levels.

Quick Change Tension Members and Adapters help with the following:

  • Reduce tension changeover time
  • Improve alignment by using a spherical radius contact as defined by ISO 376
  • Improve alignment and repeatability
  • Reduce overall calibration cycle time
  • Simplify setups by using one tension member with several adapters
  • Standardize production flow
  • Fit for use with additional Clevis assemblies to calibrate crane scales
  • Rust resistance helps keep things clean
  • Can be used with Morehouse load cells to calibrate Universal Tensile Machines to the ASTM E4 and ISO 7500 standards.
  • Available for capacities up to 500kN or 112,000 lbf (large capacities can be built to order)

Quick Change Adapters are available in various capacities and sizes. Common size kits are 12K, 30K, 60K, and 120K. We can make tension member assemblies and clevises for capacities up to 1,000,000 lbf (4.4 MN).

Morehouse Quick Change Tension Members and Adapters are guaranteed to improve your measurement process and bottom line.
