Calling an instrument “In Tolerance” is about location, location, location. It’s also about the uncertainty of the measurement, but a bad location is going to raise the Probability of False Accept (PFA) significantly. The probability of false accept is the likelihood of a lab calling a measurement “In Tolerance” when it is not. This post deals with exposing some bad practices labs make by calling equipment good when it is not.

What if your only problem is that the load cell amplifier you are using, is hindering your total system performance? Morehouse Load Cell Amplifier for Controllers (LAC) Can Improve System Performance by a Factor of 10. This is an article demonstrating actual testing done using a LAC amplifier.
Metrological Traceability, Measurement Uncertainty, and Measurement Risk This blog discusses a clear metrological traceability chain, calculating measurement uncertainty correctly and evaluating measurement risk using the formulas.
With a weight of fewer than 36 lbs, the Morehouse Portable Calibrator allows on-site calibration of load cells, force gauges, hand held force gauge, button load cells, and other force measuring instrumentation.
What happens when torque is not applied properly. Do you even know if your wrenches are capable of applying the correct torque? This blog explains over and under torquing as well as something called back torquing. Back torquing is when you have no idea that a particular wrench is applying a torque in the opposite direction, resulting in inaccurate torque values being applied to the fastener.
Load Cell Creep is the change in load cell signal occurring with time while under load. This post discusses the three common load cell creep definitions with some humor. Morehouse sell good load cells that have very low creep.
The right requirements, equipment, and requirements are essential to lowering your measurement risk. This blog explains all three requirements in great detail.
