Error associated with installing a non flat base on a multi-column cell. Below is actual test result we observed on a Revere multi-column cell.
Torque, also called moment or moment of force is the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis, fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist.
A good stable Morehouse force measurement system can be used to do the following: (1) Force Verification, (2) SPC – Statistical Process Control, (3) ILC – Intra-Laboratory Checks, (4) Proficiency Testing, and (5) A Test Standard to do repeatability and reproducibility tests used to calculate Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC).
The majority of force or torque systems we calibrate each year consist of load or torque cells, an indicator or readout, cables, adapters and some sort of shipping or carrying case.
The purpose of this blog is to discuss the common types of load cells used in general force measurements. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type of cell.
Morehouse has developed a new excel workbook to help those trying to figure out measurement uncertainty and how to calculate their Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC). Updated 8/20/2016!
