Universal Calibrating Machines versus Universal Testing Machines - These machines are different

May 16, 2016 12:00:00

Universal Calibrating Machine - a versatile compression and tension machine used for the calibration of load cells, force gauges, crane scales and other force measuring instruments for the purpose of calibrating or characterizing the devices for use as secondary standards, working standards, or to make field measurements.

Load Cell Measurement Error - If a load cell is to be used to make descending measurements, it must be calibrated with a descending range

Load Cell Transitioning from one mode to another. Does it make a difference?

May 02, 2016 12:00:00

This post will examine the effects of calibrating the load cell in compression by switching to tension and then back to compression, versus calibrating in tension first and then compression. We will determine if there is a statistical difference in output from transitioning back and forth between compression and tension on newer load cells.

Load Cell Measurement Error - What you need to know about having a load cell calibrated at a high and low range

April 01, 2016 12:00:00

Molecule Excitement Decline might explain why the use of a low range calibration on a reference standard can lead to additional error. This post will explain what molecule excitement decline is, and what should be done to minimize the error associated with using a load cell at a high and low range.

Torque Formulas and Conversions

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.
