Morehouse load cell alignment plugs are used to help center the load
cell in calibrating machines. They are used in combination with the
other adapters below. More information on load cell adapters and the
mounting accessories can be found here

|Thread is past flush and into the cell. |
When using your alignment plugs that thread into the
bottom of your load cells, make sure they are threaded flush to the
the cell. Once they are flush, thread
the adapter an extra turn into the cell.
You want to make sure that none of the threads are exposed below the
base of the cell. If there is a
thread or more exposed, the load will be generated through the internal
of the cell and not it's base. This will result in an additional calibration error of about 0.012 %. It will often result in damage to the alignment plug.
|The alignment plug is not threaded past the base of the cell. |
Everything we do, we believe in changing how people think about force and torque calibration. Morehouse believes in thinking differently about force and torque calibration and equipment. We challenge the "just calibrate it" mentality by educating our customers on what matters, what causes significant errors, and focus on reducing them. Morehouse makes our products simple to use and user-friendly. And we happen to make great force equipment and provide unparalleled calibration services.
