Many engineering businesses and departments rely on equipment for accurate measurements when building, constructing, or designing a product. These can include different measurement tools, such as the load cell or even specific tools to analyze the necessary rotation and tourque. Here is a quick look at these devices and how they can affect the effectiveness of an engineering team.
The load cell is a transducer that transmits an electrical signal proportional to the force being measured. There are five types of load cells depending on the primary and secondary element that is used to sense the force: strain gauge type load cells, hydraulic load cells, diaphragm load cells, spool type load cells, and ring type load cells.
Most load cells today use strain gauge technology, wh (more…)
