Load Cells and Torque Wrenches What to Know

Load and torque measurement products

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…)

Civil engineering companies in usa

Civil engineering is the art of customizing the world around us to better suit our needs. It can be as elaborate as building a new dam to accommodate thousands of tons of water or as simple as filling up a pothole in the middle of the road. Achieving this requires a combination of photography, ongoing analysis and hard labor. Ideas large and small are brought to fruition every single day to keep up with growing demand and the biggest civil engineering companies in the world only continue to have their work cut out for them. What can civil engineering structural design do to make our world safer?

Let’s take a look.

Just like our imagination knows no bounds, civil engineering is about as vast and complex as the societies it upholds. It applies to keeping roads safe and e (more…)

Find Out More About PCB Design and Layout Services

Prototype circuit board

Printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies have been integrated into quite a few electronic devices over the decades. Most of the traffic lights in North America, for example, have PCB assemblies. As a recent article in Sciencing magazine reports, household electronic appliances and other devices, such as computers, televisions, and cell phones all have some type of PCB. Furthermore, a computer’s “motherboard” is integral to this device’s operation. Other circuit boards enable memory, power, and other vital operational aspects.

Surface Mount Technology

With surface mount technology (SMT), the components are placed on a PCBs’ surface. These are 1/10 or less the size of a through-hole circuit. In addition to SMT, there are other types of circuit assemblies. These are Integrated circu (more…)
