We have spent years perfecting our unique, patented transducer calibration machine, the TCAT. A calibration compares the electrical output of a transducer to the applied loads.  The TCAT can calibrate all MSC multi-axis load cells, Wheel Force Transducers, and Wheel Torque Transducers. The TCAT applies loads with linear actuators and measures the load through the transducer via reaction links. It applies three forces and three moments and calibrates through each transducer’s unique electronics package. In addition to the TCAT, MSC has a large calibration that uses hydraulic arms to apply forces and moments; up to 100,000 lbs.

The Michigan Scientific transducer calibration process complies with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements and all reference measurement equipment is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Michigan Scientific Mass, Force, and Weighing Devices and Mechanical Calibration is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard. The design, manufacturing, and calibration process of the Michigan Scientific Corporation Wheel Force Transducer, Wheel Torque Transducer, and Load Cells is certified to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. It is recommended that customers send in their transducers after one year of use, and then every two years after that. This is an easy way to ensure that the transducer is functioning properly and has not incurred any damage during use.

With the development of the patented transducer calibration machine, calibration time has significantly decreased, allowing for a faster turnaround and return to customer. There are multiple locations throughout the globe to get a Michigan Scientific transducer calibrated. The calibration process is now also automated, which allows our highly skilled technicians  to focus on transducer design and manufacturing improvements.
