What does a Six Axis Load Cell do?

Having the right tools for a job is essential for being able to get the desired results from a test. A single point load cell is used to measure forces in a single direction. For more complex force measurements, a multi-axis Read More …

Finding Coefficient of Friction Using Three Directional Load Cells

Now more than ever, safety is one of the most important aspects of vehicle manufacturing. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) continue to improve, making vehicles safer every year. Sensors and systems for braking, traction control, and handling help drivers maintain Read More …

Using Load Cells for Engine Mount Measurements

Today’s modern engine compartments are optimized to consume nearly every cubic inch of space under the hood.  This limited space makes it difficult to add instrumentation that measure engine and transmission mount forces, without compromising the engine position.  Michigan Scientific Read More …

How are 3D load cells used on vehicles?

Load cells are transducers that convert an applied force into measured electrical signal. They are also used to track the changes in this force over time. Some applications require two, or more, 3D load cells to be used at a time, Read More …
