FUTEK is always looking for ways to better educate our audience and what better way than through application visuals. Visuals and diagrams play a crucial part in understanding how applications work. The FUTEK website features an Applications section with applications from different industries across the board. We would like to reach out to our customers in the field and find out how engineers are using Torque Sensors. Here at FUTEK we like to be hands on and find pleasure in learning about new ideas. Our Application Contest, which is going on for one more week, invites not only load cell but torque sensor submissions as well. So if you have an application measuring torque, we’d love to hear from you! Take a look at our top Torque Sensor Applications which we’ve highlighted in this month’s newsletter.
Rotating Torque Monitoring System
Rotating Torque Monitoring SystemInline Rotary Torque Sensors / Transducers are normally used in line with rotating shafts or nut runners for feed back control. For optimum performance, it is recommended to utilize coupling in order to minimize extraneous load & moments due to misalignment. When selecting the torque sensor, make sure to specify required RPM for proper ...

StampingDifferent types of sensors / transducers can be used simultaneously in order to improve quality during manufacturing or production processes. Below, a torque sensor attached to a motor at the top of a stamping operation monitors the amount of torque being exerted in order to stamp the cap on top of the bottle. The load cell ...

Assembly Line / Automation
Assembly Line / AutomationSensors / transducers are essential in many automated assembly, packaging and labeling processes. Below, a reaction torque sensor is setup with a servo motor in an automated conveyor belt assembly line to control the tension in the winding tape while providing feedback regarding alignment, out of roll signal and other ...

Reaction Torque Sensor
Reaction Torque SensorReaction Torque Sensors can be used in the measurement of Clutch/Motor rotary forces. In this application a Reaction Torque Sensor is bolted to the motor and to a fixed plate which then connects to a Clutch or Break. The rotating shaft goes through the Reaction Torque Sensor (but does not contact sensor) where it connects to the motor ...

There’s no time to lose! We’re halfway through the countdown of our Application contest, but you still have time to send us your application details! We’ve already received a number of great applications, but we’d still like to hear from you so send us your Load Cell and Torque Sensor application details! The FUTEK Team consists of a group of extreme innovators. These creative individuals working in each department at FUTEK only grow and feed off new knowledge and ideas. We feel this type of knowledge is also highly beneficial to our audience. For this reason FUTEK has created a website built around sensor and product knowledge to better inform and educate those visiting our website. In efforts to only grow and expand we’d like to hear from you. Let FUTEK know how you use sensors and load cells or what ideas you have where a force sensor is needed. By doing so you may just take home a free mini laptop! What’s better than that?
