Load Cell - Material Force Testing

Application Summary

Utilizing a robust, high capacity pancake load cell (LCF Series), industrial operators can measure the force applied to test materials via a hydraulic press (material force testing).

Products in Use

A Pancake Load Cell (LCF Series) paired with Instrumentation (IAA Series, IPM650, IHH500, USB Solutions).

material force testing
How it Works
  1. Operators have installed a high capacity pancake load cell (LCF Series) into this hydraulic press material test stand.

  2. Intended for tension-based measurements, the load cell will monitor the force applied to the test specimen - in this case a concrete pillar.

  3. As the hydraulic press bears down on the concrete pillar, the LCF Load Cell's measure will be streamed to one of three instruments or amplified to a PLC via FUTEK's IAA Strain Gauge Analog Amplifier.

  4. The LCF Series Load Cell's data can streamed to either of FUTEK's digital displays: the IHH500 Intelligent Digital Hand Held Display or the IPM650 panel mount display, or it can be streamed directly to the operator's PC via FUTEK's USB Solutions.

  5. Any of these instruments can be paired with FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software, which can perform data logging, live graphing, and monitoring up to 16 channels.
