Load Cell - Automotive Seat Testing

Application Summary

In the automotive industry, robots are used to cycle test seats for wear and durability. Automakers research how people of all shapes and sizes affect the upholstery, seat cushions and seat structures over the life of the vehicle. FUTEK’s LCF456 Fatigue Rated Pancake Load Cell is integrated into the custom testing robot to quantify data of the compression force placed onto a seat.

Products in Use

Fatigue Rated Pancake Load Cell (LCF456) paired with Instrumentation (USB Solutions).

Automotive Seat Testing
How it Works
  1. Car seats undergo robotic test that repetitively reproduce human movements and loads onto the seat under test.

  2. FUTEK’s Fatigue Rated Pancake Load Cell LCF456 is fixed to the distal point of the robots arm to quantify the force that is applied in the process with high accuracy and repeatability.

  3. The load measurements produced help engineers determine the quality of an automotive seat.

  4. These force measures can be streamed to a computer for analysis utilizing FUTEK’s USB Solutions.
