Wire Tension Measurement - See how it works
For assurance purposes, the textile industry, cable manufacturers, wire fabrication houses, and fiber testing labs all heavily rely on load cells to monitor the force on the fibers/wires. FUTEK's LSB200 is an ideal solution since it has a mechanical overload protection and offers both compression and tension measurements, in addition to its compact frame.

In the above illustration, test engineers employ the use of FUTEK's Miniature S-Beam Jr. Load Cell (LSB200) to perform a wire fiber tension application ensuring that their product meets their specified quality standards. As the fiber/wire winds through the load cell pulley accessory, the LSB200 feeds back the amount of tension on the fiber/wire to the controller/instrumentation. Tracking these forces allows operators test the life expectancy of the product (quality), reduce scrap (profitability), and ensures a desired level of quality.
