    5 Reasons This May Be the Best Load Cell for Plate Bearing Tests

    Micro Geotechnical, an in-situ testing company, needed to accurately monitor the bearing capacity of the ground under a given load, to determine the safe bearing capacity of the soil.

    The measuring instruments would need to be accurate and precise, with the ability to withstand the harsh outdoor environments of their in-situ plate bearing tests.

    So, we offered them Applied Measurements button load cell CBES and our handheld indicator and here’s why…

    Universal Fabric Tension Tester for All Fabrics and Styles

    The Challenge – Accurately Measure Fabric Tension on Any Style of Furniture.
    Fabric strength testing guarantees the fabric being used on furniture meets the high quality needed for durability, comfort and support.

    Choosing the wrong type of fabric can lead to fabric tearing, loss of customer satisfaction and a decrease in sales and profit.

    Find out how our miniature s-beam load cell, intuitive4-L digital indicator and industrial LVDT displacement sensors were used to determine fabric strength.

    Read the real life case study of power take-off torque monitoring on the Wave Energy Converter The SeaPower Platform. See how our complete torque measuring system enabled engineers to accurately monitor the torque applied by the Wave Energy Converter as it responded to waves in the test tank with accurate, fast and reliable results.


    S-Beam Load Cells Promise Accurate Pigment Dispensing

    We chose Applied Measurements’ DBBSM s-beam load cells as the pigment is £1000 per tonne so has to be extremely accurate” says Paul Akers, Works Manager at PD Edenhall Ltd. One of the largest independent concrete facing brick manufacturer in the UK, needed a way to accurately monitor the amount of pigment being dispensed into the weigh hopper throughout the manufacture of concrete facing bricks.  The pigment amount needs to be precise as inaccurate amounts of pigment can lead to incorrect colour blends leading to a loss in sales and profit. Read how our accurate DBBSM s-beam load cells and intuitive4-L digital indicators were used in this construction industry application.
