Anyone making force measurements should attend this webinar if they are not familiar with all of the sources of measurement error in relation to adapters. For example, using a top block for compression loading can produce up to a 0.5 % error if the end user is using something with a different hardness and/or flatness. Using the wrong pin size on a tension link can cause a 2 % error on a device with an accuracy of 0.1 % of full scale. We will discuss these and other errors associated with the use of the wrong adapters.

**Attending this webinar is FREE, but registration is required.**

With the Morehouse Benchtop Calibrating Machine, you can benefit from a laboratory-grade force calibration system that can sit on any table or desk that can support 150 lbs (75 kgs). Quick-Change Tension adapters, quick-adjust calibration height, and quick setup will save your valuable time when making set-ups. This system provides a fine control that enables calibrating load cells, crane scales, dynamometers, hand-held force gauges, and other force equipment while controlling the force to as little as 0.05 lbf throughout the range. 

Morehouse Benchtop Calibrating Machine features:

  • Available capacities: 10,000 lbf & 50 kN
  • Tension and compression calibrations in one setup
  • Fine adjustment of the calibration load
  • Under 150 lbs in total weight
  • Takes up less than a 2' x 2' area on a table or workbench
  • Capable of generating forces from 40 to 10,000 lbf
  • Adjustable leveling feet 
  • Quick reference standard change capabilities
  • Capable of controlling force application as low as 0.05 lbf based on the resolution of the reference standard used
  • Capable of calibrating handheld force gauges using Morehouse Handheld Force Gauge Adapters
  • Built-in Quick-Change Tension Member to automatic force line alignment 
  • Enlarged calibration space to accommodate large size instruments such as crane scales 
  •  Variety of adapters and clevises available to calibrate numerous force instruments on the market
  • Quick calibration height adjustment
  • Low-maintenance, manual operation system
  • Eliminates safety concerns from carrying and stacking large amounts of weights for calibration

Morehouse Benchtop Calibrating Machine can be used to calibrate the following force-proving instruments: Washer Load Cell, Crane Scales, Dynamometers, Tension Links, Universal Load Cell, Low Capacity Load Cell, Miniature Load Cells, Button Load Cell, S-Beam Load Cell, General Purpose Load Cell, Load Cell, Force Transducer, Digital Force Gauges, Hand-Held Force Gauges, Force Gages, and more.
