Force calibration

In the force calibration laboratory based on the scope of certification and national and international standards of tensile calibration and compression dynamometer calibration, load cell calibration, material testing machine calibration and speed and displacement measuring device and extensometer calibration inside the company and at the customer site Experienced and trained experts are calibrated.

Most of the time it is necessary to measure the forces acting on an object in industrial centers and workshops. For example, to control the stability of a bridge that thousands of cars pass through every day, we must calculate the number of forces that are applied to it. To measure the forces acting on an object, converters called dynamometers are used. By measuring the amount of strain based on the change in rod length and according to the coefficient of elasticity, the force applied to the body can be calculated.

To measure the amount of strain generated in the body, a strain gauge is used, which is one of the resistance sensors. Strain gauges are used to measure force, pressure, torque and weight. Resistance strain gauges are thin layers of resistance wires that are mounted on the components of a machine or structure with special adhesives. Due to the force applied to the strain gauge, the length of the resistance wires increases (due to tension) or decreases (due to compression). The thickness of the wires changes due to pressure or tension. In strain gauges, there is a linear relationship between the applied force and the resistance change.

Today’s dynamometers usually include 4 strain gauges that are placed in a full bridge circuit that includes the following types of load cells:

The appearance of this load cell is similar to S. The mechanism of action of this load cell is also based on length changes. One side of the load cell is connected to a fixed point from the top and force is applied to it from the bottom. This type of load cell is often used in suspension weighing systems. They are one of the most widely used load cells and are used in systems that are both tensile and compressive in nature.
