Application:

Exoskeleton for Paraplegics


Description:

Spinal cord injuries (SCI) often leave the patient with little to no ability to ever walk again. The Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) aimed to help solve that with a powered bionic exoskeleton at the 2016 Cybathlon in Zurich, Switzerland. Their ingenious exoskeleton suit, named Mina v2, utilizes power actuators that strap to an individual’s legs, moving their hip, knee, and ankle joints, allowing an individual to walk unassisted.

Application:

Ultrasonic Welding Clamp Force


Description:

Ultrasonic Welding welds together two pieces of material (ex: plastic) using high frequency vibrations. This results in a clean welding process, producing uniform, fluid tight welds. The clean welding process makes it ideal for medical equipment, toys, semiconductors, and consumer electronics. One of the keys to a clean weld is the proper application of clamping force. Too little force results in an incomplete weld, too much force results in deformed parts. Incorporating a load cell inline with the welding stack enables the ultrasonic welder to provide the correct amount of contact force to every part.

Application:

Die-Attach Force Measurement


Description:

Fragile semiconductor chips require delicate handling prior to packaging. During Through-Silicon Via (TSV), eutectic, epoxy, or solder based die attach processes, consistent force must be applied to the chip. Incorrect force application causes broken chips and incomplete bonds. Load cells incorporated into the die attach tooling enable closed loop control during this delicate process.

Application:

UAV Launcher Force


Description:

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) come with a variety of launching capablities, such as hand launching, vertical takeoff, or runway takeoff. With the rise of ever more capable and powerful UAVs, some vehicles require launchers are needed to propel them into the air. These launchers need to apply a minimum amount of force to safely launch the aircraft into the air. To accomplish this, an LCB400 Rod End Load Cell is mated to the launching mechanism to measure the force applied to the UAV.

Application:

Robotic Spot Welding Force


Description:

Robotic spot welders can vastly speed up the manufacturing process by automating welding of complex or hard to access assemblies. The robot must apply the same force to clamp the parts being welded to make a strong, complete weld. To ensure this, an LCB400 Rod End Load Cell is used in line with the tong's actuator to measure clamping force during welding.

Shark Bite Force Measurement


Description:

Measuring the bite force of a shark was no easy task. But the engineers at Peacock Productions designed a test platform to accomplish this for Shark Week 2017. Their setup mounted several LTH500 donut load cells into a mold that simulated a shark's prey. When the shark bit down upon the mold, our sensors captured the force applied.

Application:

Rocket Engine Thrust Stand


Description:

Characterization of solid, liquid, and hybrid rocket engines is often performed with computer modeling and ground testing. For experimental fuels, aerospike and other experimental altitude compensating nozzles, ground testing is necessary to characterize their thrust curves and Isp in static testing conditions. To accomplish this an LCF series load cell is mated between the rocket engine and the thrust stand. In addition to thrust, by incorporating four, 3-axis load cells in the test stand base supports, engine mass flow can be directly measured and under certain circumstances vectored exhaust thrust can also be measured.
