Application:

Vampire Bite Force


Description:

In an attempt to estimate the strength of a vampire’s bite, Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior called upon the assistance of a four-legged friend: an alligator. Utilizing FUTEK's LLB Miniature Load Button Load Cell, the esteemed group of experts for DW were able to confirm a bite force of nearly 1,800 lb.

Application:

Resistance Spot Welding


Description:

Resistance Spot Welding is a process in which pieces of metal are joined together by the heat created by the electrical resistance of the material combined with the forces applied by the electrode to hold the pieces together. The forces applied by the electrodes are very critical to the process, as the incorrect amount might cause cracks, holes, and failures in the welds. FUTEK’s LLB300 Miniature Load Button helps operators ensure that the welding machine is applying the correct amount of force.

Laparoscopic Tool Calibration


Description:

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and Single Port Access Surgery (SPAS) have dramatically reduced the risk and recovery time for patients for undergoing tumor extraction, heart valve and artery repair, and in-vitro fertilization. Whether performed with a robotic surgical system or with the trained hands of a surgeon, precision instrumentation is required to work with the delicate tissues of the patient while providing a precise, secure grip without exerting excess force. The forces applied with robotic instrumentation must be calibrated so that visual and haptic feedback mechanisms report the correct applied forces during surgery. Handheld instrumentation requires verification of the applied forces so the tactile sensations felt by the surgeon are predictable and consistent. Here we will demonstrate the verification and calibration of the jaws of a laparoscopic instrument.

Application:

Bag Sealer Validation


Description:

For sterilized and other sealed pouches and packaging, tears and partially broken seals are not always apparent. To mitigate seal failure and ensure seal integrity, verification of the heat sealing force is critical, as over/under applied sealing force can cause premature failure of the seal. This application utilizes a pair of LLB130 load buttons to monitor the force applied to pouch during the pouch sealing process.

Application:

Bottle Capping Torque Control


Description:

During cap application, ensuring consistent force and torque application is key to reducing product rejection rates. In systems that utilize child-proof caps, sanitized or sterilized packaging, verification of successful cap application is critical for seal validation and quality control. To accomplish this, a multi-axial sensor is used in the capping press to ensure precision, consistency, and seal integrity.
