Application:

Prone Stereotactic Breast Biopsy


Description:

Biopsies for the removal and study of suspect tissue require the simultaneous use and monitoring of real-time ultrasound, x-ray, CT, or MRI imaging while inserting and controlling the biopsy needle. Simplification and automating the biopsy process has the ability the reduce operator error and improve patient care, especially during the emotionally difficult time of cancer screening. To automate the biopsy process, a sub-miniature load cell is placed in-line with the biopsy syringe and control arm to monitor insertion forces.

Application:

Suspension System Performance Validation


Description:

In a high performance vehicle, the suspension system does more than hold the car up, it adapts to aerodynamic forces on the vehicle, varying road conditions, and driver inputs. In addition, complex multipoint suspension systems in use in NASCAR® and Formula 1® require the use of modeling and simulation to ensure compliance under load. Significant modeling and analysis is undertaken to account for these variables. However, the final step to maximize performance is live testing to validate the simulation model. To accomplish this, load cells are placed in line with each suspension arm, providing detailed information of the load running through each arm, accurate steering load measurements, and indirect front tire grip enabling adjustments of the suspension system to optimize performance and handling.

Application:

Precision Wire Tensioner


Description:

Whether you are feeding a wire EDM machine, a wire stripper, or winding electric motor coils, precision wire tension is key in meeting today’s high-performance standards. The key to precision wire tension control requires live monitoring of the wire tension. By utilizing a load cell in-line with the wire tensioner, a versatile wire tensioning system can be developed that can adapt to changing wire quality and conditions. This adaptive system can maintain high coil winding quality and repeatability while maximizing process efficiency by preventing wire breakage.

Application:

Prosthetic Foot Emulator


Description:

For individuals who have lost part or all of a limb, rehabilitation is always a difficult process. For those who have undergone trans-tibial amputation, their prosthesis needs to replace the function of the biological limb below the knee. FUTEK worked with Humotech in selecting a sensor for a robotic prosthetic foot that can mimic different devices to help find the one that optimizes an individual’s gait. By mounting our LCM200 Miniature Threaded In-Line Load Cell in-line with a servo-driven cable system, Humotech was able to create a closed-loop system that enables patient's to test-drive products for a better fit and speedier rehabilitation.
