Test machines, calibration of compression test machines, load measurement for process control, restricted height applications, measuring the load applied in presses.
The standard design incorporates a pancake style compression load cell which can be adapted for measuring structures using a suitable mounting plate. A platen using spherical seating to ensure accurate measurement of miss-aligned loads in compression.
These load cells can be supplied with a Macklow-Smith works calibration certificate traceable to national standards or a UKAS calibration certificate. They can also be supplied tested and ready for calibration by the customers preferred test laboratory.
