Wind Tunnel Application Note (Aerospace Industry)

A major aerospace company was developing a new airplane and needed to test their Scaled Model for aerodynamics in a wind tunnel, by measuring loads created by lift and drag. A Model 6A154 6-Axis Load Cell was mounted in the floor of the wind tunnel, and connected to the model by a "stalk". A Model BSC8D was connected to the sensor to collect data.

Ball & Socket Application Note (Medical Devices Industry)

A medical device manufacturer was developing a new design for an artificial hip joint, and needed to validate load consistency, and the durability of their design. A Model 6A40B 6-Axis Load Cell was mounted to the manufacturer's test machine, where loads were applied to simulate actual use. A Model BSC8 was connected to the sensor to collect data.

Cutting Force Application Note (Manufacturing Industry)

A tool manufacturer wanted to monitor the forces on a cutting tool as it cut material, in an effort to understand the wear characteristics under different conditions. A Model 6A68 6-Axis Load Cell was mounted between the cutting tool and the fixture, and connected to the Model BSC8D to collect the needed data.
