  • Weigh Scale Applications for the MCP3551
    AN1030 Weigh Scale Applications for the MCP3551 This application note will focus specifically on load Author: Jerry Horn, Gordon Gleason cells, a type of strain gauge that is typically used for Lynium, L.L.C. measuring weight. Even more specifically, the focus will be on fully active, temperature
  • Mini fuel cells slated to power cell phones
    , the research team is working with the University of Naples to develop membranes that are more permeable and cheaper than membrane materials currently available. Prototypes of fuel cells will find their way into notebook computers before the end of next year, according to Direct-methanol fuel cells weigh about
  • Dual Monorail Helps Paper Company Work Outside the Box
    Green Bay Packaging is a pulp and paper manufacturer using 100% recycled materials to produce a wide variety paperboard packaging. Large bulk rolls are slit and sized based on customer demand, and moved to a work cell in stacks where they are loaded onto skids for final shipping. Occasionally
  • Medical Device Link .
    Using Load Cell Technology in Medical Weighing Applications Flexibility of strain gauge technology is key for accurate weight measurements. Accurate medical scales are important diagnostic tools in many patient-care situations. Many applications require constant monitoring of patient weights
  • Medical Device Link .
    Spotlight on Pumps and Valves Pneumatically operated Teflon diaphragm valves have 0.25- to 2-in. spigot connections for high-purity applications. The BSD-series units have no metals or elastomers in contact with process liquid, and weigh as little as 5 oz. The valves permit up to 100-psi inlet
  • Introduction to Load Cells
    which converts force into a measurable electrical output. Although there are many varieties of load cells, strain gage based load cells are the most commonly used type. Before strain gage-based load cells became the method of choice for industrial weighing applications, mechanical lever scales were
  • Welding with light
    inlets, and fluid reservoirs. Other potential applications include taillights, fuel line components, cell phone housings, and medical devices. The new Laser IRAM (Infrared Assembly Method) system from Branson Ultrasonics Corp., Danbury, Conn., illuminates the entire welding surface simultaneously
  • Coloring outside the lines
    from cell phones to automobiles, color may be the deciding factor between a new product's success or failure. Color once consisted of simply slapping a thin coat of paint on a product's surface. But thanks to the widespread adoption of engineered thermoplastics, color is now integral to design
