Spring testing with Futek LSB Series load cells

Spring testing systems are used in diverse applications including high volume production testing, quality control inspection, and design engineering.

The above conceptual diagram shows an automated spring testing system where an S Beam load cell (LSB Series) has been fixed onto a spring test column to measure the spring force in relation to its position.

How it works:

Using an LSB Series load cell paired with instrumentation (USB Solutions) during R&D, the automated spring testing system can be configured to either compress or extend the spring under test. Futek’s LSB Series load cell is fixed onto the spring test column to measure spring compressive or tensile force when the spring is compressed or elongated. These force measures are streamed to a computer for analysis utilising Futek’s USB Solutions. The information can then be used to determine or verify the stiffness of the spring based on Hooke’s Law.

The automated spring testing system features LSB Series S Beam tension and compression load cell; a high resolution USB output module; and SENSIT test and measurement software.
