A company wants to measure the contact pressure of their pneumatic actuator seals and its counterpart. Pneumatic actuators are essential in robotics and factory automation, especially when it is used in the applications such as motor controls. They want to ensure the pneumatic actuator’s lip seal holds under different pressure loads.
Interface suggests conducting a fatigue test using their 1200 Standard Precision LowProfile™ Load Cell. The 1200 is installed externally of the pneumatic actuator where different pressure loads are measured. The test is conducted until their pneumatic actuator is dismantled. Precise force results are captured using the 9840 Calibration Grade Multi-Channel Load Cell Indicator.
Interface’s 1200 Standard Precision LowProfile™ Load Cell successfully measured the amount of force it took for the pneumatic actuator’s seal to hold under different pressure loads.
