Steering Wheel Ergonomics
Steering Wheel Ergonomic Tests Using the Grip™ System Challenge While it is often a key feature in the purchase decision of an automobile, driver comfort can be a difficult aspect to test and measure. Most vehicles today are manufactured with instrumented steering wheels that include several...
nip roller
Background Having proper nip roll alignment is crucially important for high-volume printing press machines. Five minutes of run time on misaligned rolls can result in thousands of dollars in damaged product. Depending on the size and location of the nip, taking nip measurements can be difficult...
robotic-assembly-app-image
Background Most electronic assembly processes are performed by high-precision robotic systems. These systems are tasked to properly move and insert delicate components onto a circuit board. As a result, the assembly robots must be checked frequently for changes in alignment that can occur with...
Cereal-Sealing-Bar
Background The food packaging industry must always maintain high standards for their packaging seals. These standards are to protect the consumer from tampering and/or receiving damaged product. Sealing bars are used to properly seal two parts of a package in a high temperature environment, and...
Contact-Lens-Machine-Alignment-Application
Background Ultrasonic welding machines are used to create uniform seals, which are vitally important for containing products like contact lenses. In the ultrasonic welding process, thermoplastics are bonded together through the use of heat and applied force. A damaged seal can result in leaky...
 Peristaltic Insulin Pump Test
Optimize Medical Device Functionality Challenge Manufacturers and researchers continuously strive to validate or improve efficiency and accuracy of medical devices and precision tools. Whether evaluating the effectiveness of a surgical apparatus or ensuring the fit of a health-monitoring device,...
Tire footprint pressure distribution output
Challenge: Tire manufacturers need to understand the changes of a tire under various loads and applications to improve handling and response. Additionally, knowing the void ratio of the tire is critical for understanding the water displacement potential of the design. Solution: The TireScan™...
automotive door pressure measurement
Automotive Door Pressure Wind, noise, and water leaks in a new vehicle can be a significant source of customer dissatisfaction, create a perception of poor quality, and cause warranty expenses. Proper adjustment of hinges and door latches while the car is in the factory and the doors are being...
coil spring pressure measurement
Evaluate Coil Spring Pressure Distribution Engineers can take many approaches to designing coil springs. Some designers will clip the end of the spring "square"; creating a small high-pressure point at the end of the spring that transfers load eccentrically. Other designers bend the last coil to be...
Crash test dummy impact measurement
High Speed Impact Testing Using Pressure Distribution The I-Scan™ force and pressure mapping system can be used in crash test dummy studies to capture the dynamic pressure and impact force that are exerted during an impact. I-Scan can identify the temporal, local, peak, and spatial pressures...
