Chain Testing

Last week on the Richard Hammond television programme on BBC2 they showed the engineering problem that had to be overcome on the Millau viaduct.

In this programme they carried out a series of tests to compare the strengths of chain against rope. In these tests the programme used our tensile load cell with a readout linked to a laptop computer to record the load profiles.

Active Load provides complete transducer solution designing and manufacturing strain gauge transducers.

Strain gauge transducers are designed to be Load Cells, Force Sensors, Torque Sensors, Pressure Transducers and any other strain related product.

Active Load will incorporate the strain gauge cells with a strain gauge amplifier to achieve an enhanced signal. Many of our strain gauge load cells are designed to be in the form of load monitoring pins to measure rope tension. Other forms taken are as load monitoring links and compressive load cell.
