Load cells are frequently used with arbor presses as auditing tools to gauge the amount of force required for a press fit or riveting process.
- Arbor presses are used to perform press fit and riveting processes. Quality Assurance Engineers utilize load cells to verify that the forces applied meet the process’ specifications.
- In the above diagram, Lorenz’s CB50X has been positioned underneath the arbor press ram.
- As the engineer operates the press, measurement feedback can be displayed on either the GM77 or IPC50, or streamed through USB directly onto a PC.
This data can then be examined by the Q.A. department to confirm whether or not the operation meets the specifications.
