Application Note: Transfer Line Load Monitoring

Application note coverThe transfer lines are often subjected to substantial loads and forces during the transfer process. Recently, a transfer line that was being used to transfer automobile bodies on a body weld line began experiencing problems with pin shear as a direct result of the force required to move the parts.

A Sciemetric test and analysis system was used and provided a quick and easy solution to the problem. The system was configured to monitor and collect for fifteen seconds the compression and tension force data from a load cell configured on a transfer line (the entire process occurred in eleven seconds).
