Cooper offers load cells and a variety of other products for structural testing of aircraft or testing of individual components of aircraft. We offer single and dual bridge configurations for different data acquisition/control requirements, as well as aircraft cable tension meters and torque load cells. Our Pancake series of precision and ultra precision load cells are used for static testing and we do offer many of these for fatigue testing, up to 100,000,000 fully reversed cycles. Aerospace companies such as Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, Bombardier, NASA, Alliant Tech Systems and Cessna have depended on Cooper for a variety of their testing needs. While structural test applications utilize many types of Load Cells, Cooper also offers a wide variety of Load Washers, Load Buttons and Miniature Tension & Compression Load Cells for test, production and control monitoring applications.
