Load Cells

Load cells are physical transducers used to convert a force into an electrical signal, and have many industrial and scientific applications.

Sample load cells white paper

A white paper serves to educate your customers, showing them how and why a product may benefit them, whereas a data sheet or catalog shows them which product to use.

A white paper may include a theory of operation, authoritative references to external sources, technical diagrams, math, algorithms, test results, and other science- or engineering-related information.

American Go Association

Thousands of years old, go (also known as wei-qi and baduk) is the oldest board game still played in its original form. A very small number of simple rules allow even young children to learn the game, and yet generations of study are still yielding new strategies. It was only very recently that a computer was finally able to beat the strongest human players.

AGA logo

The AGA logo has been converted from a high-resolution scan of the original 1982 version, which was created by hand on a drafting board using pre-fabricated lettering and ink drawings. This scan was cleaned for dust, converted to a vector line drawing, then given additional custom editing to produce an optimal result while preserving the human touch and historical feel of the original.
