NASA and Aerospace
With forty years of unrivaled experience in the marketplace, Eilon Engineering is enjoying and celebrating with great pride the more than two decades of technical collaboration and sales to NASA.
Our two major systems, Ron CraneMaster (for multiple point load monitoring) and Ron Crane Scales (for single point load monitoring), are being used by NASA and Boeing on numerous joint ventures of highly technical and futuristic partnerships. Our weighing capability ranges are from 0.25ton to 300 ton.
The trust placed in Eilon Engineering by these two leaders in the aerospace industry, is justified by our total dedication to quality and safety.
This particular operation at a NASA facility demanded the use of highly sophisticated and microscopically accurate scales to lower the upper capsule of the STARLINER precisely onto the lower capsule and be successfully joined together.
In this case the Ron CraneMaster load cells were used with easily readable handheld displays, showing a real time load map of all loading points, and minute adjustments were made as needed during the operation.
In addition, we have the versatility of being able to offer both wired and wireless load cells with easy to read indicators to suit every need and application.
Safety is always paramount to our design and development engineers:.
● Only aerospace quality steel and are used in all our products.
● All our load cells are fatigue rated according to ASME BTH-1 Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices.
● Exceptional wireless transmission range.
● Each system is 200% proof loaded.
● The load cells’ unique perpendicular design increases accuracy and safety .
Our dedicated commitment to safety and unparalleled quality control encourages world renowned organizations such as NASA, Boeing, United Launch Alliance, Ball Aerospace and Lockheed Martin to put their trust in Eilon Engineering products.
