Show Summary Details


Simply waiting on Tanita to get the thin scale ready for production was not an acceptable proposition. Yet, Solly Angel was not willing to give up on the scale quest, to pass the baton, so to speak, to the next runner in the relay race to market. A new load cell, now nicknamed the owl face, was introduced. Its patent was now pending, and it was time to take it off the back burner and do something with it. Shortly after he returned from Tokyo in January 1995, he started to pay serious attention to this load cell. His new goal was to bring it to the attention of commercial and industrial scale manufacturers with the prospect of a new licensing arrangement. Moreover, the new load cell I was very sensitive, with exposed strain gages and wiring and little protection from environmental hazards of any kind.
