The Right Sensors for Measuring Load, Force, Torque, Pressure

Inside every force measurement device is one or more strain gauges. These are the extremely thin sensors embedded into load cells, load pins, bending beams, force transducers, and tension links. The durability and accuracy of these sensors are key, but just as important is the proper placement of the strain gauge in a device.

What’s more, manufacturers of force sensing elements can choose from many types of strain gauge sensors: thin-film, bonded foil, semiconductor, silicon chip, and others. Each has its pros and cons. For optimal performance and the best value, it is important to choose the right technology.
