Micro-Measurements, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) brand, has launched a series of products built using its Advanced Sensors strain gage technology.
Addressing the growing demand for the sensors needed to manufacture precision transducers, Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors strain gages offer a tighter resistance tolerance, improved gage-to-gage repeatability, and better stability than standard strain gages, while their advanced fabrication process helps to significantly reduce lead times.
As the foundation of consistently reliable and precise transducers, Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors strain gages are built on a new manufacturing process using state-of-the-art equipment and tooling. This results in tighter-tolerance products with shorter manufacturing lead times as compared to conventional manufacturing techniques. Customers who have tested these new gages in their transducer products have reported more repeatable test data when compared to previous generation conventional gage types.
The new Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors process has also allowed for the development of a new multi-axis gage that incorporates both a tee-rosette and dual-shear gage on the same backing.
"A major challenge faced by transducer manufacturers is sourcing high-performance strain gages with tight tolerances, long-term stability, and high reliability that are readily available from stock or with short lead times at competitive prices," said Jim Johnson, Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors technical sales manager. "With its Advanced Sensors products, Micro-Measurements has achieved all this and reconfirmed its position as a world leader in strain measurement technology."
Samples and production quantities of the first Advanced Sensors strain gages are available now, with short lead times. Please contact customer service for delivery times for standard orders.
