When it comes to converting mechanical quantities like force, torque and pressure into electrical values, strain gauge technology offers both strong performance and low cost.
HBM offers strain gauges available with various creep compensation values specifically designed for transducer manufacturing. The selection shown on this page includes the most commonly used patterns.
We have an archive of hundreds of other strain gauge designs which are already in use. If we cannot fulfill your demands with one of these patterns, a dedicated project team will design customized strain gauges to meet your needs.
After preparing the surface of the transducer, the rest is simple:
- Position the strain gauge
- Fix the strain gauge with a piece of tape
- Clamping and curing according to instruction manual
HBM has vast application knowledge and proven ability to help OEMs add strain gage based pressure, force, reactionary torque or load measurements to their product. When catalog sensors are not an option, HBM can design a custom sensor solution all the way through to the final product, including verification and validation.
