Stress analysis gauges

Stress Analysis Strain Gages (Gauges)

Structures can, and do, break. It’s critical to determine whether a particular object made from a particular material can carry a particular load. If a true stress is ignored, the cost of not acting is usually far higher than the cost of dealing with the problem earlier.  Micro-Measurements’ complete portfolio of high-performance Stress Analysis Strain Gages deliver strain data you can count on and help you find practical solutions to prevent potentially catastrophic events.

Special use sensors

Micro-Measurements’ Comprehensive Class of Special Use Sensors

Micro-Measurements’ comprehensive collection of special use sensors support the critical work of accurately measuring strain in the presence of high magnetic fields, finding internally destructive residulal stresses, reporting fatigue failure causing material cracks and precision measurement.

Structures can, and do, break. It’s critical to determine whether a particular object made from a particular material can carry a particular load. If a true stress is ignored, the cost of not acting exceeds the cost of understanding and resolving the problem to begin with. Micro-Measurements offers a wide variety of complementary sensors and designs the help detect stress and prevent catastrophes for stress analysis and transducer customers. Read More
