Strain Gauge Services


Strain is the 2nd most common physical sensor measurement in the world behind temperature.  It can be used to calculate forces, pressures, displacements, and a whole variety of other mechanical material properties.  Applying strain gauges properly to get good data is a special skill, and requires an experienced technician.  Professional Testing has the capability of applying strain gauges competently, and has the instrumentation necessary for long-term and/or high channel-count data logging.  We operate in 2 modes:

  1. We apply the strain gauges in the laboratory, and take measurement in conjunction with our Vibration / Shock testing or Static Load Testing
  2. If your equipment is large and cumbersome, we can also come on-site to perform strain gauge application and/or measurement services.
