About Force Gauges
Force gauges are a type of measuring device used to measure the amount of force being applied to an object. They are commonly used in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, and engineering.
Types of Force Gauges
Force gauges come in many different shapes and sizes depending on their purpose. Some are designed for light-duty applications while others are made for heavy-duty use. There are also different types of force gauges that measure either compression or tension forces.
How Force Gauges Are Made
Force gauges typically consist of a load cell, display unit, and software that allows users to control the device's readings. The load cells contain strain gauge sensors which detect changes in electrical resistance when force is applied. The display unit shows the readings from the load cell while the software provides calibration and data logging capabilities.
Industries That Use Force Gauges
Force gauges are widely used by professionals across many industries such as automotive, aerospace, medical device manufacturing, and robotics. Professionals use force gauges to measure static or dynamic forces on parts during assembly or testing processes.Find the Force Gauges You Need at Zoro
