Custom Strain Gages and Hybrid Sensors

Micro-Measurements maintains an extensive catalogue of high performance strain gages and sensors. But from time-to-time, unique applications require tailored solutions. We can customize high performance gages tailored for your unique specifications. Whatever your specification needs are, our team of experts are committed to providing solutions for your specific application. 

 

Typical requests include:

  • unusual pattern geometries
  • special trim dimensions
  • non-standard lead wire materials or length

 

Building high performance customized gages requires careful attention to detail. From initial conversations about product goals to the final delivery of your customized gage, our team of experts will work closely with you. We use our years of successful manufacturing experience to walk you through the process of selecting the appropriate backing, foil, S-T-C, gage length, pattern, resistance and resistance tolerance, operating temperature range, test duration, maximum strain, cyclic endurance, leads, encapsulation, and trim for your product.
