Welcome Educators and Students!
Micro-Measurements has been committed to supporting the educational community for more than four decades. Time and time again, we hear from the educational community that our strain gage technology is an integral part of well-balanced engineering and engineering technology education programs.
Because Today’s Students Are Tomorrow’s Colleagues
Our product offerings and programs are thoughtfully designed to engage engineering and technology students in hands-on learning. Prepare your students for their future careers with our comprehensive collection of rigorous and student-friendly materials like Experiments in Mechanics—a series of exercises designed around the simple cantilever beam that allows students to learn mechanics using experimental stress analysis technology.
We offer discounts on general-purpose strain gages; a selection of Student Strain Gages; and an extended warranty program for instrumentation purchased for use in the teaching laboratory.
Micro-Measurements offers three CEA-Series strain gages (patterns: 120CZA, 120FZ and 240UZA), specially designed and priced for making strain measurements in the teaching laboratory. These gages are manufactured from the same materials, by the same processes, and to the same high-quality standards as our regular line of strain gages.
- encapsulated 120 Ω constantan metal foil grids on tough, flexible polyimide backings
- copper coated solder tabs
- produced in both 06 ppm/°F and 13 ppm/°F self-temperature compensations
- for use on most steels and on aluminum alloys
Pre-Gaged Beams are instrumented with Micro-Measurements temperature-compensated foil strain gages. The strain gage installations are fully wired, covered with a clear protective coating and factory tested for resistance, stability, and freedom from creep. Beams ship with a copy of the corresponding Experiment in Mechanics. Check out our Educator’s Pre-gaged Beams and Cantilever Beams.
In support of the educational community, Micro-Measurements is now making special offers for its advanced instruments families. These are popular choices for experimental use in the teaching laboratory. Contact a Micro-Measurements expert to learn more.
