Transducer Class® Strain Gages: Fueling the Precision Revolution

In the world of precision engineering, your goals demand more than just tools — they demand partners that understand the language of accuracy.

At the heart of every engineering feat lies the need for precise data. Micro-Measurements understands this need intimately. Our Strain Gages (Gauges) are not just components; they are the architects of precision in your projects.

In the hands of engineers and developers, our sensors become the silent heroes, delivering real-world OEM solutions to torque, load, and force sensing challenges. Their practical design is not just about measuring strain; it's about empowering you to achieve your goals seamlessly.

As a leading manufacturer of quality strain gages for OEM solutions, Micro-Measurements has been a steadfast supporter of the sensor industry for many years. We understand that in the pursuit of precision, your goals often extend beyond the ordinary.

That's why we're excited to share how our commitment to excellence is taking a giant leap forward.

  • Exceptional gage-to-gage and grid-to-grid matching delivers more uniform gage performance with temperature changes
  • Tighter resistance tolerances - down to +/-0.1% even in high resistance gage patterns - facilitates simpler balance of the Wheatstone bridge circuitry
  • Gold-plated solder tabs (on Karma foil patterns) and Epoxy Encapsulation ensures active grid protection

Get tailored strain gages and hybrid sensors for unique specifications, including custom pattern geometries and materials. Experience consistent performance with our hybrid flex sensors, perfect for automotive, medical, and industrial applications.


Linear pattern gages are typically used in S-Beam, binocular, Reverse Bending and Dual Beam load cell and pressure transducer designs. They are available in single linear or dual linear configurations and customizable grid sizes to allow for gaging one side or both sides of the spring element.

0° - 90° PATTERNS

Bi-axial strain gages are designed for use in column load cells (to cancel bending strain) or simple cantilever applications (for gaging a single side of the spring element).


Micro-Measurements Shear/Torque Rosette Transducer Gages are designed for measuring shear strain and torque, available in individual and multiple grid patterns, and come in lengths from 0.062” (1.57 mm) to 0.250” (6.35 mm).


High resistance pattern gages are a preferred choice for low power consumption, as in electronic torque wrenches; pocket (jewelry) scales; bicycle and motorcycle sensing and testing equipment; and for applications such as wireless telemetry on rotating components.


Linear, shear, bi-axial and diaphragm (circular and linear pattern) gages, arranged as individual, half-bridge and full-bridge configurations are available in resistance values from 350 Ω to 20 kΩ.


Full-Bridge gages are a preferred choice for aerospace, medical, automotive, and subsea applications. Full-Bridge designs provide simplified, precise alignment and reduced bonding operations.


Diaphragm pattern gages are available as square-trimmed diaphragm gages (standard) or circular-trimmed diaphragm gages (optional). Different trim diameters, depending on the diaphragm size, are available. Several standard circular trim sizes are available to fit a wide range of diaphragm diameters.


This unique, high gage factor strain gage series offers increased strain sensitivity (4+ gage factor) – more than double all other foil strain gage types.


Our unique, bondable resistors deliver tighter tolerance, better stability, and shorter lead times. These innovative resistors ensure repeatable test data, when compared to previous-generation conventional resistor types.
