Force and Deformation Analysis using Strain Gage

Strain Gage is typically used to measure force, torsion, and pressure. Using the principle of the Wheatstone bridge, his device measures positive or negative extensions through transforming mechanical behavior into an electrical signal. The strain gage produces a direct reading of longitudinal deformation in the material being studies.

 

In order to use the strain gage to measure deformation, we use the adhesive cyanoacrylate.  We also use soft welding for the connection.  We use technology from National Instruments for data acquisition.  Their cards allow us to measure up to 64 points in real time.

 

Currently, we recommend deformation analysis in order to ensure that our client’s machinery is not being overloaded thus guaranteeing and lengthening the use life of these machines and avoiding future production losses due to unexpected stoppages.
