Strain gauges are designed to electrically detect “strain,” minuit mechanical changes occurring in response to applied force.
They are used not only for machines and moving objects but also in various fields including electrical equipment, civil engineering, building construction, chemicals and medicine. Strain gages enable detection of imperceptible elongations or shrinkages occurring in structures.
Stress is an important factor to confirm the strength and safety of structures. KYOWA strain gages are available for measurement of varied types of strain, from static strain to dynamic strain occurring at higher than 100 kHz and impact-initiated strain.
KYOWA strain gages also provide a wide range of applications and can
conveniently be applied to structures of varied materials and shapes.
In addition, strain gages are used as sensing elements for measuring load, pressure, acceleration,displacement and torque. Thus, they are widely utilized not only in experiments and research but also for industrial measurement and control.
LORDCO offers an extensive range of strain gauges, please enquire for further information.
