Strain gauges are designed to electrically detect “strain,” minuit mechanical changes occurring in response to applied force.
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.
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.
