Strain Gauges

stress analysis

Stress Analysis Strain Gages (Gauges)

Products and structures can, and do, break. It’s critical to determine whether a particular object made from a particular material can carry a particular load. If a true stress is ignored, the cost of not acting is usually far higher than the cost of dealing with the problem earlier.  Micro-Measurements’ complete portfolio of high-performance Stress Analysis Strain Gauges deliver strain data you can count on and help you find practical solutions to prevent potentially catastrophic events.
