Improving Gun Safety with Force Measurement

In an effort to reduce the incidence of accidental gun discharge, The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has been modifying their standard, off-the-shelf firearms to require a greater amount of force to activate the trigger. Following any shooting incident, the weapon is immediately sent to NYPD's Firearms Laboratory for a battery of tests. Among those tests, the trigger pull force was...

Force Gages

Jaw Force Gauges measure grip on workpieces.

With Jaw Force Gauges, users can accurately measure force applied to each chuck jaw independently, so that problems can be diagnosed and corrected before failure occurs. Reading in pounds of chucking force per jaw is holding force available for that specific jaw. Providing force range from 0–30,000 lb, gauges are suitable for chucks from 6–18 in. Gauges identify potential safety hazards...
