Quartz Force Rings suit punching and stamping operations.

With hermetically sealed stainless steel construction, ICP® and charge output piezoelectric force rings are suited for rapidly changing dynamic compression and impact tests from 10-100,000 lb. Sensors are designed for measurement of fast, transient forces, and are capable of monitoring low-level dynamic force fluctuations over higher static loads. They offer amplitude linearity of 1% FS and...

Transducer measures tension in tight spaces.

Based on dual-beam design, Model C transducer, THN is a strain-gauge, tension-measuring device used in pairs that mount opposed in machine web path. Each end of idler roll shaft fits securely into THN transducer coupling to create tension-sensing idler roll. Made of stainless steel and aluminum, transducer offers single-bolt mounting and load ratings from 25-800 lb. It is 1Â-¾ in. wide and...
