    Dedicated In-House Bonding Room

    We know that the quality of the strain gauge installation greatly influences the accuracy of the final results.  Strain gauges can only measure material strain accurately, consistently and reliably if they are intimately and expertly bonded to the surface.

    That’s where we come in.  Our in-house team of strain gauge specialists offer a full design, bonding and wiring service from one-off projects through to high-volume applications.  Our UK-based on-site strain gauge room is continually monitored throughout to ensure top quality and high precision.

    Our On-Site Strain Gauging Facility

    Strain Gauge Load Cell

    Our on-site temperature-controlled strain gauge bonding room has a steady temperature, humidity and airflow to give optimum ambient conditions for strain gauge work at all times.

    Strict ultrasonic cleaning procedures and surface preparation processes ensure that dust and dirt particles cannot contaminate the substrate onto which the strain gauges will be placed.  Bonding is carried out immediately after the surface has been cleaned to ensure a flawless bond between the strain gauge and the sensing surface.  These procedures are coupled with high-accuracy marking techniques and microscopes to guarantee the precise positioning of the strain gauges and give the best possible sensing performance.

    Special adhesives are used depending on the material, type of strain gauge and environmental conditions of your application.  Recommendations by our expert strain gauge team will be discussed with you before the process begins.
