In-House Bonding

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 on-site strain gauge room is continually monitored throughout to ensure top quality and high precision.

Our On-Site Gauging Facility

Strain Gauge Load CellOur 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 precise positioning of the strain gauges and give 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.

Design Consultation

We offer a complete bridge design, strain gauge bonding and wiring service to suit your specific application.   Our engineers are available to discuss your requirements by telephone +44(0) 1189 817 339, email or in person as you prefer.  We can bond and wire strain gauges onto your own free-issued components and undertake the work to modify them if required.
