> Force transducers

Force transducers are used for the reliable measurement of tension and compression forces. The force transducers from WIKA can be delivered with affixed strain gauges or thin-film sensors. The strain gauge technology offers a large geometrical variety and high accuracy, and it is well suited for detecting even the smallest forces. The span of the measuring ranges of our force transducers that can be delivered stretches from 0.5 N to over 10,000 kN. Load cells with thin-film sensors are very cost-effective for special manufacture or OEM applications and also for safety-related applications due to their redundant output signals.

> Hydraulic force measurement

Hydraulic force measurement is an easy way to measure and display force in various applications. The flattened housing of this compression load cell enables a stable measuring in parallel clamps. The force measurement utilizes the hydraulic principle: The force applied to a piston generates a hydraulic pressure, which is displayed with an indicating device. The scale of the indicating device can show various units e.g. N,kN,kg, t.

> Load cells

Load cells are designed as a special form of force transducers for use in weighing equipment. They enable very high measurement accuracies between 0.01 % and 0.05 % FS. Load cells are used in platform, filling, band and packaging scales, dynamic test systems as well as electronic precision, price-labelling and industrial scales, among others. WIKA provides you with all typical and widely used load cell geometries such as single-point load cells, bending and shear beam load cells, S-type load cells, pendulum load cells and compression force load cells. In addition, there are corresponding mounting kits and complete weighing modules available.

> Engineered solutions force

When it comes to individual requirements for force measurement, we develop the appropriate solutions in conjunction with you. For the optimal geometry and the perfect positioning of the force sensor, we employ the finite element method (FEM). With this, the design data are evaluated and real situations simulated. Our manufacturing lines are also designed for prototypes, special geometries and small batches.
