Force Sensing Categories

Checkweighers (202 suppliers)

Checkweighers are weighing systems used to verify that the weight of a product is within prescribed limits.

Dynamometers (87 suppliers)

Dynamometers are used in motor and engine testing. These devices apply braking or drag resistance to rotation, and measure torque at various speeds and power input levels.

Force and Load Sensors (564 suppliers)

Force and load sensors covers electrical sensing devices used to measure tension, compression, and shear forces.

Force and Torque Instruments (293 suppliers)

Force and torque instruments are used to measure force, weight or torque. Some can measure force and torque by changing the sensor / transducer.

Impact Hammers (57 suppliers)

Impact hammers are used in structural and modal analysis to determine component or system response to impacts of varying amplitude and duration. A hammer with a force transducer in its head is paired with an accelerometer on the component being tested to compare impact and response.

Laboratory Balances (235 suppliers)

Laboratory balances are used to measure an object’s mass to a very high degree of precision.

Load Cells (404 suppliers)

Load cells are force sensors that often incorporate mechanical packaging to fit into testing and monitoring systems. They can be used for tension, compression, and/or shear measurement, and can be configured to measure force or load along one or more axes. 

Scales and Balances (937 suppliers)

Scales and balances are used to measure static or dynamic loads for a wide range of industrial applications.

Six-axis Force and Torque Sensors (16 suppliers)

Six-axis force and torque sensors measure the full six components of force and torque: vertical, lateral, and longitudinal forces as well as camber, steer, and torque movements.

Strain Gauges (123 suppliers)

Strain gauges are measuring elements that convert force, pressure, tension, etc., into an electrical signal.

Tension Meters (72 suppliers)

Tension meters are instruments that measure tension in cable, fiber, belts and webs, or sheets.

Torque Sensors (200 suppliers)

Torque sensors, gauges, instruments, and switches are used to measure torque in a variety of applications.

Traction and Tension Dynamometers (25 suppliers)

Traction dynamometers and tension dynamometers are used to measure force in tension, traction and weighing applications with cables, guy wires and chain.

Web Tension Indicators (38 suppliers)

Web tension indicators measure and report tension parameters in web or other flat-sheet production processes. Some types of web tension indicators have control functionality as well.

Web Tension Sensors (40 suppliers)

Web tension sensors are used to measure static or running tension in webs or sheets during the manufacture of textiles, paper, and other sheet materials.

Weigh Modules (159 suppliers)

Weigh modules are sub-assemblies that incorporate a load cell and are designed to be mounted to tanks, trucks, bins, silos and other applications requiring the incorporation of an integrated weighing system.

Weights (108 suppliers)

Weights are masses in the form of blocks, knobbed weights, wires, grip handle weights, hook weights, clip-on weights, and bolt-on weights. Weights are used for calibrating scales, mechanical testing, load testing, deadweights for pressure calibrators, bal
