Strain Gauges

Strain gauges

Strain gauges are usually installed on a surface whether it is for stress analysis, to measure applied force or for load cell sensor production. A strain gauge measures strain of a material or structure at the point where it is installed. When a material deflects the strain gauge will vary its nominal resistance. This change can be used to determine force, weight, pressure, tension, compression, torsion and torque.

Zemic is a leading manufacturer and designer of strain gauges and force sensors. We offer a full range of strain gauges.

On this page you see the strain gauges we offer. Our experts are ready to give you more information about temperature compensation, type of strain gauges and the wheatstone bridge. So we can help you make a choice. For any questions, please contact us.

What are the different types of strain gauges?

At Zemic Europe we define different strain gauge types.
We can describe them by different characteristics.

To determine which kind of strain gauge you need, you can use these characteristics as filter options on this page:

- Grid material: Constantan foil, Karma foil 
- Backing material: Polyimide, Phenolic Resin, etc.
- Geometry: for example Lineair strain gauge, full bridge strain gauge
- Rated nominal resistance: the resitance varies from 60 Ohm till 4000 Ohm
- Application

To order your strain gauge(s), you can also use our strain gauge selector. You can choose the exact specifications of the strain gauge you need (like material and dimensions) and then we will contact you to help you to select the right product.

Zemic produces strain gauges

Zemic is a strain gauge manufacturer. All of our strain gauges are produced according to the OIML R62 regulations and the RoHS environmental directives. They are also in accordance with the needs for sophisticated stress analysis and high-precision strain gauge sensors.

With professional technology Zemic is able to produce an annual output of over 50 million stable, reliable and first-class quality strain gauges. These are divided in different types and over a thousand different specifications. Thanks to sustainable and efficient technology research and development systems, Zemic maintains the strict quality assurance system.

Each package of strain gauges we deliver contains a specific datasheet. On this datasheet you can find all the information of the strain gauge, the quantity, production date and batch number.
