Zemic Europe delivers a wide range of custom made force sensors and strain gauges to the consumer electronics industry.
The consumer electronics industry is a sector with a high innovation level. Innovations often involve the use of force measurement to add a new function. We see a lot of products which were upgraded or newly developed with a weighing option or force measurement tool.
We are proud to be a partner for many consumer electronics companies. Our experts like to think along with you about how forces can be measured in any application. We offer a wide range of miniature force sensors and strain gauges suitable for consumer electronic appliances. With our large R&D department we are also able to develop a customized force sensor or strain gauge. We can build the prototype series and also produce on a large scale.
Due to the demand for ultra-thin, small size and light weight strain gauges, we have developed strain gauges only weighing 0.008 gram. Their thickness is only 0.045mm!
At Zemic Europe we divide the consumer electronics market into the following 4 main segments:
1. Personal Computers
Pressure measurement is often used in this segment. This is done by integrating strain gauges or miniature sensors. Two examples in this segment are smart pencils and touch pads.
2. Personal care devices
A lot of innovation is taking place in this industry. The use of strain gauges or miniature sensors often ensures greater ease of use. Think of smart toothbrushes or smart shavers.
3. Leisure and entertainment
In this branch we see often new functionality being added to existing consumer applications, for example the E-bike. Entirely new applications are also being created, such as smart glasses.
4. Home appliances or home electronics
By adding force measurement to electronics home appliances, traditional applications give a new outstanding consumer experience. An example of this is a smart washing machine, which even saves on water consumption and electricity.

Electric bicycles, commonly known as e-bikes, have gained immense popularity in recent years due to their ability to blend human pedaling power with electric assistance, resulting in an efficient and eco-friendly mode of transportation. With advancements in technology, e-bikes have seen significant improvements in terms of power delivery, range, and overall performance. One crucial aspect that contributes to these enhancements is the integration of force sensors and strain gauges in e-bike designs. In this article, we will explore the role of force sensors in e-bikes and how they enhance the riding experience.
In the fast-paced world of retail, the Grab and Go concept has revolutionized the way customers shop. To ensure a seamless and efficient experience, accurate measurements are paramount. This is where our load cells, a key component of weighing systems, play a vital role. Let's explore how the load cells of Zemic Europe contribute to the success of Grab and Go in the retail market:
Our load cells are specialized sensors that convert the weight or force applied to them into an electrical signal. In Grab and Go retail environments, load cells deliver precise weight measurements of products. Whether it's a pre-packaged sandwich, a bottled drink, or a snack, load cells ensure that the weight is accurately determined. This guarantees correct pricing and precise inventory management. Our object identification systems are the most suitable load cells for these applications.
