Load Indicator

Load Indicator is a prominent niche technology with approximately 25 workers. The company is devoted to supplying top-notch products of strain gauges coupled with load cells specifically for increased processes as well as quality control. It also provides high-quality products, coupled with flexible production straight from prototypes to serial production.

Load Indicator will carry out lab tests on their own while conducting calibrations of the equipment used. The management is known for its expertise in:

•Surface treatment
•Soldering and lead-free protection
•Calibration- step, pull free weights.
•Moisture protection

Some of the prominent customers Load Indicator boasts of serving include international corporations, small businesses, and closely held companies. The company is also notable for operating in a variety of sectors, including the automotive industry, research, development, and medical as well as pharmaceutical sectors.

Business Concept

The business concept of Load Indicator is to make it possible for the customer to easily integrate different wire-load sensors into their products without adapting the actual regular products readily available in the industry, and with flexibility over low cost produced products. Besides, Load Indicator offers bonding strain gauges depending on the request of its clients. this implies gluing in various configurations, including single and full bridge. The strain gauges may be glued to materials such as aluminum, concrete and wood.

Understanding The Concept Of Strain Gauge

Invented in 1983 by a prominent scientist known as Edward E. Simmons, a strain gauge is one of the most significant sensors often used in the geotechnical industry in measuring the strain of different structures such as dams, tunnels, and nuclear plants. Typically, the resistance of the gauge varies with the applied force. It ends up converting parameters such as tension, force, and weight into a transition resistance that can easily be measured consequentially. Any time an external force is applied to a particular object, it changes its shape as well as the size, thereby, changing its resistance. The stress is usually the internal resisting capacity of the object while the strain refers to the extent of deformation experienced by the material.

So How Does A Strain Gauge Work?

Also referred to as a strain gauge, (a strain gauge) is a unique sensor with a varying resistance that comes with some applied force. Usually, the gauge converts force, pressure, and tension into a viable change in electrical resistance, which can be measured. When the external forces have been applied to an object, the result is stress and strain. Stress is then defined as the internal resisting force of an object.

A standard strain gauge has a flexible insulating backing to support a foil pattern. Usually, the gauge is linked to the object, which is under stress using a robust adhesive. The deformation in your object can distort the foil, which eventually changes the actual electrical resistivity of your foil. The change is measured using a Wheatstone bridge that is related to strain using a Gauge Factor.
