Multi-Grid Strain Gauges for Multi-Axis Force/Torque Sensors

Expanding Application Range of One Strain Gauge

Nowadays robots play a more and more important role in the modern manufacturing which require a high automation level. This trend leads to the growing demand of the multi-axis force/torque sensors, e.g., model 8691 from BCM SENSOR.

With 22-year experience with strain gauges, force sensors and torque sensors, BCM SENSOR is the expert to provide the compact and customized metal foil strain gauges for multi-axis force sensor applications. The picture herewith shows the recently designed patterns as an example:

The pattern on the left combines 4 shear grids into one strain gauge, and forms the Wheatstone Bridge Circuit. The pattern on the right combines 4 shear and 1 linear grids, and has its dimensions of backing layer of only 5mm x 5mm.

Such patterns can significantly increase your production efficiency and/or minify your sensor dimensions.
