Gaging Services

3PS offers strain gage installation services for those customers who do not have the capability or capacity to perform the strain gage bonding process. Strain gages can be installed on many products and components to verify finite element models, measure static and dynamic forces or to create custom load transducers.

3PS is an ISO 9001 company led by skilled engineers and technicians with over 30 years’ experience in producing strain gage based load cells. Our engineers can help you identify the type of strain gages and bonding material needed for your application and determine the best location to bond the strain gages on your part. We specialize in bonding strain gages in difficult locations which are subjected to extreme environmental conditions.
