Reliable quality and high performance

Dedicated to a lifelong business partnership, every bonding product is rigorously inspected to ensure it meets or exceeds expectations, and meets all safety and functionality requirements before it is released for mass production. We are eager to explore new markets and industries and partner with you to pioneer new capabilities.

Your Global Solution Partner

Our strain gage installation service is designed with your needs as our top priority. No project is too big or too small -- we are ready to help you whether you need fulfillment for a single piece or a high volume order. We maintain an inventory of several gage patterns and installation materials, which means that some projects can be completed in a single work day to meet many tight deadlines. With services offered in the United States, Europe, Middle East and Asia, your solution is just a phone call away. 

Torque Tensioning Hand Tool

Torque Tensioning on Hand Tools

Challenge: Hand tools designed for torque tensioning applications have limited space for a solution that can inform the user when too much torque is applied. Applying too much torque results in damage to a bolt's screw thread. 
Solution:  Using a VPG Transducers strain gage on a critical component within the hand tool solves this issue, resulting in more productivity and efficiency.

mobile x-ray devices

Mobile X-Ray Machine

Challenge: X-ray machines are typically heavy, which makes the machine slow and cumbersone to move. 
Solution: Custom strain gages can be installed in areas where force is exerted. These gages send a signal to a motor that drives the X-ray machine's wheels, enabling the operator to easily transport the X-ray machine to its destination.

technical support

Technical support

Not all projects require a complex installation. Sometimes a simple, low cost, low volume custom strain gage-based sensor is the answer. VPG Transducers is your resource. We can supply the technical support to help you design the perfect solution for your requirement without compromising on quality.

Harsh environment solutions

Challenge: Protection is often overlooked when creating a strain measurement solution or custom force sensor. Extreme environments require special installation techniques and materials, including coatings. 
Solution: Our experts have the experience to use the appropriate high quality components to protect our installations from harsh environments such as hot oil, salt water, high and low temperatures and mechanical damage. Our strain gage-based solutions have been successfully used from the bottom of the ocean to outer space and many areas in between.

High temperature solution

Challenge: Requirement for strain measurements in high temperature environments.
Solution: High temperature bonding applications are a common requirement and challenge for many strain gage manufacturers.  Our high-precision strain gages are produced in-house and capable of operating reliably in temperatures in excess of 1,000°C.

Miniature dimension strain gage

Challenge: Ultra-miniature strain gage installations with grid sizes as small as 0.5mm x 0.5mm require specialty equipment and experience.
Solution: We have been creating many such unique installations for customers for many years.  Typical installations include quarter-bridge strain measurement and full Wheatstone bridge configurations measuring force.
