New White Paper Helps OEM Design Engineers Navigate the Force Transducer Selection Process
Date:6/16/2009

Design engineers have always faced unique challenges in specifying force sensors, or force transducers. With an abundance of available force sensors on the market, from load cells to strain gauges to thin and flexible resistive technology, selecting the right sensor for a particular application can be overwhelming. "Force Sensors for Design," a newly-published white paper from force sensor experts Tekscan, Inc. illustrates how to find a force transducer with the right combination of performance, cost, turnaround-time, engineering support from the manufacturer, and more.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 16, 2009 -- OEM design engineers have always faced unique challenges in specifying force sensors, or force transducers. "Force Sensors for Design," a newly-published white paper from Machine Design magazine and force sensor experts Tekscan, Inc. illustrates that, in addition to finding a force transducer with the right performance specifications, challenges include issues such as cost, turnaround-time, engineering support from the manufacturer, customization capabilities, off-the-shelf options for prototyping and/or lower quantities, and more. With an abundance of available force sensors on the market, from load cells to strain gauges to thin and flexible resistive technology, selecting the right sensor for a particular application can be overwhelming. In addition, with more and more engineers working across disciplines in their positions, many product designers find themselves in unfamiliar territory at times. Proper guidance is essential.

Tekscan, Inc. demonstrates a commitment to helping product designers and OEMs overcome these challenges. This eBook combines an educational background about the various types of force sensing technology on the market with real-life examples of customers who have benefited from FlexiForce®, Tekscan's thin and flexible, but accurate, sensing technology. Force transducer customers profiled include medical device manufacturers, wireless systems designers, industrial product designers, and more. After reading this white paper, OEMs and product designers will understand why Michele Mordacq, President of SSI Wireless and a FlexiForce user, asserts, "From all the available force sensing technologies, we selected the FlexiForce as the best combination of durability, price, and accuracy."

"Force Sensors for Design" helps engineers understand the options and arms them with the right questions to ask a potential supplier.
