The Difference Between Force Measurement Techniques
Engineers in many industries need reliable ways to measure compressive force, either during product development or as an embedded component within a product or device. In industrial automation, machines must measure and regulate the forces they apply to the objects with which they interact. Medical devices and human-machine-interfaces (HMIs) need to measure force as well, albeit on a much smaller and more precise scale. This whitepaper explores the differences between the most common force measurement techniques.
