The Difference Between Force Measurement TechniquesSeptember 05, 2018 by Tekscan
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.
