Now available from HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - is the new range of M Series Strain Gauges (SGs), specifically developed to meet the demanding requirements of measuring strain in fibre composites.

New materials offering high strength, such as fibre composites, pose a major challenge for Strain Gauges used in measurement purposes, particularly when pushing components to their mechanical limit of performance. An example of this would be when a Strain Gauge, subjected to alternating loads at increased load levels, is weakened and fails earlier than the component under the test. In response to this problem, HBM has added the latest M Series of Strain Gauges to its existing range.

The new range of Strain Gauges from HBM has been specifically developed for high resistance to alternating loads, at increased strain levels and high temperatures - up to 300°C - and is available with various geometries, measuring grid lengths and temperature response matching.

Suitable for applications in aviation, automotive and power supply industries, the demand for specialist Strain Gauges is continually increasing.

HBM has been a leader in Strain Gauges for over 60 years. Its extensive range allows for an exceptionally wide range of differing strain measurement applications, from experimental stress analysis, durability testing through to transducer manufacturing. Additionally, HBM provides all the necessary accessories and components for the installation of Strain Gauges, for maximum convenience. HBM also supports its customers with training and contract installation to ensure optimum operational usage.
