Tekscan Now Offering Digital Tactile Pressure Analysis: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Share Article

Tekscan, Inc. is now offering a free digital tactile pressure analysis to customers who purchase their first roll of Prescale Pressure Indicating Film from the company. Digital analysis of Prescale Pressure Indicating Film helps resolve design problems and quality assurance issues by providing concrete data such as peak pressure, average pressure, 3-D image displays, and more. Armed with this data, engineers can adjust product design, enhance product performance, and prevent costly mistakes.

Prescale film rounds out our product range, offering our customers an even wider variety of pressure measurement options. Whether you need static or dynamic pressure measurements, single or multi-use sensors, a peak-pressure snapshot or detailed data analysis, Tekscan can provide the optimal solution.

Digital analysis of Prescale Pressure Indicating Film helps resolve design problems and quality assurance issues by providing concrete data such as peak pressure, average pressure, 3-D image displays, and more. Armed with this data, engineers can adjust product design, enhance product performance, and prevent costly mistakes.

Prescale pressure indicating film consists of microencapsulated color forming and developing material. When pressure is applied to the thin and flexible film, a red color impression is formed in varying density according to the amount of pressure and pressure distribution. This visual assessment of static tactile pressure is helpful in answering questions related to product development and performance. Specific applications include evaluating surface evenness and contact uniformity in gaskets, nip rollers, presses, heat sinks, and more.

Tekscan's President, Steve Jacobs, explains, "Prescale film rounds out our product range, offering our customers an even wider variety of pressure measurement options. Whether you need static or dynamic pressure measurements, single or multi-use sensors, a peak-pressure snapshot or detailed data analysis, Tekscan can provide the optimal solution."

Detailed pressure data takes analysis to the next level. The Digital Analysis System for Prescale is ideal for those who require data beyond visual assessments of color variations and pressure patterns. The system digitalizes Prescale film output to produce on-screen pressure variation, image enlargement, 3-D image display, and more.

Tekscan is demonstrating the value of this data by offering their customers who purchase a roll of Prescale film to send up to two (2) feet of their used film back to Tekscan for digital pressure analysis. Customers will receive a custom color pressure map, 3D wire frame image, pressure cross-section view, and data such as average pressure and maximum pressure.
