Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 18, 2009
Tekscan, Inc, a leading manufacturer of thin-film pressure and force sensors and pressure measurement systems, announces high temperature, tactile pressure sensors for use in environments up to 200 °Celsius (400 °Fahrenheit).
These ultra-thin (0.2 mm, 0.008 in), high temperature, matrix based, pressure sensors are ideal tools for making non-intrusive pressure measurements between mating surfaces. Such measurements are extremely important in a variety of applications, including web handling and converting, print rollers and nips, packaging, heat sealing, laminating, and injection molding.
The pressure sensors and systems can be used to:
- Measure pressure distribution between any two mating or contacting surfaces,
- Identify peak pressure hot spots and low pressure gaps,
- Record pressure distribution and force changes over time
When used with the I-Scan® pressure measurement system, data derived from these sensors can be used to reduce machine set-up time, improve trouble shooting, conduct quality control inspections on machinery and parts, assist in product design and validation, and general testing.
