Novatech Measurements have undertaken a major development programme to design
a low range force transducer with the ultimate goal of resolving forces down to 1
The device is a compact loadcell operating in compression mode as standard.
There is a growing market for such a device, given the growth in miniaturisation especially
through Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and nanotechnology. The loadcell bridges the gap between
existing low force sensors and specialist techniques like the atomic force microscope which is very limited
for many industrial applications.
If you need to measure very small forces we would be interested to hear about your requirements.
