Load Pins

A unique strain gage transducer developed by Strainsert, the load sensing clevis pin or bolt is uses the internal strain gage process that Stainsert has perfected over the last forty years and has used for bolts and flat load cells. The force sensing clevis pin provide percision force measurement by replacing existing shear pins, clevis pins, shear axles or other varieties of pinned joints used in the Automotive, Aerospace, Marine and Military industries.

Force Sensing Tension Links

Utilizing the internal strain gage process perfected during the last forty five years, Strainsert manufactures its force sensing tension link with the same successful process it uses for its bolts, Load Pins, and Flat Load Cells. The sensing element consists of a strain gage bridge circuit internally installed in a small hole along the longitudinal axis offering a unique arrangement that offers the most effective means for the protection and sealing of the internal electronics while minimizing the unwanted effects of extraneous torsional and bending loads.
