Custom-Made Load Pin

load pins force measurementLoad measuring pins or just load pins are connecting pins between force-transmitting machine elements that simultaneously enable the measurement of the transverse forces. These measuring pins thus assume the function of a conventional connecting element with additional measurement of the tensile and compressive forces acting on it. They replace regular pins or bolts and measure the stress that these components experience. The measurement is carried out using built-in strain gages (DMS). Load pins can be used to monitor forces in machines, cranes, elevators and systems.

Residual stress is the mechanical stress that occurs in structural parts and materials, but cannot be traced back to external operating loads. The causes of such internal stresses are manufacturing processes such as casting, welding, heat treatment or mechanical processing.

Strain Gauge Application

dms applikation

In mechanical engineering, mechanical components can also be converted into measuring instruments (DMS) through the application of strain gauges. You provide octogon with the mechanical components, or octogon visits you directly at your company to determine the forces acting on your components.
