  • Mechanical force gauge
    <h3>Mechanical force measurement</h3> <p>Our mechanical force gauges are high-precision instruments for testing the quality, strength or functionality of components or products. The mechanical force gauges from SAUTER check both compression and tension (pressure and tension). The peak force can be recorded with the needle on the tip indicator, and the tare ring compensates for the weight of the attachments. KERN force gauges consist of a high-performance metal housing and all metal components so that you can maintain your calibration for years with the right care. These mechanical dynamometers never require charging or batteries and are intrinsically safe in hazardous environments.</p> <h3>Equipment</h3> <p>Every mechanical force gauge contains a selection of tension and compression attachments. Optional compression plates, hooks, and handles provide a variety of ways to grasp and apply force to specimens.</p> <h3>Mechanical force measuring ranges</h3> <p>Force testers are available in areas with low capacities up to 10 N or kg with a measurement accuracy of up to ± 0.05 N. High capacity force testers range up to 500 N or kg with a measurement accuracy of up to ± 2.5 N.</p> <p>SAUTER is certified according to ISO 9001 and every measuring device is calibrated according to an ISO / IEC 17025 accredited laboratory.</p>
  • Digital force gauges...
    <h3>Digital force gauges</h3> <p>The digital force gauges from SAUTER have selectable units, programmable high / low setpoints and output peaks or continuous data for acquisition using optional data acquisition software in USB, RS232, digital and analog formats. The digital measuring devices from SAUTER with low capacity measure ranges up to 10 N, the measuring devices with high capacity measure up to 1000 N and our force measuring device with external measuring cell even measures up to 100000 N. Each set contains a selection of attachments and a hard plastic carrying case .</p> <p>Mount a force gauge on a test bench for highly specialized force measurement applications such as:</p> <ul><li>- Peel tester for packaging, tapes and laminates</li> <li>- Pull the testers by the terminals to crimp</li> <li>- Breakdown testers for the strength of wall panels, packaging and fruit hardness</li> <li>- Spring tester for compression or tension springs</li> <li>- Pressure tester for springs and switches</li> <li>- Strength testers for adhesives and welds</li> <li>- Drag the scales for weight or trigger sensitivity</li> </ul>

  • Motorized test stands
    <p>SAUTER offers simple and advanced motorized test stands that are available in standard, high and low speeds.</p> <p>Use SAUTER force measuring devices with test stands to enable force control and non-destructive testing.</p> <p>Use one of the SAUTER force measuring devices and special accessories from the standard series to create a special force measuring system for pushing, pulling, snapping, peeling, penetrating, etc.</p> <p>SAUTER vertical motorized force measuring stands are suitable for most types of applications. Motorized test stands are available in ranges up to 50 kN. All vertical SAUTER test stands can be force controlled. Connect a SAUTER force measuring device to a vertical test stand to use the force control functions. SAUTER stands are also available in different speed ranges and can also measure the distance with an optional range finder.</p> <p>SAUTER horizontal motorized force measuring stands are suitable for most types of applications. Horizontal test stands are ideal for testing large specimens because the base plate can be removed. Motorized test stands are available in ranges up to 500 N. All SAUTER horizontal test stands can be force controlled. Connect a SAUTER force measuring device to a horizontal motorized test stand to use the force control functions. SAUTER stands are also available in different speed ranges and can also measure the distance with an optional range finder.</p>
  • Manual test stands
