The expertise of PENKO Engineering
B.V. in high speed and high resolution accurate measurement technique is a vital
attribute in force measurement applications especially when it comes to destructive
material investigations and the exact break force indication is a guaranteed requirement.
For purposes of production control and safety, testing
of materials is done based on force measurement.
Accurate high-speed measurements can be conducted for a wide
range of dynamic compression/ tension, torque and load applications by applying
a combination of the advanced PENKO force measurement indicator display and a
high-quality strain gauge transducer. For
these applications special, metal fatigue rated load cells and torque sensors
guarantee continuous reliable measuring results.
measurement systems continuously monitor the strain gauge output at 1600
measurements per second and provide 16-bit outputs assigned to the track,
max/min peak, and hold or TIR functions.
Destructive tests include break force
detection and elongation at breakpoint of concrete elements, tow ropes and
anchor chains etc.
