Strain Gauge Installation Service

This service is aimed at
strain gauge users who
do not have their own
in-house bonding
capabilities, or those
who require extra

Training: Standard workshops

Like all measurement techniques, applied correctly strain gauges will give stable, repeatable, reliable and above all accurate results. Whilst strain gauges are not a ‘black art’, they do require a level of skill and attention to detail; they cannot be successfully applied with a “lick ‘em and stick ‘em” approach. Whilst all the information is available for successful installation, there is no substitute for professional hands-on training.

Custom WorkshopWe provide both in-house and external workshops. These can follow a general theme from our standard scheduled programme or can be customised to your own requirements. Our workshops involve more than 50% practical hands-on for all participants.

Aimed not just at strain gauge installation technicians and instrumentation engineers, these workshops can give essential understanding of the installation requirements to managers and inspection personnel.

All techniques are taught to the recognised BSSM standards and can lead to a formal qualification
