Installation Tools and Accessories
General Information and Selection
General Information and Selection
There is a strong element of craftsmanship involved in
making consistently successful strain gage installations.
As for any other field, this craft has its own special tools
and working materials—found by seasoned professionals
to be most effective for achieving the desired results.
The installation accessories described on this and the
following pages represent the distillation of many years’
experience in determining the most appropriate tool or
material for each task in the gage installation process.
Every accessory item listed here has been thoroughly
tested and evaluated in the Micro-Measurements
Applications Engineering Laboratory for quality and
reliability, for ease of use, and for compatibility with
all other Micro-Measurements products. It should
be noted that the instruction bulletins supplied for
gages, adhesives, protective coatings, etc. assume the
availability of these accessories to the user, since such
is generally the case for an experienced practitioner in a
well-equipped laboratory.
