Micro-Measurements, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) brand, is dedicated to the development, manufacturing, and marketing of resistive-foil sensors for high-precision strain measurement. Micro-Measurements offers a comprehensive selection of strain gages, PhotoStress® equipment and coatings, data acquisition systems, and supplies necessary to obtain accurate, reliable stress data. Our products are used throughout the industrialized world — both in the practice of stress measurements analysis and as the sensing elements in a wide variety of transducers for measuring physical variables (weight, force, torque, pressure, etc.).
Micro-Measurements was founded in the early 1960’s. A few years after its founding, both Micro-Measurements and its sister division, Photolastics, became part of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. In July 2010, Vishay Intertechnology spun off its precision measurement and foil technology businesses, which became Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG).
Located near Raleigh, North Carolina, a hub of Research and Development, Micro-Measurements offers a full products portfolio of the sensors, instrumentation, and installation accessories necessary to obtain accurate, reliable strain and stress data. Our strain gages and accessories also fulfill manufacturers' requirements for a wide variety of transducers for measuring physical variables (weight, force, torque, pressure).
Vishay Precision Group, Inc. is an internationally recognized designer, manufacturer and marketer of components based on its resistive foil technology; sensors; and sensor-based measurements systems specializing in the growing markets of stress, force, weight, pressure, and current measurements. VPG is a market leader of foil technology products, providing ongoing technology innovations in precision foil resistors and foil strain gages, which are the foundation of the company’s force sensors products and its weighing and control systems. The product portfolio consists of a variety of well-established brand names recognized for precision and quality in the marketplace. To learn more, visit VPG at www.vpgsensors.com.
