Micro-Measurements is the world's premier source for strain gages, strain gage instrumentation, and photoelastic equipment for high-precision strain measurement. These products are used in the practice of experimental stress analysis and as the sensing elements for a wide variety of transducers.

Andruss-Peskin Corporation represents Micro-Measurements in New England and Upstate New York.

Micro-Measurements consists of the following product groups:

Micro-Measurements: Leading supplier of electrical resistance strain gages, strain gage accessories, and special resistive sensors.
Instruments: Specialists in the development and manufacture of static and dynamic strain gage instrumentation.
Photolastic: Experts in the field of photoelasticity, offering a wide range of equipment and materials for using this technique.
Education: Innovators of technical teaching aids for schools to broaden the knowledge of teachers, engineers, and technicians in the use of strain gages and photoelasticity for experimental stress analysis.

Micro-Measurements has an excellent Web site with information on the company, its products, and technical support information. We invite you to visit the Micro-Measurements's Web site.

Strain Gage Catalog Precision Strain Gages

The Precision Strain Gage Catalog lists a wide range of precision metal-foil strain gages and special purpose sensors manufactured by Micro-Measurements. The catalog describes the types of gages available, the steps in selecting a gage, and the designation system used. Information on strain gage self-temperature compensation, gage resistance, gage factor, transverse sensitivity, strain gage adhesives, and gage dimensions is provided.

Photoelastic Equipment PhotoStress® Instrumentation

Micro-Measurements supplies a broad range of products for photoelastic testing. Photoelasticity is a full-field technique used in stress analysis testing. The technology embraces three broad categories:
  • PhotoStress® or photoelastic coating.
  • Two-dimensional model analysis
  • Three-dimensional model analysis
The literature describes these techniques and the materials and instrumentation used in these methods of stress analysis.
