Precise Force Measurement Tools

If materials testing or force measurement are critical to your operation, it’s necessary that your metrological equipment be reliable and accurate. This ensures that your production process is working as intended and that your measurements are accurate. Which, in the long run, saves you time, money, and potentially unexpected downtime.

Over time and repeated use, equipment may become less accurate and movements less precise. This is a problem in particular for force testing equipment. For instance, if continuous force is applied to a force gauge, the measurement of that force may drift over time. That’s why it’s important to utilize equipment or instrumentation from a reputable manufacturer that has traceable calibration. Which is the exact kind of products provided to manufacturers and laboratory operations by Cross Precision Measurement.

Take a look at our product offering. If you see the tool that you need, Cross can provide it for you. And if you don’t see the exact equipment your operation requires, there’s a good chance we can develop it for you.

If you’re unable to find the exact force testing materials you need right off the shelf, Cross can still help. Our engineering team can create the force measurement solution your product or operation needs.
