Injection molding Measuring closing pressure

Strain gages can determine the closing pressure by measuring the deflection of the backstop. Using this method both static and dynamic clamping forces can be monitored with high accuracy. These state of the art sensors are easy to incorporate. A wide selection of types facilitates incorporation in various mounting situations. Sensors are available in a range of sensitivities.
