Mechanical Force Gauges

U-Force Slim-line Mechanical Force Gauge


The Model U Force Gauge is an accurate (±1% of full range) mechanical compression measurement instrument. Its slim-line design has repeatedly proven valuable in installations where space is at a premium.

The versatility of this simple instrument is demonstrated by the fact that it can be used as a hand-held device, permanently mounted on a flat surface plate, or used in test fixtures.

The Model U Force Gauge employs a deflection beam machined from aircraft quality alloy steel and heat-treated to develop optimum strength and spring characteristics.
A precision dial indicator is mounted at the null point of this beam.
The compression force is normally applied against a single pressure fitting mounted on the upper half of the beam. When the load is exerted, the beam moves downward causing a slanted anvil on the free end to push against the indicator plunger. The indicator reading is a direct representation of the applied load.

U-Force Gauges are available for measurement in pounds or kilograms. There are 6-pound capacities ranging from 25 x .25 to 5,000 x 50 lb. The 4 kilogram capacities range from 10 x .1 to 500 x 5 kg.
