Our Strength: Custom Manufactured Transducers
At tecsis LP we have in-house capabilities to design, engineer, and manufacture custom pressure transducers and load cells with the same demonstrated quality and reliability as standard products. Just follow these steps...
Step 1: Engineering
Our team of electrical, mechanical, and manufacturing engineers use advanced CAD/CAM programming to design the ideal sensor for your project. Here, we can modify an existing standard transducer, create a new product from standard parts, or create an application-specific, one-of-a-kind proprietary design just for you. It’s quicker and more cost effective than you might think. You don’t have to redesign your process; we can make a sensor that fits!
Step 2: Prototype and Test
After extensive fine-tuning of the design, and performance simulation using FEA, we are ready to make a prototype to be sure that your sensor will perform as planned. Our in-house manufacturing resources give us the ability to quickly turn these ideas into reality. Only after we prove the design do we move into the production area to execute the plan.
Step 3: Manufacturing
From incoming raw material to final calibration, our machine shop and production facility built to produce quality results every time. We use the best technology for your application, whether it is bonded foil strain gage, thin film technology, silicon strain gages or chips. We utilize state-of-the-art laser and TIG welders for unbeatable quality and our CNC milling machines give us the capability to meet virtually any specification.
Step 4: Calibration
Finally, your sensor is calibrated, in whatever units you need, on one of our NIST-traceable calibration stands. We can calibrate from 10 grams up to 1.5 million pounds (tension and compression), and from 10”H2O up to 150,000 psi. We offer 11- or 21-point calibration runs and you always get complete calibration documentation.
We love a challenge. Miniature size, special mounting fixtures, harsh environments, extreme temperatures, high capacity, low capacity – whatever you need for your application, we can make it happen. The products shown on this web site or in our catalog are only a starting point, an example of our capabilities. So tell us what you want. There’s a good chance that we’ve already manufactured one just like it!
Special mounting features are readily available for quick and easy installation into existing customer set-ups with little or no adjustment. Extended temperature compensation ranges may be requested for high- or low-temperature applications. Custom element designs can be engineered to order for a specific implementation or for OEM requirements. Individualized amplifiers can be integrated to give the necessary signal in the most convenient envelope.
Extra high precision transducers, with performance error as low as 0.03%, are available for applications with the most rigid tolerances. Many options are offered for accommodating harsh environments, such as special high-grade steel alloys, and submersible fittings and connectors.
In short, tecsis is the true leader for custom-manufactured transducers
