Externally Gauged Load Pin14th Dec 2018
At LCM Systems we use down hole strain gauging techniques when manufacturing load pins. Our many years of experience has shown that it makes for a very reliable load pin, as the strain gauges are protected and fully sealed from the elements. However, occasionally a customer wants something different, and we are always happy to try to meet our customers specific requirements whenever we can. This pin is an example of an externally gauged load pin, where the strain gauges are installed in machined out pockets on the side of the load pin rather than down a central bore. The strain gauges are then sealed using an epoxy resin. If you have a special design/specification for a load pin, please get in touch with our friendly sales team at .
