Tekscan is the leading manufacturer of tactile pressure sensors and measurement systems. Our pressure mapping systems are used by product designers and test engineers throughout the research, design, testing, and manufacturing cycle to verify and enhance product performance. The informative data allows companies to save money in design, design verification, reengineering, and machine set-up costs.

Each Tekscan pressure measurement system includes scanning electronics, software, and ultra-thin pressure sensors. Our highly qualified sales and engineering support team can assist you in selecting the optimal system and pressure sensors for your application (Tekscan’s patented pressure sensors do not work without Tekscan scanning electronics and software). Our pressure measurement systems are designed to let you add on various sensor models, software modules, and upgrade options as your needs evolve.
Pressure sensors with Proven Results
Using our high resolution, tactile pressure sensors and pressure measurement systems, customers around the globe are gaining insight into their static and dynamic pressure events. The flexibility of our pressure measurement systems allow for use in a multitude of industrial and research applications. Whatever your application is, Tekscan offers you a total solution. We design and manufacture the complete system and provide the support and training necessary to exceed your expectations.
“Tekscan came in for a demonstration, and within five minutes we were watching a live output from our system and our jaws hit the floor. It literally made the pressure sensitive film we had been using look like bear skins and knives. It was that much of a quantum leap improvement. The Tekscan system paid for itself in the first five minutes. We got almost priceless information from it.”
Former Senior Research Engineer
“I encountered Tekscan and had the feeling of an engineer’s dream come true. Working with granular materials and soil-structure interaction, one encounters problems with large stress variations. My observations in a journal paper published by ASTM in 1997 continue to hold: The ability of the grid-based tactile pressure sensor’s system to provide real-time normal stress distribution over an area is unmatched by any other known technique. This ability provides us with an insight into the behavior and mechanisms of geomaterials that could not have been imagined previously.”
