High Temperature Pressure Sensors Now Available!

Measure Interface Pressure in Environments as hot as 400°F (200°C)!

Tekscan’s high-temperature, ultra-thin (0.2 mm), high resolution, matrix, pressure sensors are ideal for making interface pressure measurements between mating surfaces in a variety of application areas including:

  • Molds
  • Gaskets
  • Heat Sinks
  • Sealing Bars
  • Print Rollers & Nips
  • And much more!

These pressure sensors and measurement systems are used to measure the contact pressure distribution pattern between practically any two mating surfaces. They quickly and easily identify and display peak and low pressure areas in real-time, allowing you to adjust machines and parts appropriately. Data can also be recorded over time.
