HITECSensors has pioneered the design and manufacture of load cells, strain gauge-based force and torque sensors, instruments and complete test systems for nearly 50 years. It is headquartered in Massachusetts, USA, with specialist facilities in Michigan and Sri Lanka. Its broad range of sensor technology is applied to drive innovation of custom sensor solutions. Its devices are engineered for harsh environments and used to control interactions between operators and critical machinery in medical, aerospace, industrial, automotive, energy and many other applications.
Multi-Axis Sensors are designed to measure a multiple of forces and moments simultaneously with a single load cell sensor. These sensors provide multiple bridges that precisely measure the applied force from one direction with little or no cross-talk from the force or moment. Our 3-axis, 6-axis, and axial torsion load cells provide the ultimate in force and torque measurement. We can measure forces simultaneously in three mutually perpendicular axes, with the 6-axis load cells also measuring torque around those axes.
