Stress Analysis - Strain Gaging - Instrumentation - Load Cells

The stress profiles of mechanical components designed at Terracene International are modeled using standard FEA methods. Stringent quality control and thorough inspection procedures are applied during the design, fabrication, and test phases of our products. These design and analysis capabilities are an important part of the contract services we provide to our customers.

Stress models are used to provide predictions of the expected loads on mechanical components, but correct location and application of strain gages is a required step in confirming the models accuracy. A thorough knowledge regarding the behaviour of strain signal conditioners, data collection schemes, and data analysis is also necessary for establishing
a high level of confidence in the results.

Terracene has developed the required technical knowledge and expertise to provide a full range of design and analysis services for strain gauging of mechanical components or systems. Our extensive experience includes applications in harsh industrial and extreme temperature environments. We also provide a field service for applications that require in-situ stress analysis of equipment that is too large for transport or is permanently installed.

Our instrument design group is used to integrate stress analysis techniques with standard or custom electronics packages. Wireless networks, battery or solar powered instrumentation, and remote logging systems are commonly required by our customers.

We are also a representative for Intertechnology Inc., a leading supplier in Canada for Stress Analysis Products, Signal Conditioning Instrumentation, Physical Testing Systems and a wide rage of Sensors and Transducers.

Assistance with load cells, stress analysis, strain gauging, and instrumentation is available from the Stress Analysis Department at Terracene.
