Building on an early foundation of providing sensors for the medical device market, SMD has become the world leader for OEM-quality, thin film strain gauge force sensors and load cells — now serving the aerospace, biopharmaceutical and semiconductor markets as well. Standard SMD force sensor designs are available covering a wide range of capacities from milligrams to 5,000 Kg — with many models offering built-in overload protection via deflection stops.
Durable Sensors with Long-Term Stability
Armed with our 30 years of technical experience and our leading-edge thin film manufacturing process, SMD engineers can produce application-specific miniature load cell and micro load cell designs within tight time frames. These sensors can withstand the high temperature, pressure, and humidity of repeated autoclave cycles. SMD also offers custom electronic integration support for our OEM customers.
