Peekel Instruments provides:

  • Bonding and glueing of straingauge bridges onto customer's structures in our Rotterdam works, including temperature treatment
  • Bonding of strain gauge bridges onto customer's structures on-site
  • Straingauge measurements
  • Development and production of customer-specified loadcells
  • Calibration of loadcells, incl. certifications to various standards

Peekel Instruments' decades-long experience on this subject is now also available for other parties. At Rotterdam we have facilities for various sorts of temperature treatment on both, the transducer structure, and the actual cemented straingauges (temperature curing). In some cases we might be sending a specialized engineer to the site, where straingauges have to be fitted.

Of course this also includes the fitting of any type of coating, protection, connection and cabling.
