Force Measuring Systems

Achieve the highest precision in compliance with all production parameters in your production lines by applying IMS force measuring systems. Experience incomparable quality, flexibility and durability.

  • precise

  • fast

  • dynamic

The strain on the bellow which is manufactured either by steel or aluminium is measured with wire resistance strain gauges. An in-house developed measuring amplifier, type MMV, processes the measuring data and provides the power for the force sensor.

Several field-bus interfaces are available. Even in smallest quantities tailor-made IMS force measuring systems are qualified for retrofitting or replacement of existing third-party systems.

With an internal calibration standard the systems calibrate themselves automatically without any external calibration tools.

We are extending our product portfolio with rolling force measuring systems for Plate & Hot Rolling Mills. Currently an endurance test is taking place in a Hot Rolling Mill at a reference customer.
