Tactile pressure sensor film technology

Paul Boughton

Sensor Products Inc is introducing Pressurex-micro Green (PMG) – a tactile surface pressure mapping sensor film product with the highest resolution and visual detail available for fast and accurate surface contact stress analysis.

Whether the application involves bolted interfaces, impressions between rollers, fine lines of electronic circuitry, lamination presses or heat sealers, engineers no longer need to be content with grainy and pixilated imagery in your surface pressure maps.
 Using a combination of sophisticated adhesives and pigment coating processes made with the greenest possible toxin-free recyclable materials, PMG accomplishes what other surface mapping products have done but without the heavy environmental footprint - making corporate certification departments happy all over the world.
“Pressurex-micro Green was developed in response to customers’ needs for an inexpensive yet credible surface pressure mapping sensor,” says Jeffrey Stark, president of Sensor Products Inc.  “It fulfills our customers’ primary requirement – pressure distribution mapping at a sharply reduced price. By excluding the frequently unnecessary feature of pressure magnitude determination, engineers are able to obtain a-la-carte functionality paying for only what they really need. Now, instead of waiting, users can perform an immediate visual assessment.”
PMG is thin, flexible and conformable allowing its use in tight spaces, especially where draping over curvaceous surfaces is required. Like other surface pressure mapping products, PMG comes on a roll and can easily be cut with scissors to the desired sizes and shapes required for your application. PMG is a thin (8 mils) colour changing visual indicator film that captures and reveals surface contact force between any two physically contacting surfaces, the color change is instantaneous and permanent. The more intense the color the higher the pressure.

Sensor Products Inc offers five distinct pressure ranges of PMG. PMG reveals pressure within these ranges but does not reveal the actual pressure magnitude occurring.
