Force Gages / Gauges

Force gauges can be mechanical or digital and they measure pushing or pulling forces. These devices are used in material evaluation, quality assurance, research, product development and educational applications. Force gauges can provide measurements in kilograms, grams, ounces, pounds, and Newtons of force, which users can select through either a digital menu or particular model.

Most digital force gauges are handheld devices. Some come with clamps or a hook that is made to support a load the device is capable of measuring. A compression kit can quickly convert a force gauge from measuring “pulling” tension into a compression meter that measures “pushing” force.
