FORCE GAUGE APPLICATION GUIDE
Force gauges are used across all kinds of industries, in laboratories, manufacturing and educational institutions for product testing and quality control applications. There are many instances where force is used to activate something and the amount of force applied must be within defined limits. Force gauges typically employ a load cell and the force being sensed deforms a strain gauge. The resultant force measurement is transferred to a digital display or, in the case of a mechanical force gauge, a dial indicator type display.
In physics, a force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change, either concerning its movement, direction, or geometrical construction. It is measured with the SI unit of Newtons. In other words, a force is that which can cause an object with mass to change its velocity, that is, to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform.
The SI unit of force. It is equal to the force that would give a mass of one kilogram an acceleration of one metre per second per second.
Kilogram Force (kgf)
The kilogram-force is equal to a mass of 1 kg multiplied by the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth, which is defined as 9.80665 metre per second per second.
1 kilogram-force is equal to 9.80665 Newton.
