A Force Gauge is a measuring instrument used in mechanics to evaluate an applied force. Read on because we are going to talk about the measurement of the weight force in traction and compression.
Moreover, thanks to G21 s.r.l. we will discover how this measuring instrument is used in a very particular sector, that of bone cements in orthopaedics.
What is traction?
Traction is the stress to which a body, subjected to a system of divergent forces, undergoes.
The principle of tensile breaking strength was discovered by Galileo Galilei and illustrated in the treatise “Discorsi e dimostrazioni matematiche intorno a due nuove scienze del 1638”.
What is compression?
In mechanics, compression is one of the elementary mechanical stress forces, together with traction and bending. Compression is the stress to which a body, subject to a system of convergent forces, undergoes.
Force Gauce for the measurement of weight force in traction and compression
SAMA Tools name-brand, digital force gauges with internal or external load, are widely employed to measure the force in tension and compression and are able to operate over a range of 200.000 N.
These measuring instruments offer sensitivity and precision, are ideal for the many needs and can be accompanied, on request, by a calibration report or ACCREDIA certification.
Force Gauges for bone cements
They are widely used in many industrial fields.
Today, we’d like to talk about the force gauge used for bone cements.
Bone cements are successfully employed to anchor hip, knee, shoulder and elbow prostheses.
The role of our customer G21 S.r.l.
G21 S.r.l is a company in Modena, Italy that creates innovative solutions in the field of biomaterials and procedures for vertebral consolidation and restoration of joint functionality.
Since 2010, it has been opertaing according to a Quality System and conforms to EN ISO 13485 “Quality Management Systems – requirements for regulatory purposes applicable to Medical Devices”.
G21 has a catalogue of products (including long-term implantable and Class III medical devices) of which it has full know-how and design technology, and production. Research and Development are conducted internally and in collaboration with important research institutions and universities at an international level.
The company focuses on high quality raw materials, absolute control of processes and suppliers and complies with the most stringent international quality standards.
G21 relies mainly on us for the supply and calibration of tools for the control of breaking loads. Low traction forces in play require repeatability and high precision instrumentation, such as our Digital Force Gauges.
We’re talking in particular about the SADFGE-P model that is characterized by load cells of such sizes, that they cannot be integrated into the instrument body and sized to the loads they have to carry.
This tool uses a high-performance load cell that provides better accuracy, reducing bottom-up errors.
Get off to a good start with the SAMA Tools name-brand measuring instruments, just like G21 S.r.l. !
