Custom Strain Gages
from the World’s Leading Semiconductor Strain Gage Manufacturer

Micron Instruments offers the widest range of Semiconductor Strain Gages, in UN-Backed Bar, U, and M shapes, and in backed Half and Full Bridge Configurations for Bending, Load and Torque Measurements.

Micron’s strain gages address a wide diversity of sensor requirements:
  • Resistance ranging from 15 to 10,000 ohms or greater
  • Gage Factor ranging from 90 to 170
  • TCR ranging from 5 to 40, and TCGF ranging from -10 to -20
  • Physical sizes ranging from 0.018” to 0.250” in length
  • Ball bond, wedge bond, or welded bond options

Micron’s gages can be precisely matched using proprietary, state-of-the-art test instrumentation to optimize Wheatstone bridge performance over temperature.

Micron’s expertise and test instrumentation are also ideal for creating customer-specified strain gages, in small to very high production quantities. The Micron capability can be especially useful when looking for gages that can be dropped in existing, production sensors.

If you’re interested in discussing options or have a gage specification you’d like to get a quotation on, please email us using our Contact Us Form or call us at 805-522-4676. We’re open M-F from 7am to 3:30pm Pacific Time.

Our core product line, the Semiconductor Strain Gages shown below are manufactured in our facility in Simi Valley, California. The gages are used in a wide variety of applications where this a need to Measure Load, Shear, Force Torque, Pressure, Temperature and many other physical and environmental conditions.
