Mechanical Force Gauges

Force Measurement

Imada mechanical force gauges are highly accurate instruments used to test the quality, strength or functionality of component parts or products. Imada mechanical force gauges check both compression and tension (push or pull). Peak force can be captured using the peak indicator needle and the tare ring compensates for the weight of attachments. Imada force gauges are constructed with a heavy-duty metal case and all metal components to enable them to retain their calibration for years with proper care. These mechanical force gauges never need charging or batteries and are intrinsically safe in hazardous environments.


Each mechanical force gauge kit includes a selection of tension and compression attachments. Optional compression plates, hooks and grips are available to provide a variety of ways to grip and apply force to samples.

Mechanical Force Gauges Ranges

Force testers are available in low capacity ranges up to 150 lbf in ounces, pounds, kilograms or Newtons with measurement accuracy up to ±0.2% F.S. High capacity force testers range up to 500 lbf in pounds, kilograms or Newtons with measurement accuracy up to ±0.3% F.S. Special compact mechanical force gauges are available and measure up to 50 lbf with measurement accuracy up to ±0.3% F.S.

Imada is ISO 9001 certified and each gauge is calibrated in our ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab.
