Active in the field of force and torque measurements, SENSY offers both standard and customised torque transducers.

That is why we regularly respond to specific requests, such as:

More than just a manufacturer of measurement components, we are also a solutions provider. So we often work with integrators to develop test benches. The example below illustrates one of our most recent projects:

bancs d'essai mesure force couple

Problem :

At the request of a company specialising in the manufacture of hydraulic equipment, SENSY participated in the study and realisation of a test bench for the calibration of torque wrenches and dynamometric keys for an aircraft engine manufacturer.

Specification :

  • Torques to be measured ranged from 200 to 40,000 Nm.
  • The required precision was 0.1%.

Solution :

As part of this project, SENSY manufactured three torquemeters and also designed the software for a measurement management programme according to the customer’s specifications.

Torque transducer design:

  • Capacities:
    • 2,000 Nm
    • 10,000 Nm
    • 40,000 Nm
  • Accuracy: ± 0.1
    Calibration at the French National Laboratory for Metrology and Testing (LNE) in Paris. Supply of the necessary equipment for the mechanical interface between the torquemeters and the calibration machine.
  • Signal output: USB
  • Dimensions: tailor-made with grooves according to DIN 5480-1 standard (120 mm).

Data acquisition and processing software design with the following main functions:

  • Test data encoding (operator, customer, references and accepted measurement tolerance, etc.)
  • Torque measurement with display
  • Certificate printing
  • Audible alarm when the transducer capacity is reached
  • Data recording in a Microsoft Excel® file.

This application example shows how SENSY is able to meet the specific needs of the market in the torque measurement field and to work with integrators to provide know-how in complementary disciplines.

Even though we are able to respond to such specific and one-off demands, it should not be forgotten that SENSY also offers a range of standard reaction and rotating torque transducers with capacities ranging from 2 to 10,000 Nm.
