Load Pins

The load sensing clevis pin or bolt is a unique strain gage transducer developed by Strainsert. It utilizes the internal strain gage process perfected by Strainsert during the last forty years and used so successfully in Strainsert bolts and flat load cells. The force sensing clevis pin offers percision force measurement by simply replacing existing shear pins, clevis pins, shear axles or many other type of pinned joints used by the Aerospace, Automotive, Military and Marine industries.
