Is Force Measurement Evolving into Materials Testing?

Posted on November 1, 2016

In the past force measurement generally meant obtaining a peak load measurement on a product, part or material to verify or validate that the product or part could exceed or withstand a specified load. Force measurement was generally accepted as a fairly innocuous test performed in the lab or on the production floor. Material testing, however, is considered the science of determining a product’s physical characteristics.
